It’s here Warren – now meet the Home Phone that has found its voice. Introducing the world’s first Wireless Home Telephone with Alexa built-in. — With one-touch access to Alexa, phone calls are as easy as saying “Alexa, call Dad”.
The Motorola AX Series features Alexa built-in and includes a Wireless Home Telephone System

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM., June 10, 2019 – SGW Global, a designer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art wireless products, and official licensee of the Motorola brand for corded and cordless home telephones products globally, are delighted to announce the official launch of the world’s first Wireless Home Telephone with Amazon Alexa built-in.*
A significant evolution for the Wireless Home Telephone – a product long considered a lifeline for many and responsible for facilitating billions of conversations worldwide every day – SGW Global is now bringing Alexa and voice recognition to an even wider audience.
Using Alexa on the Motorola AX Series is simple — just tap and ask Alexa to call your contacts by name, such as “Alexa, call Dad.” Calling through Alexa will use your existing home telephone service to reach your contacts on their mobile or landline phones. You can also place calls to Echo devices – just tap and say “Alexa, call Mom’s Echo” to reach her on a supported Echo device or through the Alexa mobile app.
It doesn’t stop there for the Wireless Home Telephone either. With Alexa built-in, you can also access the same features customers know and love about the voice service, including the ability to control smart home devices, ask questions, access tens of thousands of skills, and more – just by asking.
According to Richard Hall-Smith, Product Director at SGW Global “DECT and ULE wireless technology is, and remains, the leading RF technology for two-way voice. It has proven itself as the most reliable and mature long-range technology to support a superior telephony experience in the home, due to its interference-free frequency bands and clear natural voice. Our customers are looking for only the best in voice and user experience. With the growing adoption of smart home speakers and IoT devices, especially those featuring Alexa built-in, an integration of Alexa was the natural choice for SGW Global.”
“SGW has made the cordless home phone relevant again by updating it with Amazon’s Alexa technology”, said Dave Carroll, Executive Director Motorola Brand Licensing. “The Motorola AX Series brings the type of innovation that Motorola is known for, updating this critical communication device for so many consumers around the world.”
“We’re thrilled by SGW Global’s commitment to bring the power of Alexa to new and existing customers through SGW’s wireless home telephone solution,” said Pete Thompson, Director, Alexa Voice Service. “Not only is Alexa built-in, this is the first device to offer both Alexa-to-Alexa and landline-to-landline calling via Alexa, which gives customers even more choice and convenience in how they communicate with friends and family.”
