Amulet Reseller Program recent activities.

Fri, October 15, 2010 by

After the full product launch of the Amulet Voice Remote for Windows Media Center, a lot of the focus has moved to building our Amulet Reseller Program. I am delighted to say that we have had a great response. We are busy processing applications from across the country and will be updating our web site with a list of approved resellers soon.

The latest activity is a newsletter to our resellers launching some promotional offers we have available for them. These include deals on units for demonstration and evaluation as well as multiple unit offers.

The Amulet Reseller Program is open to distributors and resellers of Window Media Center systems, as well as Custom Installers and Home Automation specialists that may be using Media Center at the moment. Or perhaps you’ve seen enough here to consider using Media Center. We are bringing Voice Control to homes, just fill in the application form to be a part of it.

Support forum is now live!

Sat, October 9, 2010 by

We have the Amulet Devices support forum up and running! It took a little longer than planned, but it’s there now. This should be your main avenue for support for your Voice Remote and the Media Center Plugin software. We actively monitor the forum and respond to support queries. There are currently three sections at the moment.

The first covers installation, any problems you might have getting the Amulet Voice Remote installed, connected to your Windows Media Center, or in relation to getting the Amulet Media Center Plugin software up and running smoothly.

The second area is for general support covering ongoing operation, performance, commands or any tips, tricks, or hints that might be useful. It doesn’t have to be purely support issues. We’re happy for users to exchange their experiences with each other.

There is also a forum for resellers and custom installers, which is not available to everyone. Please fill in the Reseller application form if you’d like to get access to this area.

Online Store launch for the Amulet Voice Remote

Tue, October 5, 2010 by

We now have the online store up and running and to celebrate the launch, we’re offering a 10% discount on the Amulet Voice Remote. This is a great accessory for Windows Media Center, which is part of Windows 7. We have the remote and also an IR receiver available via the store. This addon might be needed if you don’t already have an infra-red receiver with your Media Center.

We plan to add some extra accessories, including additional high quality voices for use with Amulet’s Media Center plugin. As we use standard SAPI voices, they will also be available to use in other Windows Speech-enabled applications.


Our First Review

Tue, September 21, 2010 by

It’s great to finally have the product shipping, and you know it’s hit the real world when you see the first review. Mike Garcen over at was quick out of the blocks and got his hands on the first of the first of a kind Amulet Voice Remote Control. He seemed pretty happy with the performance and quality, but that’s perhaps to be expected for a keen user. Still it’s great to get feedback and see someone enjoying a new way of interacting with their Media Center. I’d like to comment on a few of the points he made during his review.

User guide coverWe’ve been keeping our heads down for the last few months at Amulet HQ as we finalise manufacturing details of the Voice Remote and put the finishing touches to the Media Center Plugin software and documentation.

EnGadget cleverly noticed that we recently achieved FCC approval for our MC accessory, which means that we’ll soon be shipping units to our patient customers!
