What is Alexa Built-in or “ABI”?

Alexa-Integrated products give users a hassle-free Alexa experience. These Touchstone fireplaces will be the Alexa device, so you don’t need to pair an Alexa compatible Touchstone fireplace with an Alexa device like an Echo Dot, Echo Show or Echo Studio to use Alexa features.

What about the fireplace?

These ABI fireplaces will be the same Touchstone Sideline Elites and Infinities that have become marketplace leaders in quality, flame display and support. Key features include:

  • The most realistic flame display 6 flame color options
  • 5 flame brightness options with “no flame” option
  • 10 ember bed color options
  • 5 ember bed color options with “no ember” option
  • 3 variable flame speeds
  • Thermostat heater support
  • 30 minute to 8 hour timer

What can the Alexa Built-in fireplace do?

Aside from delivering the most realistic and reliable electric fireplace performance, an “ABI” fireplace can work with:

  • Voice interactions - Wake up the unit by voice. Ask a Alexa a question by voice. Enjoy all the core Alexa features you get with an Echo device.
  • Stream audio - Use your Touchstone ABI fireplace to playback audio from your favorite music service provider.
  • Control fireplace by voice - Change the flame color, update the flame speed or turn on the heat, directly by voice.
  • Crackle Sound - These new Touchstone fireplaces have a dual-speaker fire crackle sound built in. With the ABI you can turn that realistic sound on with your voice.
