Few questions regarding using AVS inside a hardware product that I haven't been able to find answers to.
1) Are you allowed to use AVS alongside native voice in a hardware product?
We'd like to have native functions alongside Alexa. For example, we'd like the user to be able to say "Assistant, show me my calendar" (which is ignored by AVS because they don't say the Alexa wake up word). In this case, we'd receive the audio, process the words spoken, and perform the appropriate action. In cases where we received a notification from AVS that the Alexa wakeup word was used, we'd silence our own NLP and let Alexa do its work.
2) What certification is required for a hardware product?
This link explains how to receive approval for marketing materials - do you need additional approval for a hardware product? Where is that information?
