The radio-box Text2Voice is a premium feature that enables you to have the date, time, and subject of the reminder read back to you using Konnech's text-to-speech technology. This feature is particularly useful when used to alert you of important incoming emails by calling you and reading them to you over the phone. Please contact Konnech® for more information on service plans for this feature.

The radio-box Text2Voice+ is a premium feature. The + version allows for up to six (6) phone numbers to be dialed. This feature can be used to alert a group of people of a reminder or to find people wherever they might be. Based on a set of forwarding numbers and a forwarding schedule, reminders are intelligently routed to the preset destination(s). With Text2Voice+, no important or urgent reminder will be missed. Please contact Konnech® for more information on service plans for this feature.

The radio-box Interactive Voice Response is a premium feature. The IVR feature extends the functionality of the Text2Voice by allowing you to take action after recieving the alert. Please contact Konnech for more information on service plans for this feature.

The radio-box Sensors is an advanced option for integrating security and sensor alerts into the K'Alert program. This feature allows you to be alerted of faults that are triggered in your computer or security system. Konnech manufacturers hardware that allows you to plug any compatible sensor into your computer using our PCI sensor controller. Please contact Konnech® for more information on this feature.
