your WiFi voice-activated assistant
Created by Jonathon Nostrant and an LA based development team ivee Sleek is an assistant for your home that enables you to engage with your connected devices and other online data streams using voice commands.
"Hello ivee, make it cooler in here" >> "Ok, I've turned down the thermostat to 72 degrees"
It connects to your home network via 802.11b/g and uses a beam-forming microphone to give it an operating range of 10-15 feet. Saying "hello ivee," prompts the device for a command which uses AT&T’s Speech API (Watson) and WolframAlpha’s computational knowledge engine to check and respond to your request.
ivee has its own built-in light and temperature sensors to provide feedback about its immediate environment and the team plans to connect to Lowe's Iris and several other Connected Home systems to harness their capabilities of managing Bluetooth, Z-Wave and other types of devices.
