Also no experience with Ivee.
Still in the infant stages… it works okay, but not perfectly. As Ben said, some weird popups now and where it thinks you’re trying to talk to it when you’re not… especially in a TV room.
Voice recognition is by no means perfect, but in ideal situations (ie: little background noise, 5-15 feet from the Ubi, facing the Ubi) I’d say I get correct recognition about 95+% of the time.
When other variables are introduced (more back noise, outside of that 5-15 feet range, not facing Ubi), recognition drops to 40%(ish).
Other points of interest:
Pretty decent integration with ST. ST devices (switches, outlets,
motion sensors) can trigger Ubi to do things directly. Likewise
simple custom behaviors can be setup to direct turn on/off ST
With Advanced Custom Behaviors Ubi and make Http requests and
received http requests as triggers. You can also pass variables for
Ubi to say by embedding the phrase in the http request.
Ubi is now setup with IFTTT … still in Beta, but works well enough.
They are adding people to the Beta group regularly.
Ubi can access a Google Calendar (also still in Beta) and will
announce when events are coming up.
