Echo, shmecho. Who needs an Amazon-backed personal assistant when ivee is on the scene? Ivee is a voice-controlled hub, similar to the Echo, which takes up much less space and comes with a much cheaper price tag. What’s more, the device boasts deep integration with popular smart home devices like those from Nest, Belkin WeMo, Philip’s Hue, Logitech Harmony, SmartThings, Wink and Lowe’s Iris. Ivee is even smart enough to help you call for an Uber, play music from Spotify, and even contact emergency first responders.
Using ivee is simple. Just say “okay, ivee” and your personal assistant will come to life and await further instruction. Sound useful? The 300 people who have helped ivee’s Kickstarter project raise over $30,000 in just a couple of days certainly think so. Make sure to check out their campaign page and lend your support if you want to get your hands on an intelligent personal assistant of your own.
