People treat those things like they're Jarvis from Iron Man, but really you're just getting a bunch of preprogrammed responses. In the meantime, you're introducing a microphone to your house that listens for key words to help with targeted ads. So enjoy the surveillance I guess?

That's too bad that the responses are pre programmed. I want Google to make up answers on the spot when I ask it questions.

My entire house is controlled by Google Chromecasts, etc.  The best part is watching movies with voice control. Instant pause and play, go back an exact amount of time when you miss something, all without fumbling for a remote or iPad. Its great for changing the lights easily in any part of the house. Music being called up instantly from wherever I am. I could never go back. The only downside is having to say 'OK google' before a command.

List is missing FARK.  I'm surprised, considering.  It's useful for when you want to get around the filter, after all.  You just have to include the code in a post using emoji.

Are you able to have the system perform functions without being connected to the internet? I guess something like that would require an in-house server?

It's called "Crestron" integrated with Josh.ai for voice control. You pay for the products with cash and not with your privacy and marketing opportunities. If internet goes down, you loose some voice control features and things like streaming or channel presets that show current programming on the remotes, but you can still control everything in your house with a single remote (if properly programmed).

But it's not DIY and a complete, robust, well programmed system for a 1500 sq foot home will probably cost in excess of $100k, so Alexa, Hue lights and no privacy is what most of us will opt for.

Also, say "More Cowbell" to your Alexa.

And ask it what the average speed of an unladen swallow is.

And ask it "who loves ya' baby?"

Thanks for the info....looks like no 'Jarvis' for me at that price.

I have a Sonos system on all my TVs, but they are all Roku instead of Chromecast, so I miss out on all those voice features. Kind of bummed, but I like the Roku interface and that it is built-in vs having a dongle. I guess I could get a voice Roku remote. I also have almost all hubless lights so can turn them all on/off by voice which is nice, as well as the thermostat.

/yes I'm lazy, bite me
//it's just me and the puppy in the house, and I don't talk to myself, so they get nothing unless I am on the phone and then I guess it goes to both Google and NSA
///oh well

On a separate but unrelated note, can I borrow some money?

I only install and maintain that kind of stuff for people who can afford it. That means I'm usually broke. Try asking Alexa.

Short list.

Do it in Dead by Daylight (W W S S A D A D rightmouse leftmouse enter) and get a Vic Viper charm.

I'm less against Big Tech putting this stuff out there. I get the good uses along with the bad that all information being sucked up will do. Like, how do you think Google Maps can predict, almost to the minute, you're going to get to your destination? Mild, minimal phone tracking, that's how. I'm more offended by the people that buy listening devices that don't get that the devices will listen.

I didn't buy an Alexa because there's no way to guarantee the microphone isn't always on. I get it, I'm uncomfortable with it, I don't buy the product.  But the world is full of stupid people that purchase without thinking. Which is downloading shiat off the internet and not virus checking it first levels of dumb.
