First off, I need to correct the negative reviewers in that is DOES have home automation capabilities. I have a Nest and it works great with it. I will admit that voice recognition is not 100% accurate, but even humans aren't 100% accurate at voice recognition. How many times have you heard someone say 'What?' when spoken to. However, if you enunciate your words and make sure you're saying the correct command, it works 9 out of 10 times (depending on background voices).

They will also be adding more devices in the future. It may not work with everything now, but eventually it will (I hope). And the devices it does work with, function very well.

The weather feature also works well, and is awesome! You can get current weather or a forecast (within a week).

Other neat features are Stocks and this 'Tell me Something' command I just found out about that gives you random facts.

Bottom line is if you speak clearly and say the proper commands, ivee works great. I see huge potential in this product. They are releasing updates all of the time and I am noticing it get better and better. This is just the beginning of this whole 'Home Automation by Voice' and ivee is a great fit for that. A nice, friendly voice (better than Siri's voice) to assist you.

I got mine a couple weeks ago. I was soooo excited to receive my IVEE. It was advertised to control a dozen or so home devices like those here in Staples, Philips Hue, and Belkin Wemo. Well guess what? It is currently (allegedly) ready to control only the Nest thermostat. I say "allegedly" since it can't do anything correctly (at least for me & hundreds of others complaining on their KickStarter page). Lets hope it doesn't use its own internal thermometer since it is about 10-15 higher than the actual temp in your room.

Some days, it will NEVER respond to the "Hello Ivee" command; but other days, it does. When it does, it only has a 5% accuracy rate. For example, I will say "Hello Ivee" and then ask "What is the weather like?" (a command it was programmed to answer). The answer, 95% of the time, is something like the weather in "Zimbabwe South Africa" (I kid you not), the time, setting the alarm, or anything else (that you didn't request). It is infuriating!

Bottom line. This $200 device doesn't do anything it was says it does and it so full of bugs and issues, it is insulting that this Company (not Staples) is selling them. Do not buy! There will be repercussions and it isn't going to be positive. If you got yours from Staples, they will be happy to refund your money.

It has a great potential, but it's not ready.
it barely understand the command, and forget about calling ivee when she is playing radio. She won't hear you.

Product is okaaaayyyy

Comments about Interactive Voice IVEE Sleek Wi-Fi Voice-Activated Assistant, Black:

Purchased this product as part of my home automation system. Setup was pretty easy an simple to complete. The voice activation is a really cool aspect of the product. You can ask ivee to tell you ssomething funny, sad, etc. She is full of random facts and funny personality. My only complaint lies in the reliability of the network connection. Often I get "unable to connect to network" as ivee's response to my question or discussion. It is great that she will turn on my hue lights and off as well.

Not ready for prime time

Comments about Interactive Voice IVEE Sleek Wi-Fi Voice-Activated Assistant, Black:

Great concept poor execution. Ivee did not recognize my commands 8 out of 10 times. Tried every which way to make it work but it's appears needs better voice recognition software. Save your money wait for version two or three!

Quirky start hoping it gets better.

By GARY

Comments about Interactive Voice IVEE Sleek Wi-Fi Voice-Activated Assistant, Black:

unit was bought to be used with my iris smart system. The voice activation feature is very quirky. I am a male with a very clear well under stood voice. 9 out of ten time when I ask ivee to turn on my light it turns on the alarm. When I as for the tempeture I get the temIture in China, Japan, or some other place. I find if I wiser from across my bed room it tends to understand me better. The unit has been active for about a week and I and the unit may have a learning curve (i hope so.).
