A Product-specific Voice Assistant
The Snips Platform is designed for on-device integration across any type of connected device. Whether you’re building a lightbulb, thermostat, or speaker – you can add a voice assistant in just a few steps.
Build your assistant in 3 steps
Snips is easy to integrate, highly customizable, and can be deployed to any platform. And it consumes such little resources that it can run directly on a Raspberry Pi!
Cloud-based AI platforms charge per query, leading to unpredictable variable costs. Snips' on the other hand costs a fixed amount per device, making the voice assistant a component like any other!
Remember when Amazon S3 went down, and our IoT devices broke down? Relying on the cloud creates a single point of failure for your product, which cannot happen with Snips, since it runs fully on-device!
How does Snips compare?
Existing cloud providers offer some great features. But being on-device and open-source means Snips can offer unique things, while performing as good or better than the others.
