    How to use AI in the house


    by pavlos.thes ·

    I’ve been using VoiceGPT for a while now. It’s a nice android app which allows interacting with ChatGPT by voice. I was wondering if there’s a viable and affordable way with today’s tecnnology to have this wonderful AI, or any other, “always available” in the house. Something like a device that can connect to wireless microphones and speakers around the house, with no need to click buttons before speaking, just talk and get a reply. I know Google Home does that, but i don’t like the way Google responds and i’d prefer a more private and custom solution.

      That ChatGPT since its release is less than a year old. We’ll get there if you want a ready to use device like that but ALL OF THEM will collect user data unless you create your own.

      Check out Reddit’s ChatGPT sub for what’s going on with self hosting a GPT type system.

      I understand your interest in having an “always available” AI assistant in your house, similar to VoiceGPT but with more privacy and customization options. While technologies like Google Home provide voice-activated assistants, you’re looking for an alternative solution.

      Fortunately, there are viable options available today that can meet your requirements. One approach is to set up a smart speaker system that integrates with an AI assistant of your choice. These smart speakers can connect to wireless microphones and speakers throughout your house, allowing you to interact with the AI by simply speaking.

      To ensure privacy and customization, you can explore open-source AI assistant platforms or self-hosted solutions. These options give you more control over your data and enable customization according to your preferences. Some examples include Mycroft AI and

      By opting for such solutions, you can have an “always available” AI assistant that respects your privacy and offers more customization options compared to commercially available alternatives. Be sure to research and evaluate the different platforms available to find the one that best suits your needs and preferences.

      recognize your need for a “always available” AI assistant—think VoiceGPT, but with additional personalization and privacy options—in your home. You’re searching for a different approach even though voice-activated assistants are available thanks to technology like Google Home.

      There are various ways you can incorporate AI (Artificial Intelligence) into your home to enhance efficiency, convenience, and overall smart living. Here are some popular applications:

      Smart Assistants:

      Use voice-activated smart assistants like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple’s Siri to control various devices in your home. These assistants can control lights, thermostats, locks, and more.

      Smart Home Automation:

      Invest in a smart home hub or controller (e.g., SmartThings, HomeKit) to centralize control over your smart devices. This allows you to create automation routines, such as turning off lights and locking doors when you leave home.

      Smart Lighting:

      Install smart bulbs or smart switches that can be controlled via a mobile app or voice commands. You can set schedules, adjust brightness, and change colors to create different moods

      Smart Thermostats:

      Install a smart thermostat to control heating and cooling systems. These devices can learn your preferences, adjust settings based on your habits, and can often be controlled remotely.
      Security Cameras and Systems:

      Use AI-powered security cameras that can detect and alert you to unusual activity. Some systems have facial recognition, allowing you to receive specific alerts for familiar faces.

      AI-Powered Appliances:

      Some modern appliances, such as refrigerators, ovens, and washing machines, come with AI features. These features may include predictive maintenance, energy optimization, and adaptive cooking.

      AI-Based Voice Control:

      Explore AI-based voice control systems that use natural language processing to understand complex commands and questions. This can make interacting with your smart home devices more intuitive.
      Smart Locks:

      Upgrade to smart locks that can be controlled remotely. You can lock or unlock doors using a mobile app or integrate them into your automation routines.

      AI in Entertainment:

      Use AI-powered streaming services that recommend content based on your viewing habits. Voice-activated systems can also control your entertainment setup, such as adjusting volume or changing channels.

      Health and Wellness:

      Some AI applications focus on health and wellness, such as smart mirrors that can analyze your skin or fitness devices that provide personalized workout recommendations.
