Project Alias Teachable Smart Assistant Control

Use your smart speaker on your terms with the Project Alias Teachable Smart Assistant Control. This accessory prevents the microphones on your smart home speakers from listening in when they shouldn’t. Currently compatible with Amazon Echo and Google Home, Project Alias sits right on top of your existing smart speaker. It interrupts the microphone’s listening capabilities by repetitively playing a low sound through its speakers. Upon saying your wake word, Project Alias stops the continual stream of noise, allowing for communication to continue as usual. In addition, Alias is an open-source project that offers its source code on GitHub. If you’re interested in printing your own shell, simply follow the instructions and use Raspberry Pi to create your own. Once you have your own Alias, you can train it to respond to a custom wake word for easy communication.
