New Features: Hue, Iris, and More!

We have several exciting new features to announce, so let’s get to it!

 

Philips Hue Integration

ivee can now can control Philips Hue, the wireless, color-changing lighting system. We know many of you have been eagerly anticipating Hue integration for a while, so we are very happy to release it to you. You can say things like, “make the Hue lights green,” or “turn off the Hue lights.” A complete list of commands can be found here: http://my.helloivee.com/commands/hue .

Lowe’s Iris, Now Controlled by ivee and Your Voice 

ivee is now fully integrated with Iris, the smart home management system from Lowe’s. Iris is a complete home automation platform, so connecting it with ivee allows you to voice control a wide array of devices including security systems, lights, thermostats, garage doors, cameras, window blinds, and so much more. This particular integration has been in the works for a long time, so it is especially gratifying to release it to you now.

Accuracy, Speed, and Stock Quote Improvements

 As some of you have already noticed, ivee’s accuracy and speed have increased over the last month. You can expect that trend to continue. We’ve also added a few more companies to ivee’s Stocks knowledge base. We want to make sure that you can get quotes from the companies you care about., so feel free to email us or post a comment below with any company that you would like us to add. Keep in mind that ivee recognizes company names, not ticker symbols.

Belkin WeMo Integration Coming Soon

 We know you are eager to control your WeMo devices by voice, so we are hard at work making that happen. We are on track to release WeMo integration by early July.

The ivee Web Platform is Under Construction! 

We are hard at work on a collection of APIs that we collectively call the ivee Web Platform. This platform will enable third-party developers to create voice apps for ivee that can do everything from controlling new smart home devices to retrieving movie times and everything in between. We are making significant progress, and we will make more detailed announcements as we get closer to release.
