Alexa or Jasper?
Does anyone have any experience of setting up either of these services on your pi?
Would you recommend either of them?
I have only found out of date tutorials for jasper, and not sure if Alexa will work in the UK
Any feedback or comments you have would be appreciated
I used this switch, since it has a RGB led built into the ring for display indications. Alexa works pretty well, but I haven’t tried to integrate that into the magicmirror program. I’m just using it as a separate feature.
Obviously they’re two different services. I like Alexa since it’s not always listening (Hence the button). Some people like the Jasper “always on” feature much like “ok google” or whatever you say to start siri. I recommend taking a look at both to see which better suits you.
I’m thinking Alexa, just so I can get it to play music through my prime subscription.
I don’t have a button yet.
I’m not looking to integrate it in to the mirror, just have it running in the background if possible.
I tried installing Jasper last night, but the links on that howchoo site are out of date so I gave up.
@mochman Could you use your Swipe module instead of a button?
@Mitchfarino Yeah, I’m going to have to tweak the code for the the swipe module though. Right now it puts out a press for 1 second. Alexa needs you to hold down the button for your entire question.
