Bringing Convenience and Comfort to Your Home with Advanced Automation

Voice Assistant Contest – Let’s build and win some prizes!

TL;DR: We’re organizing a voice assistant contest between the seventeenth of January and the tenth of March. You possibly can win some Home Assistant Green, Home Assistant SkyConnect, and an opportunity to be on a livestream with us to speak about your work.

2023 was the Year of the Voice. It was a yearly purpose to let customers management Residence Assistant in their very own language.
We constructed some superb issues all year long, from a really highly effective intent recognizer particularly optimized to run on a small pc like a Raspberry Pi 4, all the best way to customized wake phrases created by our neighborhood.

In truth, we imagine that what we constructed throughout the Yr of the Voice permits nearly anybody to construct a voice assistant that embodies our Open Residence values completely: Personalised, Non-public, and Sustainable.
Each part of our voice assistants could be closely custom-made to suit your language, your fashion and your wants, totally native choices exist for every of them, and at last you may retrofit voice assistant into something, even a 1970s Walkie Talkie present in a flea market

That is why, after spending a yr constructing nice issues, we wish to have fun what our voice assistants can allow with the neighborhood: We’re launching a voice assistant contest, with nice prizes to win!

Contest specifics

The contest will be held between Today (the 17th of January) and the 10th of March.

We tried to be as inclusive as possible. The contest is not only about building voice assistant hardware, it is also about building voice experiences that can be used with any voice assistant (For example, a blueprint that you can use to generate images from voice and cast them on your TV: “Present me an image of an astronaut driving a unicorn!”)

An entry within the contest can take any kind: A video, a weblog publish, an internet site, an occasion, and so on.

The one requirement is so that you can publish on this forum category, that is the way you formally take part within the contest.

Winners will likely be introduced on the fifteenth of March.

A closing ceremony will happen on the tenth of April within the type of a livestream. Winners will likely be invited!

Contest categories

You can participate in the contest in four different categories.

Most creative satellite ideas

We have all the ingredients to unleash creativity: Custom sentences, custom wake words, custom voices. This category is here to showcase your smartest ideas.
We will be judging the creativity, uniqueness, and coherency of the whole package.

Example: Piitaya’s shifting and speaking droid.

Best starting guides

Because our voice assistant can be heavily customized, starting can be daunting. This category showcases the easiest ways to create a voice assistant for a novice. From ordering parts, flashing the firmware, integrating it into Home Assistant, and using it.
We will judge how easy the guide is to follow and how usable the final product is.

Example: The amazingly complete guide to build a Wyoming Voice Assistant Satellite by YouTuber FutureProofHome.

Best events organized, best group effort

Building privacy-focused technology only makes sense if we can get people to use it. Go to a hackerspace, invite some people, and build some voice assistants together!
We will be judging the impact of the event (Size, outcome, topics discussed, etc)

Best voice experiences

This category is here for people who want to participate in the contest but not necessarily build a hardware product. This is all about creating the best experience using a voice assistant on Home Assistant.
We support custom sentences, custom responses, and custom actions.
Go crazy, be creative, and show us how to unlock the potential of our voice assistants.
We will be judging how useful the experience is, how easy it is to integrate it, and of course, of fun it is.

Example: Play any music on any speaker in your home from a blueprint.

Contest prizes

For each category, the winner will receive:

Runners-up will receive a Home Assistant SkyConnect.

The neighborhood will even get an opportunity to vote for a favourite entry. The selection of the neighborhood will even obtain the identical prizes as a class winner (A Home Assistant Green, A Home Assistant SkyConnect, a spot on the livestream on the tenth of April).
