Running matrix without internet connection -offline use


#1

Hi all,
i started with matrix voice on a raspberry pi because i dont want to use Alexa or Googles assistant in a cloud.
i was confused about all the modules that can be installed. With a matrix voice you get pointed to the matrix creator which is not the same. that is the first thing that is very confusing to newbies.
On the first try i get all the demos running. I am not a programmer…so it was difficult to find the right modules for me but in the end it works as expected. Then i connected my raspberry camera to to the Pi3.
Start to try deploying apps…and the matrix-cli - i need to register on a cloud service…and at least at admobilize.com. That is exactly what i not want to do…connect my device to a cloud based service…

can anyone tell me what i need to do to use matrix voice in an offline mode?

Hi, you can use Snips as an offline assistant. Of course it’s not as good as google or alexa, but works good enough for some smart home controls.
