• What is it?

    The AVS Kit is software that runs on a raspberryPi, essentially turning it into an Echo. Unlike what's available elsewhere, this software only takes minutes to setup and doesn't require any programming. Essentially, it only takes one line in a command prompt to install!

    What's included?

    The software also includes Sensory's TrulyHandsfree Alexa trigger so you can get the full Alexa experience. You can quickly connect and test out different USB microphones with the software, including different DSP evaluation kits... and, you can do this headlessly using a web console.

    What do you need?

    A raspberryPi, microSD card, PC speakers, and a USB mic (or USB-enabled DSP microphone kit)

    Who should use it?

    Developers and product managers looking to prototype an Alexa-enabled product.

    How much is it?

    FREE! You can test and develop to your hearts content. If you want to put it into your product, let's talk.
