An example of using voice control
With Candle you can speak freely
100% local voice control
Your voice and your behavioural patterns never leave your home.

All the popular features
Set timers and reminders, toggle devices and ask for their values.
Fast machine learning
Not sending your voice to the cloud and back means it's fast.
Set timers, reminders and alarms
Expand voice control to every room
Why you should care about privacy friendly voice control.
Controlling your home with your voice is a wonderful thing. Having companies listen in is not.
Your voice is being fingerprinted
Your voice is as unique as your fingerprint. Every time you speak near a cloud connected microphone, you could be sharing your presence.
Do the friends, family and other people who visit your home consent to having their voice recorded and fingerprinted?
Your voice paints a picture
Cloud-based voice control systems can learn more from your voice than you may realise. Algorithms will try to infer your mood, health, how your relationship is doing, and much more.

2. Install the Voco add-on
Generate an authorization token
Go to settings -> addons. Click on the (+) button, and install the Voco addon. Wait a minute to let it download and install, because it's pretty big.
Go to settings > developer > create local authorization
Click on "allow", then copy the token, which is a long line of random letters.
Enter the authorization code in Voco
Open the Voco page from the menu (you may have to refresh the page to see it), paste in the token, and click 'save'.
You can now control all your devices using your voice.
