The Essential Home Smart Assistant is powered by AmbientOS, an operating system that runs AI locally vs in the cloud like Siri or Google Assistant, meaning your every word isn’t sent across the web to be understood; a high priority for the privacy-oriented. This little helper is still cloud connected though, and is designed to automatically find and connect to the other smart devices in your home: lamps, speakers, sensors, control units – you name it. It’s also supposed to learn from your routines in order to do things like notify you when you need to leave for an appointment or whether or not you left your air conditioner running during a long trip. The sexy circular display presents relevant data and acts as a physical interface, with a clean, modern UI.
