ivee Sleek, the First Wi-Fi Voice-Activated Assistant for the Home, Is Ready to Come to Life and Connect to the Internet of Things; Find Her at Staples Nationwide

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - December 04, 2013) - Interactive Voice, a pioneer in voice-controlled electronics, is excited to announce that its newest Internet-connected device, ivee Sleek, is now available for retail purchase, shipping to Staples nationwide this month.

Unveiled at the 2013 International CES in Las Vegas, ivee Sleek is the first Wi-Fi voice-activated assistant for the home that answers questions, obeys commands and controls other Internet-connected devices. Via the exclusive "my ivee" portal, users can easily connect ivee to their favorite Wi-Fi devices and view them through their computer, tablet or smartphone.

With more and more devices entering the steadily growing connected home market, which houses the potential to hit a global market value of $10 billion by 2014, according to ABI Research, ivee Sleek's hit the ground running with an innovative and untapped niche. ivee offers users the ability to create a true connected home, one in which multiple devices run synchronously, but she doesn't stop there. ivee Sleek expands upon the beginnings of voice recognition and personal assistant technology experienced through mobile phones and takes it to unprecedented level to create an artificial intelligence system that allows users to control their connected homes through simply the use of their voices.

At launch, ivee Sleek will understand and answer questions within 33 categories ranging from time and weather to stock prices, radio settings and more. Just say "hello ivee," and ivee Sleek will prompt you for a command. As soon as you start talking, ivee begins turning your words into actions. And, because her technology is cloud-based, she will continuously grow, becoming smarter and more personalized to both her owner and her surroundings.

ivee Sleek currently works with platform solutions from iControl Networks, through which she has the ability to control other internet-connected devices, such as Wi-Fi thermostats, locks, smart plugs, security cameras and more. Come January, ivee Sleek will become integrated with Staples Connect. ivee is also currently working on partnerships that will allow her to control even more devices on her own.
