Alias is a teachable “parasite” by Bjorn Karmann, that is designed to give users more control over their smart assistants, both when it comes to customisation and privacy. Through a simple app the user can train Alias to react on a custom wake-word/sound, and once trained, Alias can take control over your home assistant by activating it for you.
In this instructions, we will walk you through the main steps to complete your own Alias and start training a new wake-up-word for your smart device.
The form of Alias is quite fun and informal. It takes the humour a notch upwards and increases privacy while doing all of this. It is open source and you make your own following the steps here.
