Example, say Hey Snips, turn on the lights! or Hey Snips, what's the status of the Garden lights?

  • 'Hey Snips' is the hotword (or wakeword).
  • 'turn on the lights!' is a command.
  • and 'what's the status of the Garden lights?' is a query.

For the best result, use a short delay (~1s) between the hotword and Command/Query

Example: 'Hey Snips (~1s) lights on!
