Setup

Last updated 5 months ago

Now that Sam is set up and connected to your Raspberry Pi, we can install the Snips Platform on it.

The Snips Platform is what runs your assistant. Listening to your voice from a microphone, it transcribes what you say into text, extracts the meaning of it, and performs an action accordingly. You can read more about this in the Snips Platform Documentation.

Start the installer using sam init:

sam init
Installing Snips Platform components. This may take a few minutes...
Successfully installed Snips Platform components

This will take a few minutes, after which the device will reboot. Once ready, you can again check the status of your device. You should see the Status field updated accordingly, as well as a list of newly installed components:

Please note that some service status may be different from the example below. Most of them will become active later in the installation process, as soon as an assistant will be installed.
