Hey Vector... I have a question

You must say "I have a questi­­on­­" before asking any question to Vector, then wait for Vector to say "­Rea­dy" before contin­­uing:

User Regist­ration

1. Say “Hey Vector”
2. Wait for the ding sound and his Back Light to turn blue
3. Say your name (“My name is Ash”)

Vector will confirm he understood by showing a yellow light and pronounce your name.
If Vector thinks he recognizes you, he will ask, “Have we met before ?”

- If you answer no, he continues scanning and enrolling your face
- If you answer yes, he says, “I already know a <na­­me­>.”

Software updates

Software updates for Vector are fully automated. When on Wi-Fi, the robot checks for updates every hour and applies updates once per day between 1am and 5am.

You can check what version of software Vector is on by opening the Vector Robot app, then tapping the Settings icon on the top right, and clicking "­­Up­d­a­te­­s".
