Dual purpose home security / voice activated companion

Services such as Google Home, Alexa, etc are great, but when you're at home, you're not always in a room with a dedicated device, and you don't always have your phone next to you. The idea beyond this project is to produce a simple robot, using a three wheel stair scaling axis that will follow its owner around the house, interacting via voice control. Then, when the owner is not at home, the robot will patrol the house, acting as a security bot, looking for unanticipated sound & motion, and sending alerts when it is detected. When power runs low, the robot will return automatically to an inductive charging pad to top up its batteries.
