Well… released on Google Play and on the website. SmartThings hasn’t approved the device handler or SmartApp yet.
- Do you want an easy way to announce events - with speech or with chimes and alarms?
- Do you want to have such announcements handy while you’re not home - e.g. a chime when the front door opens on your cell phone?
- Does buying a Sonos system or dedicating a computer to VLC Thing seem like overkill to get sounds out of SmartThings?
Then perhaps LANnouncer (formerly LANdroid) is the solution. LANnouncer enables SmartThings to talk on Android devices running Lollipop or higher, via LAN (local network) or via SMS.
See the LANnouncer web page for more information and to download the groovy driver (for now, until SmartThings approves the publish), plus LANnouncer on the Google Play entry for the Android service, or this post of the running testing over the last week.
Update 28 March 2016: New version - fixes some WAN access bugs.
17 July 2016: New release on the Play store, new SmartThings Device Handler, and new web page with far better organization.
