am in a search to find the best approach at controlling things like lights, TVs gaming consoles, and cameras using Voice Commands. Ive been looking at Alexa and Google Nest, but there’s a lot of unknowns. most of my home theater stuff is controlled through Logitech Hub, though it doesn’t do voice commands.
Recently Smart Things had an upgrade. I say recently because I just recently became aware of the upgrade. I use my Phone, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, as a sort of remote to control Logitech Hub, Lutron for my lights, Magic Home for LEDs, and Nest for my cameras. I’d MUCH rather be able to control all of it through Smart Things, but the ultimate goal is controlling everything with Voice Commands (preferable customizable voice commands). Is Smart things capable of doing this? I can’t find any features for voice commands in the app… infact, the apps widget options for home-screen is limited to scenes. Its very frustrating. I have to go into the app, navigate to the device, and crontol properties. More steps than its worth. Lutron allow intensity options in it home screen widge to control the lights. Also, all our TVs are newer Samsung TVs with smart features that work with Smart Things, as well as a new washer that also works with Smart things. Seems like a lot of potention that partions per device. Or am I missing something. Are there features that Im over looking?
- Can art Things be programed to yaled voice commands?
- What’s the best Hub for controlling Onkyo, Samsung products, Logitech Hub, Lutron Lights, and others?
- Is there a way to add device shortcuts to the Samsung homescreen using Smart Things on Galaxy Note tabs and phones, not scenes scenes?
