Before i go any further i want to say that i have decent programming experience and not afraid of writing some code if i have to, to implement this. At the same time i don’t need this to become a full time job)))
I have this idea where i would place multiple microphones, one in each room and depending on which mic picks up the voice command, a different action would occur. (assume we are using ST hub). Also each room would have a speaker and it would be more of a conversation.
For instance i say “lights” and only lights in the room where i’m standing turn on.
I was curious if anyone tried something similar and have the following questions:
- Would u use any existing home automation software that would be compatible with SmartThings? if so which one?
- I’m trying to go wireless, any particular mic+speaker set in mind? I think bluetooth may not work for this application.
- Is it possible to integrate this way with Siri Cortana or other ready solutions or may be use some APIs? if so any pointers would be appreciated.
