New to Core - Help with "Home Status" piston with speech synthesizer

Hi all,

New to core, phenomenal application!

I am trying to set up a CoRE app to basically respond to google voice command “Home Status” at night. I’ve created the virtual button and have my speech synthesizer set up already using big talker. I am getting sort of confused at variables.

Basically I want it to say which locks are unlocked and the current “mode” of my house (home, away, night) using smartthings modes and also if my garage is open or closed. As well as maybe presence of people.

I am not sure how to get it to speak variables in CoRE of the devices?

Many Thanks!
