As announced previously in the LANNouncer Announcement Thread, LANNouncer is a combination Device Handler, SmartApp and Android app bringing text-to-speech to SmartThings through Android devices.
A few months ago I added GCM (Google Messaging) support, allowing IFTTT to interact with LANNouncer directly also.
This month I’ve added:
- Custom audio files - select your own sounds
- Stop command - because you may only want that sound until it is acknowledged via Aeon Remote (e.g.)
- WAN support - because GCM is, it turns out, often slow and unreliable. And you might not want Google knowing everything about you
There are some other goodies and stability fixes also.
