Hi, quick question regarding this. I hit major issues with my zwave network when I had just one sonos device or DNLA device connected via ST.
So I am now offloading all this work from the ST hub and letting one of my servers run VoxCommando.
So what I have created so far is a device handler that you just need to specify the IP of the VoxCommando and the device handler has an announce(“message here”, volumelevel) function which can be utilised from Rule Machines expert features.
When the delaybetween function is fixed it will then support sonos groups to notify through all players etc…
So I don’t control in any way the sonos’s from ST just use it for notifications. VoxCommando then does the play text and resume and this resumes at exactly the point the song was paused for the notification.
I also now use a voice from CereProc which is excellent for us non US users as we have regionalisation of voices via this method. For all you Lancashire bods like me Cereprox are selling their Claire From Lancashire voice for only £10. There’s nowt like a local accent for your house
So my question is it’s very rough and is at the moment hardcoded for my environment. This might be a very specific use case and I could Generalise it for everyone, but before I potentially waste my time I was wondering if there is any demand for this to be publicly released?
