I’m coming back to SmartThings after a few years and I have to say I’m impressed with the improvements in the platform and the app.
I’m currently testing the Smart Things Home Monitor. I have it working so that any intrusion lights up Philips Hue lights and a voice command plays on my Sonos Speaker.

ASSISTANT RELAY V3

@Ryan780 would probably know what the best options are these days on SmartThings for using Google Home devices as TTS devices.

Now that ST is removing the Groovy IDE, I have no idea. All of the integrations for GAR are based on either WebCoRE or Groovy drivers. Two things I wouldn’t bother investing the time in if you’re a new user.
