So I have this old (circa 1980s) replica of a really old cathedral radio. It looks a lot like this:
only mine is in a lot worse shape with a lighter finish (for now, I plan on refinishing it). I picked it up for next to nothing at a Goodwill about a year ago.
Anyway, my plan is to put a Raspberry Pi with a Google AIY Voice kit inside and use it for some voice control of the house, at least in the living room. The speaker isn’t half bad so I’ll probably do some music from it as well. I was able to pick up a RPi 3 + Google AIY Voice kit from Micro Center (the only one in my state is not close) for a good price and they were in stock.
I searched the forum and I’ve not seen anyone posting about Google AIY with openHAB. My own looking shows that I should be able to set up MQTT messages in response to custom commands and there probably is nothing stopping me from using the REST API directly.
I plan on writing up a tutorial, or at least project notes for what I’m doing and post them here.
But I wanted to know if anyone has played with or experimented with using it with openHAB and get some lessons learned if so.
