HAB Speaker (dialog processing on the browser)


HAB Speaker is a project designed to facilitate the use of the openHAB dialog processing capabilities.

Through a WebSocket connection this web interface registers a sink and source in your openHAB instance that can be used like any other ones.

  • Enable mp3 support for the sink (converted on the server to wav).
  • Support keyword spotting on the server.
  • Support keyword spotting on the client.
  • Add stereo support to the sink.
  • Improve the readme and update the gif image.
  • Create own icons (current icons are copied from habot).
  • Improve the settings page design.
  • Improve the authentication mechanism (when option ‘secure’ is enabled).

Feel welcome to open a PR with whatever fixes or improvements, and to report any issue.
I not used to do design and frontend development so any help to improve that part will be appreciated.

Interesting, thanks !

I plan to do a client (not a web one, but still) with this kind of audio capability.
I want to provide intercom capability over SIP to my raspberrys all over the house), and that kind of speaker functionnality for openHAB is totally on my todo list.

I will monitor this and maybe some day steal some code :sweat_smile:

I’ll probably also make a native client for this once I finished with the web. I actually discovered the SIP widget today, really cool. Have to read more about that protocol, seems interesting.
