I have a question and maybe proposal for OpenHAB Cloud Connector. Currently it can manage with lights, switches, thermostat, but according to documentation (https://www.openhab.org/docs/ecosystem/google-assistant/) it cannot play with sensors.
It will be reasonable to add new tag
sensor to manage dozens of sensors visible in our OpenHAB installations (humidity, temperature, voltage, light, pressure, etc.)
Number GF_FamilyRoom_Outdoor_Humidity_Sensor "Outdoor humidity [%.1f%%]" <humidity> (gSensorTemperature, gPersistenceSensor) ["Sensor"] Number GF_FamilyRoom_Pressure_Sensor "Outdoor pressure [%.1fhPa]" <pressure> (gSensorTemperature, gPersistenceSensor) ["Sensor"]
It would be very generic and just read value. So conversation may be as follows:
- OK Google, what is the <label>? - Current value of <label> is now <value>.
In more sophisticated implementation the second argument would be unit, i.e. Celsius, Volt, Lumen, Percent, Pascal, etc. Just read in conversation.
Is this possible now (I cannot find it) or can it be implemented as a valuable openhab enhancement?
