My dream here is for a way to listen to many audio streams that are constantly on and perpetually listening throughout the house. I’d like to issue a voice directive to the house from wherever I am, have it acknowledge my command, and execute it via rules.
I’ve searched through the community and documentation but to no avail. I’ve found on the audio & voice page:
openHAB has a very modular architecture that enables many different use cases. At its core, there is the notion of an audio stream. Audio streams are provided by audio sources and consumed by audio sinks.
Which is basically what I’m looking for, but the implementation seems to be lacking currently. On the Multimedia page, I found:
Although there are already interfaces defined in openHAB for speech-to-text, up to now there is no add-on available for this functionality. So the only choice that is available right now is to use the Android voice recognition feature that is built into the openHAB Android app.
I don’t really see much else of it in the community forum besides how to implement a listener via the Android app.
I’m a software developer with 10+ years of experience and would love to contribute to this if it’s something we’re exploring, but do we have any knowledge of where we are with this concept?
Thank you all for this exceptional community and software; we have loved building our smart home over the past year with it!
