[quote=“RichardTSchaefer, post:11, topic:196621”]I believe you already have the ability to play/pause/stop/mute via voice control.
Do you want this as part of a scene/pleg action ?[/quote]
Regarding Vera sending the TTS to Google Home or ChromeCast devices via Concierge. How do we incorporate that in to Vera scenes or Pleg actions?
As there isn’t actually anything in Vera currently you can select for Concierge.
Regarding the transport controls over ChromeCast devices. I will have to test voice control with the GH Mini and the Chromecast Video device I have in the living room, to see what’s possible. I’ve only had the Chromecast a few days.
But its always nice to have some extra control either in Vera or the Imperihome app of devices around the house.
For example with the Harmony Hubs via the Harmony plug-in for Vera, I can add HTTP requests in to the Imperihome app to create buttons to control the volume on my daughters TV upstairs.
By default Imperihome only supports Harmony Activities. It doesn’t have any support for adding Harmony devices or commands / buttons off those devices. But by using a HTTP request I can add these extra buttons.
I thought maybe being able to do something similar with the Chromcast device for transport controls might be handy.
And also having them in Vera scenes or Pleg actions maybe to send a video or audio to a chrome cast / GH devices when a certain scene or Pleg actions runs or an IP camera stream if possible, for when the doorbell goes.
Or have your Home scene run a Harmony activity to switch to the ChromeCast and start auto playing your favourite music.
I don’t really have anything specific in mind, I was just wondering what we might be able to do with Vera and Chromecast / GH devices in general? Which currently doesn’t look to be a lot.
