This is our current progress on integrating natively Google Home. The first day we will have the beta version we will post it here and after that we will gather all your feedback and discuss any improvements that you guys can think of.
As soon as I’ll have the links for the firmware I will post it here so you guys can test it. We will gather feedback afterwards and improve the implementation if needed. Thanks for the feedback everybody.
Great, I was really waiting for this! In fact I was allready looking for another controller. Very glad I can stay with Vera now.
What will be the timeframe for the availability of this beta? Or is it a plug-in?

The beta will be scheduled at the end of our current sprint. This would be around mid September if we include also a week of stabilisation.
A firmware upgrade will be necessary to have this available.
Could you please be more specific? What are you referring to?[/quote]
A nice added feature would be the ability for us to programatically send text to speech broadcasts from the Vera to our Google Homes. For instance, a “Good Morning” or “Front Door Open” announcement.[/quote]
or “you have mail” when the postman drops a letter which triggers a zwave door lock sensor sensative strip for instance !
would be really cool
the demo does not show any support for device UPNP actions. maybe UPNP actions can have a friendly text name that google home would recognize and use it to trigger the exec of a particular device UPNP action ( hopefully with parameters taken out of the user’s voice instructions )
