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?

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.

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 )

Excelent news! I just got a Google Home today as I read about the ha-bridge - only to discover it’s not working anymore. That kind of sucks.
