Continuous listening for commands with pocketsphinx?

Hi guys,

I know that conversation mode is currently only activated with chrome web browser to communicate to HA, but is there any way to have it so it’s actively listening all the time so I can always issue verbal commands? There of course need to be a mic wired to the server running HA for this to work.

Ideally, you wouldn’t use a online speech recognition engine. You could use something like pocketsphinx (which does have a continuous mode) to do the speech recognition locally.

Then allow even more granular control by specify a phrase or hotword in the “trigger” of a automation instead of using pre-formatted command structure as it currently is.
