I want to control Home Assistant via voice commands. I’m mainly interested in the controls of the Sonos speakers, playing good night stories for the kids, adjusting the heating or getting some information like the weather. The important thing is that I want to do without any cloud services. I had dealt with snips a while ago, but had also read about Ada. I’m mainly interested in which hardware I can realize this with. Since I use a Raspberry PI as host system, I thought about this first.
But with this solution I could only send voice commands in the room where the PI is located, i.e. the living room. So rather unsuitable if an audio book is for the kids is required.
In my wishful thinking I send my voice commands via my Smartwatch (K.I.T.T. says hello :-)), but I don’t think something like that works yet, do I?
I am thinking more of additional hardware like amazon Echo Dot / Echo Show or Google Home / Nest. But I don’t know what is possible with it. Has anyone of you already configured such a setup and can recommend it to others?
If you can recommend other devices, always welcome. If you still have installation instructions and would like to send them to me - would be great.
I would be very pleased about feedback.
