I am still very much a beginner but have managed to set up HA, so that it now turns a Ikea bulb (connected via Zigbee2MQTT) on when the sun goes down.
I also have another Ikea bulb that automatically comes on at 6pm.
I am running HA on a Raspberry Pi3, with a USB speaker plugged into it.
My next project is to try and have HA announce when the bulbs are turned on - for example, it will say “Bedroom Light On”, when said bulb turns on.
Via these pages:
I have updated my yaml configuration, so it shows the following:
# Configure a default setup of Home Assistant (frontend, api, etc)
- platform: mpd
- platform: google_translate
- platform: tts
What I have, now, is a grey box on my Overview that I can type a phrase in and it will play that phrase back over the speaker.
I am sort of getting there but what do I do now to get HA to announce when each of the bulbs turns on?
I need two messages:
Bedroom light on
Kitchen light on
