The (second) first wireless rabbit is back
Fully functional with its new Home-Assistant powered heart.
Follow the istructions on this page to set up a new Nabaztag/tag serverless firmware:
Just remember that you can use your Raspberry Pi as host for this firmware files (just create a folder named “www” in the config folder and put the “vl” directory right there).
After installing this new firmware, it will be possible to control the rabbit using the Home Assistant user interface:
or you can just make your own automations to control LEDs, ears and voice messages.
Here is my “Nabaztag Package”:
If you don’t know how to use a package have a look here: https://home-assistant.io/docs/configuration/packages/ or just create a directory named “packages” inside the “config” folder, put the file there and add this line to the configuration.yaml file:
homeassistant: packages: !include_dir_named packages
Inside my Nabaztag Package I used these sensors:
- Weather Sensor - Dark Sky Sensor (https://home-assistant.io/components/sensor.darksky/)
- Stocks Sensor - Bitcoin (https://home-assistant.io/components/sensor.bitcoin/)
- Traffic Sensor - Google Maps Travel Time (https://home-assistant.io/components/sensor.google_travel_time/)
- Pollution Sensor - AirVisual (https://home-assistant.io/components/sensor.airvisual/)
The rabbit will show the informations using the frontal LEDs and the body language (moving the ears). You can set a schedule to show the infos, wake and set it to sleep at the time of the day you want.
Beside keeping his own Nabaztag personality, marking the hours and chit-chatting with funny sentences during the day, you can use the Google TTS service to make it talk.
The Nabaztag can also play webradios, just edit the list of urls inside the file.
It’s possible to download the original Nabaztag voices available in 10 languages (br, de, en, es, fr, it, ja, uk, us) at this page: http://share.nekmo.com/python-nabaztag/mp3/zip/.
The Google TTS obviously works with many other languages.
