You install HAL from the Google Play store.
Search for HAL and Vera

Voice recognition is in English only now.
It was designed to be localized to other languages for the both the menus and the command grammar. The latter requires that Google voice recognition can recognize your commands in your local language. My next release will make it easy for people to start to localize the grammar for testing purposes.

Tested HAL with russian language.

1) One time App exit with error. Sent log by Google Service.
2) If I wrote russian phrase in "Google Translation" and english in ''What I Said" all is WORK!
3) If I said similar phrare, for example - "выключить", not "выключи" it's not understand my command :( Fuzzy Match Limit not work in my case.
4) Welcome message not work in russian. Only english letters.
5) I wrote Gesture at Request tab (which added before at Gestures tab) and if it not Recognized - not open Result page (voice/gesture/error clicked)

I have just installed HAL. What a great program !!! 2 questions. Actually, 3 questions. I have watched your you tube video, which really helped getting me started, but it did not answer these question.

I have temperature sensors, and would like to know the temperature. One is calles Temp master bedroom. I tried temp master bedroom, temperature master bedroom, status temp master bedroom... nothing. So i am doing something wrong.

Second question, can i (and if how) run scenes ?

Third one... how can i assign a voice command to a device, lets say my device has a long name, and i just want to call it 'test' to turn on/off ?

1) Temp Master bedroom status
2) Scene Name   
     or
    Run Scene Name
3) Enter  it in the dictionary ... some phrase to some command

Ok 1 + 2 working. Although if i say just the scene name, the phrase is recognised correctly, but there is no command associated, but it works if i say run followed by the scene name, so thats fine. Now, I am struggling a little with the dictionary. When I try to get my awning to come in or out, google does not understand me (it does not seem to have that word or be capable to capture that word), so I am trying to use the word shade instead. The device is called 'awning out'. So I have put awning out in google translation, shade out in what I said ( I have tried the other way round too but that did not work either). I then go back to the voice commands, and the command shade out is captured correctly, but there is no recognised (associated) command.

in general you could say the phrase that you want to have recognized and look at the result page what the HAL comes up with as recognized command and put that in the dictionary on the "Google Translation" side and put the english command on the "What I Said" side. (for example: "light kitchen on"
for the temperature i have in dutch at the "Google Translation" side  : buitentemperatuur  and on the "What I Said" side i have : "backdoor temp status" without the "" ofcourse. so when i say : "wat is de buitentemperatuur" the HAL responds with : "backdoor temp is XX degrees"
now all we need is something that exchanges the "backdoor temp is XX degrees" with dutch language :-)

This is basically what i did, but i forgot the 'on', i thought i did not need it but i think i do. The device 'awning out' is extending the awning. But i probably need to tell it 'on', otherwise it'll recognise the device but does not know what to do with it. As the device is called awning out i thought the 'out' is like the on command, but this is not the case !
I guess when i try that later it will solve the problem !
