Version 2.1 is available.

It is now totally hands free. It can be run in the background while other android apps are running in the foreground.

Use OK Google .... then Open Listener  to start H@l
When H@l is  listening ... you can use "Stop Listening" to tell it to not try to interpret commands.
The "Stop Listening" command can be user customized.

You can also have H@l stop listening at a specified time after the last successful command.

To get H@l's attention ... just say  "OK Vera".  This phrase can also be customized by the user.

To return to  standard OK google recognition ... say "Goodbye"  ... you can always start commanding Vera again with "OK Goole"  then "Open Listener".


The speech recognition configuration files are now visible, and can be customized, so people can attempt to add new phrases to activate Vera Device commands.

Full Open Mike Support will require a license after 30 days.

Released version 2.2
   Bug fixes only ... fixed some crashes some folks had when they set the idle interval to a empty string.
   Fixed a bug I started seeing that caused open mike to stop listening.

For those that wish to try to Localize H@l to a different language let me know. We can start a thread for how to get started.
You can try it for a few commands like turning on lights and/or running scenes. Then expand upon it for devices of interest.
