Google Home Profile to play sounds via Vera Alerts
« on: December 17, 2017, 02:35:55 am »
I have both Vera Alerts and Vera Concierge. I currently use Sonos to play sounds for alerts.  For example when my door bell goes off:

                luup.call_action(SONOS_SID , "Alert",{URI="x-file-cifs://192.168.1.XXX/Public/Vera/Sounds/DingDong.mp3", Duration=5, Volume=EVENT_VOLUME}, SONOS_DEVICE_NO1)

I can get VearAlerts to to Text To Speech for Door Bell:

             local VERA_ALERTS = XX
                  luup.call_action("urn:richardgreen:serviceId:VeraAlert1", "SendAlert", {Message = "Front door Visitor", Recipients = "GH_Kitchen"}, VERA_ALERTS)


But would love to send sound files/urls to Google Home Speakers to play sounds.  I am looking at investing more speakers for GH then Sonos.   $29 Google Home Min vs $300 Sonos.



Any ideas if supported and how to play sounds on Google Home via the Vera Concierge and or Vera Alerts?

Richard, any chance an Amazon Echo could do a sound or speech notification from a motion sensor via Vera Alerts?

I will look into it ... I probably need to create a skill for that.

I would pay for that skill...
Long Live UI5!  (OK finally made the switch to UI7 in January 2018, and am pretty happy....)

Looking to do some Christmas shopping. Should I buy one Sonos or 5 Google Min speakers?  I would pay for the feature to use Google Home speakers then Sonos.  Any luck on the new option/skill?
