Title: TTS from Vera ?
Post by: yannicks on July 30, 2017, 03:54:46 pm
Hello,
I have configured the Java app on a Rpi2.
I have tested TTS on Chromecast devices and it is working well.

Now it would be great if I could call a TTS request from my Vera controller to Vera Concierge server. Do you know if it is possible to call such HTTP request from Vera ?

Thanks!

The Vera Alerts plugin will do TTS message to your Google Home and/or your Google Cast devices. It uses the voice from Google translations. it does require you to have a local Concierge Server.

Could you give some details on how setup this ?
I don't know Vera Alerts. I have installed the plugin, added a profile for Vera-Concierge but I don't know how to setup TTS.

Thanks again.

You can test this from the "Local Concierge Server" first ... to make sure everything is setup properly.
From there you can see the Google Home and Google cast devices that are available, as well as the name you created for them.
Once that is setup ... your Vera Alert profile for Vera Concierge should work.

From Vera Concierge all is running fine: I can launch TTS on my Google Home.

On my Vera Alerts device, that is what I did: on "Profiles" tab, I have added a "Vera-Concierge" profile with device name being the name of my Google Home.

Then I tried to run the following command (478 is the ID of my Vera Alerts device):
luup.call_action("urn:richardgreen:serviceId:VeraAlert1", "SendAlert", {Message = "Message test", Recipients = "Vera-Concierge"}, 478)

But nothing happens. Am I missed something ?

Thanks again !

Did you specify a Google Home or Google Cast name in the Profile ?

I have tested again today and it works.
No change, strange...
But now it is OK, great feature!

Thanks Richard.
