openLuup / Re: http get request and URL encoding: spaces to + and back?
« Last post by jswim788 on Today at 01:00:59 am »
The OpenLuup layer should not need to deal with this.  The underlying http server (listening on port  3480) will deal with this ... as encoding is part of the http spec.
Doesn't openLuup itself listen to port 3480?  Maybe it has some other helper under the hood?

I bought several at security equipment supply (SES). They work but I am trying to find documentation on the central scene for Vera. I want to set up a double tap to be "all off". Any assistance would be appreciated!

P.S. they don't dim the cheap Home Depot commercial electric brand 4 for $29 led conversion can retrofit trims. They work to dim the 6 pack Lowe's cheap house brand, though only at about 40-100% and in only 5 steps. any other suggestions of can retrofit lamps that worked with linear dimmers?

That was it! Now it is working. Thanks!
Google's roadmap is to be able to use Google Assistant on mobile without a Google Home device.
Right now when I am in my Office if I say
    OK google  XXX
The Google Home or the Phone will respond ... not both ... the first to react handles the request.
This is a feature of Google Assistant. You should be able to put many Google Assistant devices in your house without the concern of two devices reacting to the same command.
(They will react to the same command if they are linked to different Google Accounts).

My short term workaround to their plan is to release a Vera Concierge android app ... that you can talk to the same way you do the Google Home.
You might have to start it with
    OK google start Vera Concierge

instead of
    OK google talk to Vera Concierge
But you can'[t ask it if the Garage door is open  or what the Thermostat settings are set to  or if the Alarm is armed.

With Vera Concierge you DO have to start with
OK Google Talk to Vera Concierge
But then everything you ask is simple.
And because it supports more device types ... you do not have to create scenes to run things and use Turn on X and Turn Off X  when X is not a switch.

I am open to changing the activation name (Vera Concierge) but I do have to live with Google standards.

And if you have a Google Home(s) or even a Google Cast(s) device  you can use them with Vera Alerts for TTS (Text to Speech) announcements (Latest Vera Alerts release).
Anyway you can get around the awkward way needed to call the command?

With Ha Bridge we just say things like... "Alexa, turn on kitchen lights" simple for anyone to use.

The way Google home works to get vera to work is not user friendly at all. Not sure you can work around it but figured I would ask if you think it is possible

I'm curious, is the plan to be able to use Concierge on mobile to link Vera and communicate with Google Assistant without actually having a Google Home? I'm wondering how much power they'll put into the Assistant without requiring a Home purchase.

Google Home/Google Assistant - Vera Concierge / Re: Price?

I down't say please :)
Well google Tech Support got back to me:

Unfortunately, Actions on Google is only available on the Google Home at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

So for the time being Google Assistant will not support Vera Concierge on a mobile device. But it is on their roadmap.

I have plans to release a Android App that will do this until Google steps up.
