Here’s a thought – now this might be available – but I can’t find it..
Most of us have phones – some Android, some Apple, few Microsoft. So sticking with Android for now – the latest Android phones (I have the HTC One M8 with Android 6.0 which is marvellous) handle speech recognition well. “Remind me to turn the cooker off in 5 minutes”. Mind you it never did actually remind me but never mind.
So all of that works.. but what would be REALLY NICE – if the same exact thing could recognise “NODERED”..
So how about “NODERED turn kitchen light on”.
ALL that is needed is for that entire sentence – but only sentences that begin with NODERED – to end up being sent by whatever – MQTT maybe – to the Node-Red installation – from there the most trivial of line parsers could figure out what you were trying to achieve – and do it for you.
