Reddit user droidkc has shown off his home automation setup controlled entirely by voice commands. The setup can control home lights on a dimmer, the TV, and even XBMC from his phone.
Here’s a list of what he used to create this setup:
- AutoVoice (Tasker plugin)
- Yatse (to control XBMC)
- VeraLite (Home automation controller, $179)
The comments over on Reddit have more information on how he accomplished this. If you’re comfortable creating Tasker profiles and don’t mind searching through some home automation forums, you should be able to set up something similar on the cheap.
