loxone and Google home integration (Tasker / autovoice)

“shortcuts” feature added to the Google home app allows cleaner voice commands to miniserver

required: google home, an android device to run tasker, autovoice and the google home app. im using a old nexus 5 that will live in the media cabinet – you could install on personal phone but if its not in the house it wont work


– follow this:

– in autovoice, under devices, add your android device and link google account

– link the autovoice assistant in the google home app (devices, google home, settings, more, assistant apps)

– create the shortcut – in the above example the full voice command is “tell autovoice to toggle the gate” which has been reduced to “open the gate” and “close the gate”

    Fellow Kiwi home automation enthusiast here. I'm currently looking into the most streamlined way to incorporate Google Home with custom widgets around my house (ESP8266 devices, etc). A lot of implementations seem to use the IFTTT service but latency and reliability appear to be concerns. Autovoice seems like not a bad alternative although I'm only just getting my head around how it works. Do you have any thoughts on your implementation vs. IFTTT? I noticed some latency in your system but it appears to be mostly Google Home taking time to recognise the command? Any other advice for someone just getting started? Cheers.
