Just started with Home assistant and already amazed with how advanced things are. Was away from electronics hobby for a few years and was still in the arduino / PIC dark ages.
I was wondering how to setup a homemade alexa without having the cloud interaction. Rhasspy seems to be a winner. Thanks to all the good work made by @synesthesian.
In my case my home assistant is one virtual apliance install in one VM without access to hardware. Also i don’t find pratical having to speak near the server. So the ESP32 seems a good idea for having a satelite solution to pass the voice commands to Rhasspy from more that one place.
Then i stumble with this video from Atomic14 in youtube. Not sure i can post it here. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re-dSV_a0tM )
This is half the work done, already has the wake up voice detection and passing the wav to a destination. Left a comment for Atomic14 to have a look into this forum. Hope this is helpfull for everyone following this topic.
I feel grateful for getting in touch with people that have the same hobbys as i have.
Hope i’m not building castles in the air and this is all doable.
I just received my ESP32 dev kit + INMP441and setting up the Visual code install.
Count me in for any testing/developing on this branch of the project. Not a pro programmer, but will do my best.
