I’m building a big new smart home (OP on HA forums for context). A few of you commented over there I’m pretty sure. I know you did, @synesthesiam - thank you!. But I have a very specific set of questions for everyone here.
First, check out that post. Then I would love any feedback on my specific questions here:
- Would in-ceiling or in-wall be a better place for the 36 satellites? Ceiling is harder to access (not too worried about this) but I’m guessing that’s the best location for picking up voice around the room.
- What is the best mic+Pi combo available? ReSpeaker 6-Mic Circular Array + Raspberry Pi as I suspect or something else?
- Anyone have any thoughts on effective and attractive mounting with an acoustic mesh? I’m imagining hacking together some combination of an acoustic mesh over a large+round in-ceiling housing that could hold the Pi+Mic.
I just want to properly scope this part of the project out so I can get the right information to the low voltage team.
