Just listened to the State of the Open Home presentation, and was struck by Paulus’ idea of using VoIP phones as Rhasspy satellites.
I can see the advantages he mentioned (no wake word, good audio quality because mouth is close to microphone).
But it strikes me as impractical to have multiple VoIP handsets around the house for giving voice commands. I no longer have a house landline phone (just a mobile); and if I did it would mean adding a PABX to connect multiple satellites.
More important. if I have to go to the VoIP phone i might as well get up and go tap buttons on a tablet; or open my phone, start the app to tap a button. Nowhere near as convenient as just speaking a command from wherever I happen to be.
