Warning: Controlling Homey via voice commands is experimental and only available on Homey Early 2016 and Early 2018.
You can control Homey with voice commands, to easily control devices or retrieve information. Basic control with voice commands is really easy.
1. Turn on the microphones
Open the Homey app and tap on More(...) and go to Settings. In settings tap on Experiments and enable the microphones in Homey
2. Talk to Homey
To let Homey know you're talking to it, you must trigger Homey by saying 'OK Homey' to it. When Homey heard the trigger, its LED ring will start pulsing orange.
3. Give your command
Now, you can give your desired command or question. Homey understands a lot of commands, ranging from controlling devices ('lower the temperature', 'turn off all lights in the living room') to questions for information ('what's the time?'). You can find an overview of voice commands in this article.
4. Wait for analysis
After your command, wait for Homey to analyze your command. You will see a white loading animation indicating Homey is processing your voice command.
5. Execute command
Homey will execute your command within seconds. Depending on the command, you will be given feedback, spoken information, or controlled devices.
