H@l Home @utomation Language


Inspired by the HAL-9000 in the movie 2001: a space Odyssey and Google Voice Search, you can control your house, where the requests would be similar to the following:

Please turn on the Office Light Vera
Hal open the Garage Door Please
Computer run All Lights Off Thanks
Status of the House Alarm please




This application requires the following:

A Vera Home Automation a Controller from MiCasa Verde (See http://getvera.com ). It works on all platforms running UI4, thru UI7.

Configure your Vera Login credentials, name your Vera's and you are ready to go ... There are a few other settings to help customize your experience.



In addition to talking you your House, you can assign touch gestures to commands. This is useful in noisy environments.

Many voice recognition applications have problems do to the quality of the recognized speech.
H@l improves reliability using 3 techniques:

Semantic Rules - Words in the proper order for a meaningful interpretation.
Fuzzy Logic - Matches words spelled or pronounced similarly.
Translation Dictionary - To Translate many of the words Google thinks you said into things meaningful for your Home Automation.



The application has support for Switches, Dimmers, Temperature, Humidity, Light, Security Sensors, Alarm Partitions, Locks, Thermostats, Virtual Switches, Multi-Switch, Window Coverings, Program Logic Plugins, and the Combination Switch plugin.


It has been designed for extensibility and localization and customization of the Semantic rules. These features will be made available in subsequent releases.

Recent changes:
Totally Hands Free ... can be launched from OK Google.
OPEN Mike - Continuous Recognition Supported!
Run as Service + Nexus Fixes
Handle startup problems when Vera does not have any defined scenes.
Minor bug fix in confusion handling wild card requests:
i.e.

        Works great on Moto X 2nd Gen and Vera Edge/ UI7! Hoping for a Moto 360, Android Wear app like Imperihome.

        Could be useful but isn't. Due to poor documentation and strange application design, this is an app that should be easy to use but isn't. Getting voice recognition to work seems to need you to press buttons despite there being hands-free features mentioned. There is no quit option, you have to force close it or wait for a timeout. Really needs a reworked UI and some proper documentation, even the help reader is confusing.

        Doesn't work. Seems to need some kind of registration code that it won't provide. Then, it asks for a paypal donation. Hmmmmmmm.

        Works well If it could be set to always listening (like "okay Google now" on some phones), it would be incredible.
