    Hi all,

    Just after picking your brains really,

    I have got a customer who wants a home automation system with voice recognition as he is nearly blind. We install Control4 and AMX systems and also many others but have never come across a voice recognition system which can be itegrated into either of these.

    The customer wants control of audio,video, lighting and security, I have seen a couple of systems like HAL however I dont think that I would want to install these X10 systems on a professional level, I feel it is more for the Hobbyists.

    So Has anyone come across any of these systems? Or do you have any Ideas?


    Cheers Guys

    If memory serves me right, you should look at Clipsal C-Bus.

    This will be damned difficult to make reliable! Good Luck!

    Danny,

    I also think it would be quite difficult to implement.Of course it depends on what you want to automate.

    Homeseer has voice recognition capabilities. Please look also at the site below of this guy who seems to have achieved a reliable setup using homeseer and voice recognition. Please note though that the mic mixers he is using are for pro use and they are quite expensive.

    Also, the some new touchscreens from AMX have voip capabilities but I am not sure if the voice can be used to trigger commands.
