    I would have no issue with sharing it ů if I remembered how I did it ů
    I didnĺt document it at the time because I didnĺt see it as a quick hack and not a good starting point for a long-term solution.

    LMS Voice control

    Has anyone made any further progress here? I have Touch and RasPi pCorePlayers throughout my home and now got RasPi Home Assistant up and running. I would like to have Alexa voice control of my LMS over and above basic on/off volume up/down i.e. selection and playing of favourites, music folders and/or specific song tracks from my collection. I'd pay for Nabu Casa HA icloud integration if that would do it but I haven't found much evidence of this to date. Having had fingers burnt in the past, I'm reluctant to open up ports on my router and I'm getting a bit old to set up all the LMS Controls from first principles, hence my interest in Nabu Casa.

    If anyone else shares these goals and has made any progress I would very much welcome tips and suggestions

    Thanks in advance

    Chip

    This thread is about Google Home integration - not Amazon Alexa.

    If you do want Alexa then search this forum and you will find at least 3 solutions that are supported by 3rd-party developers.

    My mistake Paul. I should have said Alexa and/or Google.

    My Home Assistant implementation is quite recent and I'm still trying to figure out if this offers an easier/more secure/more robust/more cost effective option for voice control, or not. I have Amazon Prime and a couple of Echos but also lots of Google Android devices so all options open.

    Given that you have an Alexa device your can try out the integration for free.
    But head over to one of the Alexa threads for more on that particular topic/integration.
