My current setup includes the original Roomie Remote Blaster Ethernet. I also have a Vera Lite hub that ties in all my zwave devices (light dimmer switches and Yale Touch keypad lock and a RTSP Foscam network camera.
Now that Echo and Google home are out, I would love to have voice activated commands. Based on what I am reading, it appears that google home does not integrate directly with simple control. However, I do see that google home works with Smartthings Hub and that Smartthings can be integrated with Simple Control. So by the transitive property (A=B,B=C, then A=C) does that mean I can theoretically have Google Home work with Simple Control? are there or would there be any restrictions or pitfalls if I go this route? I prefer getting a Google home since I am a dedicated Google user and the google home’s other functionality (reminders, notes, google search, etc.) far exceeds alexa’s IMO.
If this works, I would get rid of my vera lite and re-sync my zwave devices (lights and door lock and cameras) with a new Smartthings hub. I assume I would be able to control my lights via voice command through google home, would i be able to control my TV and optimum tv box via google home voice commands? (turn on/off TV, channels, DVR, etc.)
