Hey +João Dias. I have a question. I bought AutoVoice and I've created an API.ai voice program for most of my home automation. API.ai's fulfilment already calls the HTTPS endpoint to execute the actions. Everything works perfectly on my phone, so this is already awesome!

I'm now trying to allow Google Home to also call the api.ai intents more permanently than with a preview that expires in 24 hours at most. My application isn't generic enough for me to publish it, so it looks like I'll have to use autovoice? Or are there other ways to have your own Home actions more permanently?
(note: I'm not always going to be at home, so having it go through my phone my wife uses it at home while I'm not there isn't great)

If AutoVoice is the way to go: I can already "talk to AutoVoice" and it will show the strings on my phone in a toast. Through Google Home, it just doesn't seem to call api.ai in the same way when the voice commands are intercepted by the phone itself.

I've more or less stopped blogging since Ultimaker but always wanted to write more about things I care about, like sustainability. I finally created another blog post about my sustainability efforts of this weekend:

This weekend I installed a sensor to detect gas usage, a data collection system and a dashboard for my gas consumption... Next up: Adding a heat pump to heat my home using solar power!
