I want to use my phone to trigger things around the house when I'm home. I realize this is a pretty big project that goes beyond just taker, so any tips as to how complicated it can be and how expensive will be nice! I'm going to break it down in a way that makes sense.
+ First, I want my computer to wake up when I'm home. Easy enough I think with wake by LAN, I know tasker has these options. I have a PC with Windows 7 pro
+ Second, I want to be able to tell my phone what to play music from my computer by voice. Commands such as "play cool jazz" or "play rock," etc. I have the tasker voice plugin installed, the problem is with the computer. I use Google Play for my music... how can I automate it over there?
+ Third, it would be really nice if my computer could fire up Netflix and set up duel screens (I have my TV attached) when I say netflix. I'd like to be able to use my phone as a remote when this happens (tasker could activate the right app) so I could choose what to watch.
+ forth idea (yeah I'm greedy...) I saw it on +Armando Ferreira
's video, I'd like my lights to turn on or off (especially one light in the livingroom) when I enter the apartment. I realize I need to buy a special adapter for that.
+ Fifth have my phone "welcome home, sir" when it's plugged in my house. Then ask me "shall I play some music?" and if I say yes, it will ask what music and play according to what I described earlier. (it doesn't need to to be an if then statement, it just need to be in listening mode basically so when I say something it does it).
Sooooo how would you at making some of the scifi stuff here real?
