In Germany, such people are called “cannon fodder”. I am becoming more and more relaxed about the fact that my order number starts at 69. It is still early enough to prepare myself for this adventure :innocent::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:.

[APP][Pro] Amazon - Alexa, now has an experimental version available for people running HP2023.

Update on the Ring Doorbell and Camera app:

The update to SDK3 is ready to be tested. Because the app is new to me I have no insight in how many users have previously installed it as a test version so I’m a bit reluctant to publish a test version to the App Store before more people have tested the app.

Please see the thread on Slack concerning testing the SDK3 version.

I’ve also run this version on the new Homey Pro Early 2023 and see no difference compared to how it performs on older Homeys, so up to now it looks updating to SDK3 is enough to use it on Homey Pro Early 2023 without any additional changes.

Hi! I know that many, along side myself has asked about ikea tradfri gateway app. The last post i can find regarding an update is in another forum post link.

I don’t know wheter or not @rogierhofboer has made any progress in possibly updating the app but i read that pull request is welcome. I don’t have the skillset myself but i thought it would be a good idea to post it in this thread, perhaps there is someone willing to help out?

I have just send a message to the dev if i can update and he will then publish and maintain or if i can take over the Ikea App.

I didn’t see that post from @rogierhofboer until you just send it.
So thanks :wink:

Hello.

Does anybody know what the rules are if a developer is not updating his app anymore and doesn’t response on his github Remote Speak or email?
Can and may it be taken over? And if yes, is there somebody that can and want to to this?

His last response was on november 4th 2018.

Yeah, i have allready tried him many ways: no reactions.
There are rulls about them writen somewhere, just can’t find them now.

My experience is that Athom will not pass the app without the OK from the old developer. Last chance would be to begin from scratch or fork the app and upload with a new app ID.

Old apps will be hidden (SDK2) or Athom will hide it on request if the developer does kot answer on Athoms request.

So you can add a second similar app but you need to add all devices again because of the new app ID.

Thank you both for your explaining. The problem is that remote speak depends on remote speak that is installed on my android phone. This gives a token that must be filled in on the remote speak homey app. Without it it won’t work.

So if someone would make his own new remote speak homey app must also make a new kind of remote speak for the android phones and apple. To do this sounds dificult for me.

Or someone must find a way to give the text directly to google assistant on the android phone or siri on the apple. I don’t know if that is possible.

I allready have this: Homey Watchman (works also only on phone’s).
But it’s not ready to be published yet, altho it needs to be finished for hp2023.

Edit:
The Watchman app i have been using already for about 4 years.
But with the re-writing of apps for HP2023, i finnaly can remove all personal coding from it to start publishing it.

Right now, it is still my main-personal app, which makes it hard to publish.
But asa soon as i have the HP2023 fully up and running (without watchman), ill remove all personal stuff (or a quick full rebuild) and publish it.

Wow. Really. This is great news. Your the best.

How does this work? Arie. Does it use the google assistant? Or do i need to install a app on the phone, like the remote speak?

Yeah, you need the/my (Homey) Watchman app on your phone (and optional your (Wear OS currently) smartwatch.
In Homey there is also an app which you can add phone/watches to.

And then you can speak to homey and it speaks back, just like it used to, back in the day.

‘Turn lights of in the living room’, stuff like that works automaticly.
But he/she/it also talks back, can confirm questions and send notifications.
And ofcoarse you can configure any flows with a “Has said […]” flowcards to activate special flows.


Sorry, bit off-topic.

For me it is more that when i’m not at home that it can speak a message on my phone when there is a break in at home or a water lekkage. So when i’m not home my phone get’s a written text that he announce in spoken words (Voice.)

Yeah that works: eather by using default Google voices and settings, or with the JSON of the Google Services, you can improve the voices for free (just a bit off work, just like with the google service app).
