Takes a little work setting it up with Big Talker and Smartthings but definitely worth the effort. I had trouble setting it up initially because Bluhell was blocking me from adding my Smartthings hub. I have and old Tegra Note 7 tablet that announces when outside does open and close. It even works if the screen is not on just make sure the WiFi is set to stay on and don't doze the apps.
On Android 5.0.1, the listener service will not stay running. You say it is compatible with Android 5, but not the case with me. Email support ceased for some reason. I was hopeful for a cool app, but not on Android 5.0.1 at least.
Needs update The instructions on the website are seriously in need of an update. They no longer come even close to matching what the setup screens for Smartthings now look like. It's 100% useless without that.
Instructions are as clear as pig crap and do not seem to work or correspond with any options shown on the website. What a waste of my time, yours too if you try and use this.
This works great with Smartthings . How can I change the voice?
