Alexa TTS - info from Homey, spoken by Alexa


Hi all.
So I’ve been researching and scavenging the web for anything related to Alexa TTS - so that you dont have to use Homey for this.
It’s much more intuitive to use Alexa for both the spoken commands, and for the readback/readout of information.

What I gathered was that this is available (albeit with some crude coding) on many of the other home automation solutions. So what can/could be done for Homey with the below information?

Alexa TTS for Home Assistant
Alexa TTS for HomeSeer
Alexa TTS for OpenHAB
Alexa TTS for Domoticz

I’m no coder myself, so I have very little to offer in terms of helping here, but I would guess that this is a feature that could be very valuable to a lot of users of Homey, and shouldn’t be that difficult to produce - based on the work already done by others.

Suggestions anyone? :wink:


I’m also looking for this for Google Home’s. Willing to donate because I can’t code either.


a Alexa TTS homey app would be great!


General better alexa support… I get a " radiator thermostat is not responding" 90% of the time for my fibaro heat…


Very very cool,

The code in the examples you provided also do a hell of a lot more than ‘text to speech’.

Make alexa say the weather
Make alexa tell you your traffic report
Make alexa say your flash briefing.
Make alexa sing a song

ie. Create a flow which 'when motion is detected in the kitchen and its a workday and before 10am, then play the weather report (once).

Looking at it - it also expects a capcha request/response so it would need to be able to handle that somewhere with in the app.

I might be interested in this, though I was planning on getting an app for Arlo cameras next or perhaps an app for the weather down under.

So many options so little time.


The code which connects alexa -> homey is manages by athom and is a private repo - you would have to contact support for help with that.

This is how ever homey -> alexa …
