    There is new hardware available from Ness which allows to control Ness M1 and Cbus lighting thru Alexa, Google, Apple voice control. Is anyone tried it yet?
    Could be nice addition or alternative to the Smartvoice.

    I'll order one on Monday.
    Will be nice to be able to control relays and tasks from M1

    Seeing this is a Raspberry Pi (appears to be) why can't Clipsal do the same thing. The inferface would appear to be suitable and it would just be the command to the device - in this case C-Gate instead of the M1.

    From a high level, all that is needed is whatever code they are using , C-Gate for Linux.

    Potentially FauxMo (Wemo emmulator) might be able to do the job and then a nice web front end for configuration.

    I've spoke with Clipsal rep on the show when they were promoting Smartvoice and been told there is no plans for Clipsal voice control. May be they will acquire Smartvoice later on as the same thing happened to Push controls.

    It would be interesting to see the image on the SD card - if it is actually accessible to see if my theory is correct.

    Fauxmo allows custom plugins so a C-Gate plugin could theoretically be done. Add a SIM and connect directly to the network with needing a network interface.
