- Amazon Polly – Pros: The output audio is very close to human speech and with a rich choice of languages and voices.
- Amazon Polly – Cons: Slightly more complicated setup than Google.
Additionally this flow demonstrates how to buffer notification messages and play them one by one from a queue. It is assumed that the SONOS speaker is dedicated for voice announcements. The queued messages are played only when there’s nothing played.
The following nodes must be configured:
- Setup the Polly node (see comment for instructions regarding Amazon Key)
- Set the realKNX IP
- Set the SONOS IP
