Hi everybody,
I have a question for you experts.
A friend of mine, who is forced on a wheel chair,
asked to me if it was possible to switch on / off
the lights in his house (or open/close the blinds)
by simply using voice commands.
Example: he enters his bedroom and speaks
"BEDROOM" "LIGHTS" "ON" or
"BEDROOM" "BLINDS" "CLOSE"
Can this be done?
Is there anything existent on the market? Or at least
could you please suggest me some resources and devices
to "put together" in order to build something like that?
My friend reminds me that something similar can be found
in cellphones, where you can call a name by clicking
a button and pronouncing the name of the receiver.
I thank you all for any advice.

Franz

They have the best product out there and it's well developed and
supported.
They interface with X10 and there are motorized blinds from Somfy that
have an X10 interface.

Thanks for the tip, Bruce.
I was wondering if it's available on the market something
similar to the automatism of the cellphones, without basing the system
on an always-on PC program.
But I think it's pretty impossible, isn't it?
