iCalendar to Voice

Raymond Brink

This app adds flow cards and voice triggers that enable Homey to announce your (iCal) appointments and emit triggers so you can run flows based on appointments in your calendars.

The iCalendar to Voice App is the missing link between your online (cloud) calendar and Athom’s fantastic Homey product. This app adds flow cards and voice triggers that enable Homey to announce your (iCal) appointments and emit triggers so you can run flows based on appointments in your calendars. 1. Features The iCalendar to Voice App enables your Homey to: 1. Trigger flows based on upcoming events in your calendar. 2. Announce your full schedule for today, tomorrow or a specific day of the week. 3. Announce your remaining schedule for today. 4. Announce your next appointment. 5. Announce your first appointment of tomorrow. 2. Supported Languages The iCalendar to Voice App currently supports both English and Dutch languages. PLEASE CONTACT ME, IF YOU WANT TO HELP TRANSLATE THE ICALENDAR TO VOICE APP TO OTHER LANGUAGES. 3. Native Voice Triggers (v0.1.4+) The iCalendar to Voice App supports native voice triggers. Trigger keywords are in bold. Try asking: OK, HOMEY: - What is my SCHEDULE/CALENDAR like? - What is my SCHEDULE/CALENDAR for TODAY/TOMORROW/SUNDAY/MONDAY/TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY/FRIDAY/SATURDAY/? - What is my NEXT APPOINTMENT? - What is my FIRST APPOINTMENT for TOMORROW? You can alter the input to your liking, as long as you use the bolded KEYWORDS in the sentence. 4.
