We have Lutron Ra2 with an "All Off" button on a keypad that turns all the lights off in my whole studio. I'm trying to basically get that button to also turn off a Samsung TV with a Google Chromecast attached to it.
Using the "All Off" button to trigger a rule is easy. Lutron integration is top-notch, love it.
I have a google Hub that happens to sit right next to the TV and I often tell the Hub to turn off the TV by speaking, "Hey Google, Turn off the TV". Works great using the HDMI CEC.
A lot of searching of this forums suggest there is no way to issue the "Hey Google, Turn off the TV" directly to the Google Hub via Hubitat without installing some additional software on another server - not ready for that yet.
So I think, let's have the TV use TTS to say to the Google Hub, "Hey Google, Turn off the TV" to turn itself off! Has to work right? NOOOO! As soon as the TV says "Hey Google", the Chromecast mutes itself for the next several seconds. I even used "Hey Googel" and couldn't fool it. If I use, "Hey Doodle, Turn off the TV", the TV says that of course but that doesn't trigger the Hub to wake up. I tried splitting it into multiple events with delays and several other things but it basically appears that as soon as the Chromecast hears itself say Hey Google (does it even have a mic?), it freezes up for a few seconds (and shows the cast icon on the screen). So strange.
What am I missing here? Why is this so difficult?!?!
