What is LANnouncer (formerly LANdroid)
LANnouncer is a device driver for the Samsung SmartThings home automation hub, bringing audio alerts to the system through any connected Android device.
- Speech Synthesis
- Alarms (Siren/Strobe)
It does so over:
- The LAN (local sub-net; tablet/phone on same WiFi network as the
- SMS (anywhere – an SMS is sent to the device, resulting in the
functionality but also in otherwise-pointless SMS messages)
This is supported in the
SmartThings community thread “Android as a Speech/Alarm Device
released!”, although this
beta thread also may be helpful.
Beyond that, LANNouncer works well with:
- Bluetooth speakers
- Some IP Cameras
