Scrypted is a home automation Android app that integrates with Google Assistant
Smart home devices are getting more and more popular as big companies and indie developers are constantly releasing new services that integrate with them. Some of them offer cross-platform capabilities to connect products from different manufacturers. Scrypted is a new Android app that does exactly that. It lets you connect your Google Home, Apple HomeKit, and Amazon Alexa devices and control them with your voice via Google Assistant. The application is written by a popular Android developer Koush, who is known for his work for ClockworkMod.
The application can be downloaded from the Play Store via the listing below. It is compatible with devices that run Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher. NVIDIA Shield and Fire TV have been tested and confirmed to be compatible. Android Things support is also here, so you can run Scrypted on Raspberry Pi or other IoT devices. The app will also be available in the Amazon App Store. Though, there is no mention of the iOS platform availability.
