Voice notifications

I would like to be able to have my Fire tablet announce selected state changes under specific conditions. For example, if a door is opened, have the tablet(s) announce: “Front door open”… Is there any known way to accomplish this?

Hi @nbunn221, you can use Fully Kiosk Browser on the Fire tablet, and use the community developed Fully Kiosk Browser device handler to bring it to your SmartThings/Hubitat platform, and then you can create a rule like the screenshot below to achieve this.

Be sure to install the Fully Kiosk Browser APK for Fire OS specifically.

Great! However, my tablet does not appear in the device list. How do I make that happen?

The SharpTools Rule Engine device list?

After you’ve added the Fully Kiosk Browser device to your hub, make sure to authorize it by going through the authorization process again from your SharpTools.io User Page.

I have the device in place, created the rule and added it to the dashboard. However,nothing seems to happen. Is there a way to see if a rule is being executed and the result?

The rule is working, but the tablet is silent.

That sounds like the device handler is having issue connecting to the Fully Kiosk Brower. Have you complete the device’s setup after install the device handler? Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try:

  1. Visit the Fully’s Remote Admin page. Ex: 192.168.1.2:2323. and see if you can issue the command from there.
  2. In the SmartThings app, go to this tablet device you created and tap the “Find Sensor” button to see if the tablet plays any sound.

The IP address of the tablet is not responding. Yes, I verified it. :wink:

There is no sound when I try to find the sensor, either.

Can you share a screenshot of your Fully Kiosk Settings → Remote Administration screen?

Per the Device Driver Installation Instructions, the following settings need to be enabled:

  • Enable Remote Administration
  • Remote Admin Password (needs to have a value set)
  • Remote Admin from Local Network

In the screenshot above, I am able to access the Remote Admin webpage if I open a browser and navigate to: http://192.168.1.199:2323

Thanks. I have enabled remote admin and see the following:

Because you are using a fire tablet would it not be a simple fix to use Alexa to announce your door is open?
