This includes the source code but it’s quite untidy so treat it as for reference only. Raspberry Pi runs the software. LightwaveRF control is done over IP (blog.networkedsolutions.co.uk). Voice recognition library is CMU pocketsphinx (cmusphinx.sourceforge.net). Speech is generated by festival (www.cstr.ed.ac.uk). GPIO stuff uses WiringPi (wiringpi.com). The IR control is done using the clock on GPIO7 to produce the 38KHz modulation needed.
