Looking for more fluid options for voice control myself as I'm sure many others are as well now with advancements and affordability of home products.
My current home setup:
Google home
Smart things hub
Z-wave light switches
Z-wave plugs
Nest thermostats
Nest protects
I can control almost most of my daily items in my home with voice control. I can even turn my TV on and off but there seems to be limited availability to control a TiVo. (Researched and best option seems to be Harmony hub, but will I have to ditch my TiVo remote?)
Maybe Google home can allow control for apps so I could assign commands "OK Google change channel to 224" and it uses the TiVo remote app on my phone? But this wouldn't help out the many Amazon Alexa users....I'm hoping something comes about in the near future!

I use harmony and amazon echo to turn on tv and TiVo and to change to fave channels.
For example 'Alexa turn on Komi' turns on TiVo, TV and changes channel.

Of course give that rovi/TiVo have a voice platform it would be nice to see them bring it bear.

My only issue was having to buy another hub and to set up each command in IFTTT. Currently Google Home won't talk directly to Harmony but will to smart things or a chance of direct communication through IFTTT.
I've read some others posts and each action needs to be individually added, it seems very tedious and many have complained over communication drop outs. I will consider tinkering. I'm new to IFTTT but if I make a whole bunch of commands I plan to post for the next guy.
