@djmvt Pimatic and Node-Red is a good pair.
Think about that.
Everything Pimatic can´t do, mostly Node-Red will do.
If you don´t want to use Node-Red (and MQTT), have a look at HA-Bridge, i think it “speaks” Google too.
I hate this complicated stuff that other systems have, it´s not User friendly. In my case (i´m 50 now) i have to learn a language everytime from the beginning if i´m not using it for a while
If you want to use Node-Red, don´t install the Node-Red-Plugin in Pimatic. The plugin comes with an old version of Node-Red. Install Node-Red in the normal way and the Pimatic-Plugin from “manage pallette” inside Node-Red.
