MMM-Assistantmk2 and MMM-Hotword not picking up



  • I have MMM-Assistantmk2 and MMM-Hotword installed and the little logo comes up on screen on MM but none of the hotwords activate it for some reason 😕 can anyone help me? Not sure what’s wrong



  • @Sean possible for you to help me? I believe this is your module so you would know best haha



  • It works when I get my mouse in the right spot and I click the icon, can talk to it and it talks back, just doesn’t pick up the hotwords 😕



  • @sdetweil do you have any knowledge of these modules? You’ve been a great help in my other problems



  • @jmartin1009 i have not used those modules…



  • @jmartin1009 if you start MM in developer mode,

    npm start dev
    

    and then select the console tab of the dev window

    do you see the notifications being sent?

    and u are not using MMM-Voice at the same time, right? only one module can have the mic at a time


  • Project Sponsor Module Developer

    seems to be an audio config issue .
    Please paste your config.js file here
    and the outputs of the following commands :
    aplay -l
    arecord -l

  • @sdetweil I’m not using MMM-Voice, I’m using MMM-Assistantmk2 and MMM-Hotword, hotword pics up the word to wake the assistant and assistant takes care of the rest. I’ve been able to talk to the assistant but hotword doesn’t wake when I say the wakeword.



  • @ejay-ibm here is my magicmirror config file:

    var config = {
    	address: "localhost", // Address to listen on, can be:
    	                      // - "localhost", "127.0.0.1", "::1" to listen on loopback interface
    	                      // - another specific IPv4/6 to listen on a specific interface
    	                      // - "", "0.0.0.0", "::" to listen on any interface
    	                      // Default, when address config is left out, is "localhost"
    	port: 8080,
    	ipWhitelist: ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1"], // Set [] to allow all IP addresses
    	                                                       // or add a specific IPv4 of 192.168.1.5 :
    	                                                       // ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1", "::ffff:192.168.1.5"],
    	                                                       // or IPv4 range of 192.168.3.0 --> 192.168.3.15 use CIDR format :
    	                                                       // ["127.0.0.1", "::ffff:127.0.0.1", "::1", "::ffff:192.168.3.0/28"],

    here is the output for aplay -l:

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ aplay -l

    I do use PulseAudio because i use the PS3 eye mic, which uses a mic array that alsamixer doesn’t like, but it works when i talk to the assistant, Hotword just doesn’t hear my wakewords.
    Here is the output for arecord -l

    pi@raspberrypi:~ $ arecord -l
    **** List of CAPTURE Hardware Devices ****
    card 1: CameraB409241 [USB Camera-B4.09.24.1], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    

    It seems to work whether i use “plughw: 0” and “plughw: 0, 1”.



  • @jmartin1009 I would remove the space in the device name

    "plughw: 0,1"
