In the end, the Google Assistant-powered intercom isn’t quite as powerful as a Google Home. It can accept commands and, with the help of IFTTT recipes, control some of MisterM’s smart home gadgets. But for now, the Google AIY software doesn’t offer Chromecast or music integration, and it won’t work with a wake word like “OK Google.” That could obviously change if and when Google updates the source code. Either way, MisterM’s intercom is not only clever. It’s absolutely awesome—especially because his Instructables post tells you how to build your own.
