1. A device for connected device voice command support, the device comprising:
a microphone to receive a voice command from a user;
a device discovery circuit set to identify a set of connected devices proximate to the user;
a speech converter to:
transform the voice command into a semantic representation of the voice command; and
translate the semantic representation of the voice command into a command for the set of connected devices; and
a transceiver to communicate the command to the set of connected devices including the transceiver to:
transmit the command to the set of connected devices;
receive responses to the transmission of the command from a subset of the set of connected devices, the responses indicating that the command matches a supported command of members of the subset of connected devices;
identify conflicts between a plurality of the subset of connected devices based on the command
present the existence of the conflicts to the user via a haptic output;
observe a physical response of the user to select a connected device from the plurality of the subset of connected devices, the physical response being at least one of waving a hand or looking at the connected device; and
respond to the subset of connected devices to carry out the command by a reissue of the command transmitted to the set of connected devices again to the connected device, the reissue of the command being restricted to the connected device by the physical response of the user in response to the presentation of the conflicts.
