Amazon Echo / Alexa app

(12.10.2017, 13:57)jetsetter Wrote: @Daniel: As you are part of EMBS, can you please clarify to me some things based on your previous reply:
  1. Is it possible to ask Alexa for a light status i.e. "Alexa is Kitchen Spotlight On?" or "Alexa, what is the status of Kitchen Spotlight?". As far as I have seen on other skill implementations, it is possible for Alexa to respond to such questions by reading the status group address given inside the Alexa App configuration.
  2. I understand that the actual description you want to call for a light, should be placed in the "Friendly Name" field of Alexa App configuration. There is also a "Friendly Description" field does this also used by Alexa or it is just cosmetic or should I put there also the room name that the light belongs to? I have noticed that if I name one light like "kitchen spots" and another one "kitchen led" for example, and then I try to ask "Alexa, turn on kitchen led", she only gets the "kitchen" part ignoring the "led" so i get the "a few devices share this common name, Which one do you prefer?" answer (this has nothing to do with my accent). Have you configure your lights such way too and get them understood correctly by her?
  3. Besides an "AC on/off" switch, I have also created two other temperature objects in LM, one is used as my "AC setpoint" and the other for my "AC setpoint status". Then I created a thermostat device in Alexa App, and selected the "AC setpoint" group address in the Temperature object field and the "AC setpoint status" group address in the Temperature status object field. I can turn my AC on/off ok, but I am geting a "hmm, AC is not responding" answer when I ask her "Alexa, set AC to 25 degrees". Any ideas?
Thank you in advance!

Hi
1. Alexa has only one way communication at the moment. You can only ask her to do something.
2. I have in my office two set of lights and I called them 'Office one' and 'Office two' In 90% she do recognize me correctly. In rare cases she do ask which one do I want? This is nothing to do with our implementation. You can check in alexa app what words did she pick up. You can help her this way to understand you better as you can tell her if it was correct or not.
Description is only for you. Alexa is ignoring it.
3. This is known bug :Smile

Amazon recently announced range of new possibilities Read here
We are in process of complete rewrite of current app as they changed whole approach to the devices.  We are nearly finished and will publish soon.  This is why we didn't fix this bug as new app is on its way.
