anyone already tried this?
Alexa Node-Red Skill
I’m trying it at the moment
The first steps are working with pimatic-node-red (with direct integration of pimatic commands) like simple switch on and off.
I was wondering whether it is possible to customize the response of the echo dot?
I have implemented some switches but i am struggling with the shutters. What’s the command to move up or down an shutter in Alexa?
@kenci I think an direct implemention of shutters don’t exist at the moment.
The only chance maybe is to take the workaround over on and off and percentage value of a dimmer with msg.command:
getTemperatureRequest for heating devices and temperature sensors works too.
yes thats true, but with this node-red skill you can use more commands and you can better customize commands and responses.
@Felix-Haverkamp I dont have a Alexa (jet) and i use the combination of nodered with About everything ranging from mqtt, pimatic, mysensors etc.
In your first post you mention to install the node red plug-in in pimatic? I dont think that is required anymore and makes the nodered install itself more flexible and more up to date!
yeah, thought the intergrated node-red is nice to use. But in the end, and with node-red updates coming with pimatic, i know think its a bad idee. With every update i have to add all node-red plugins again.
