Alexa Actions: Actionable notifications with openHAB


For Home Assistant there has been an extension “Alexa Actions: Actionable notifications” [].

This makes it possible for Alexa to ask you a question without being asked and to respond differently to your answer.

Can we implement a similar system in openHAB?

As an example:
Alexa: “I’ve noticed the front door has been unlocked for 5 mins, would you like me to lock it?”
You: “Yes”
> The door locks

Thanks and best regards


Feel free to open a new feature request.

Just to be clear, this could be considered at some point in the future once the asynchronous support is implemented which will include a new Alexa binding.


Hello! Any update on this?
I know that other smart home systems are already providing this feature.

I couldn´t find any information regarding openhab…is it a planned feature?

Thank you!

This is still something that could be considered at some point in the future. We are currently focusing on implementing the asynchronous support.
