Alexa room awareness skill question

Can OH item tags be used to make items room specifc for use in Alexa room awareness?

I didn’t see it in the docs! If it is not possible could it be made possible in the future? It would be nicer to define an Alexa ‘room’ via OH rather than creating groups in the Alexa app.

There is no way to control Alexa room awareness at the skill level via the Alexa Smart Home API.

You can either create groups in the Alexa app or use a workaround using the Amazon Echo Control binding as per the tutorial below.

Unfortunately, Amazon hasn’t made any progress since then and I don’t expect them to do any going forward unless the development on their end involves bringing a new smart product of their own to market.
