Amazon has announced (finally) the Echo products in Italy (next October 30th).
Meantime, from alexa.amazon.it site, with my amazon account I tried to add Openhab skill to Alexa. Unfortunately, the Openhab skill doesn’t apear in the Alexa smart home skill list. I can see Home Assistant for example, but no OH.
It seems a limitation of the Alexa’s Italian version only, so I think the question goes to the Openhab’s developers: Is there an expected date to release integration with Amazon Echo Italy or what else can I do?
I’m really interested in an answer because I want to buy an Alexa Echo Dot.
I’ve seen an easy way to build custom alexa skills with this web platform https://getstoryline.com/projects. It seems very user friendly and simple. It supports HTTP calls so I suppose that we can integrate some sort of automation prior the release of official OpenHAB Alexa Skill for the Italian market.
I think it will appear shortly. They are working on it.
Ok, thank you.
Any news on the Italian version of Alexa Skill??I’m impatient to use it, even a beta version, If you need help I can lend a hand
