Amazon Echo Control: Is LastVoiceCommand still broken?

Running 3.2m3.

I can’t tell from the closed threads on the subject if I should be able to get this to work or not, but I’m having no luck in any event.

Web Socket close 1005. Reason: null

This drives a number of automations for us - so I’m trying to decide if I need to code for a work-around by having items in Alexa instead of just recognized phrases.

Depends on the version of the binding you use.

openHAB 3.1/3.2:

  • The one from the distribution: yes.
  • The one from the community marketplace: no.

openHAB 3.0:

  • The one from the distribution: yes.
  • The one linked in my post on the other thread: no.

openHAB 2.5:

  • Yes, no fix available or planned.

Excellent! Thanks for the details. I’m embarrassed to admit I didn’t know that the binding could live in two places at once within the UI.

Where do I find this?

This one from your other post works:
For openHAB 3.1.0 (M5 or release) and 3.2.0 (before M3): https://download.smarthomej.org/org.smarthomej.binding.amazonechocontrol-3.2.7-SNAPSHOT.jar

This one does not report last voice command:
https://ci.openhab.org/job/openHAB-Addons/ws/bundles/org.openhab.binding.amazonechocontrol/target/org.openhab.binding.amazonechocontrol-3.2.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

@NCO I am not sure when it was introduced, but in 3.2M3 on the bindings tab, you now have an option of installing bindings from the distribution or from the marketplace. You will see the Echo Control binding in both locations. Install from the marketplace.

Ah, I see - I was wondering, where the Market Place stuff comes from (just remember this from the old UI).
Unfortunately I am on the 3.1 release

Then use the one from the post you linked above.

I am on 3.2.0.M4 using the binding from the openHAB Distribution. Everything is working but the lastVoiceCommand. My understanding from reading above is that this version should be working?

Yes.

Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot?

I’m running the same version with same results. No error, just not working.

Best, Jay

Same, no errors in the logger

Use the version from here.

I use this one and it’s working fine.
However, the brand new release 3.2 does not have this update yet. :frowning:

I just installed it under OH3.2 and it appears to be working!
