Assigning Wattage, Voltage etc. of a power plug to Alexa

Hi,
I tried to assign wattage, voltage, etc. to an Alexa item to request their value by voice commands…
I successfully missued the TemperatureSensor.temperature, but this is not a very smart solution as it assign the values to temperature in text as well as in category.
I also tried ModeController.mode, but failed.
Any hints?
Thanks Joerg

Can you provide more details such as the item definition you want to expose to Alexa? I assume you just want to request for the item state?

Thanks Jeremy,
sure. Below an example for my microwave:

Switch EG_Kueche_Mikrowelle_Command “Mikrowelle” (gEG_Kueche_Mikrowelle)
{mqtt=">[mosquitto:Haus/OT/WL_SP1_02/cmnd/POWER1:command:ON:1],>[mosquitto:Haus/OT/WL_SP1_02/cmnd/POWER1:command:OFF:0],<[mosquitto:Haus/OT/WL_SP1_02/tele/STATE:state:JSONPATH($.POWER1)]",
alexa=“PowerController.powerState”}
String EG_Kueche_Mikrowelle_State “Status Mikrowelle [%s]” {mqtt="<[mosquitto:Haus/OT/WL_SP1_02/tele/STATE:state:JSONPATH($.POWER1)]"}
Number EG_Kueche_Mikrowelle_Power “Verbrauch Mikrowelle [%.1f W]” (gEG_Kueche_Mikrowelle,gOT_Chart_Energy) {mqtt="<[mosquitto:Haus/OT/WL_SP1_02/tele/SENSOR:state:JSONPATH($.ENERGY.Power)]"}
Number EG_Kueche_Mikrowelle_Total “Gesamtverbrauch [%.3f kWh]” (gEG_Kueche_Mikrowelle) {mqtt="<[mosquitto:Haus/OT/WL_SP1_02/tele/SENSOR:state:JSONPATH($.ENERGY.Total)]"}

Thanks. Please make sure to use code fences. Also, can you include the group definition for gEG_Kueche_Mikrowelle and also the state mapping for EG_Kueche_Mikrowelle_State?

Sorry for the late answer. I was on vacation.
had to figure out, how fencing works, as the edit icons for code fencing are not visible in my pane.
I just saw the description when hovering over the empty pane.
I now managed to get the items by utilizing.
{alexa="RangeController.rangeValue....}
Thanks Joerg

Awesome. Would you be able to share your item definition so that others with the same question have an example to work with? Thanks

Hi,
here’s one example

Number          KG_Heizungsraum_Strom_Verbrauch         "Stromverbrauch aktuell [%.0f W]"                           <stromverbrauch_02>     (gKG_Heizungsraum_Strom, gPower,gOT_Chart_Energy)
                                                        {alexa="RangeController.rangeValue" [nonControllable=true, supportedRange="0:5000:1"]}
N
