I use Alexa in german.

The following voice commands are running: My item has label “Wand Thermostat”.

Alexa stelle Wand Thermostat auf 22 Grad.
Alexa reduziere Wand Thermostat um 2 Grad
Alexa erhöhe Wand Thermostat um 1 Grad
Alexa reduziere Wand Thermostat.
Alexa wie ist Wand Thermostat eingestellt?
Alexa wie ist Wand Thermostat Temperatur?

Question:
How do I tell Alexa in german: OFF, HEAT, COOL, AUTO, heat-cool for a [ “Thermostat” ].

I tried:

AUS, OFF = OFF, nothing happend
HEIZEN, HITZE, WARM, WAERME, WAERMER, HEAT = HEAT, nothing happend
KUEHLEN, KUEHLER, KALT, KAELTE, COOL = COOL, nothing happend
AUTO, AUTOMATISCH, AUTOMATIK = AUTO, --> Alexa set Temperature to 1 (OK?? AUTO = 1 ??)

I also tried: BOOST, KOMFORT, MANUELL, MANU, ECO, ECONOMIE, MODE 0,1,2,3, MODUS 0,1,2,3: nothing happend

What do I have to tell Alexa in german? Are the english commands executed at all??

Or do I have to tell: 0,1,2,3 ??

Where do I get a complete list of ALL supported german commands of “Official Alexa Smart Home Skill for OH2”?

Is there also a complete list for english commands at all?

Thanks for this. I recently noticed that Alexa can now control my OH2 Switch devices using “open” and “close” voice commands, whereas before it only worked with “turn on” and “turn off”. This is excellent, as it’s a lot more logical for my garage door. Do you know where / when this functionality was added?


(Alex) #8

Sorry. I don’t know this.


(Rich P) #9

Thanks for pointing this out.

“Alexa, Open the Garage Door” & “Alexa, Close the Garage Door” work great with the Chamberlain MYQ binding now!


(Alex) #10

@michaeldavie @RichP I updated above list…, thanx for reporting!


(Tom) #11

Do you know if this ‘Open’ and ‘Close’ functionality just in the U.S. or in Europe (Germany) too?

If in German, please could you(or someone else) please explain the Item type and tag type used?

I couldn’t get it to work.

Thanks.


(Michael Davie) #12

It seems to have stopped working in English as well, at least for me. I’m back to “turn on” and “turn off” again.


(Alex) #13

It seems that open/close was thrown out by Amazon in V2. See here:
https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/alexa/alexa-skills-kit/docs/archive/shv2-smart-home-skill-api-reference#turnonrequest

There also is a new API verson = V3 of Amazon Smart Home Skill . There also “open/close” is gone.


(Tom) #14

That’s a shame. I guess I’ll have to go the clumsy 0 or 100% way to operate shutters.
