I am using openhab2 with a homematic cul and different items. All are connected by the original openhab skill with alexa. I can dimm and switch light by Alexa and it’s working great. Now I have added a homeatic relais and placed it next to my garage door.
I have added the item in /etc/openhab2/items/myitems.items and Alexa is able to find it:
Switch cardoor "cardoor" <light> ["Lighting"]
But it is recognized as light and i need to say the command. “Turn cardoor on” and “Turn cardoor off”. I want Alexa to recognize it as a door and therefore accept the command “Open cardoor” and “Close cardoor”.
How do I need to define the item that it will be recognized as door with open and close command? I have already tried a lot, but nothing works.
