[Echo Control] new device echo 5 and new features

Hi all,
I use several amazon echo devices, and I have the new echo dot 5 one for a week.
This device add two very interresting features :

  • inside device-temperature
  • move detector from ultrasound sensor

I did not find elsewhere in community topics about his.
Is there a way to use these new features with the binding amazonechocontrol ?
I tried “temperature” channel but have no value, and cannot figure out to use move detection.
Thanks !

Unfortunately I don’t own such a device, so it’s hard to answer.

The most interesting question is: Can the app show it? If the answer is yes, then there is a good chance we can get it, too. If not, it’s probably more difficult.

Hi @J-N-K
Yes the app (android) handles this natively.
There is a special field “temperature sensor” in parameter section of device (with current room temperature), and multiple parameters for ultrasound move/presence sensor : enable/disable, sensitivity/strengh. It seems that you can even create routine with this parameter. (I guess it could be a dirty hack…)

Hi all,
Anyone else would be interested ?
Especially with the temperarure sensor… this would be very usefull to access this data from openhab.
