i am trying to use my Alexa Echo Show as a Openhab dashboard.
Till now i am using the Alexa Skill MyPage to show OpenHab MainUI pages on the echo show. This works fine in combination with the amazonechocontrol Openhab binding. However i always have echo show internet browser menu at the top of the screen. Which is using up 1/4 of the available screen size …
I now tried to use this Home-Assistant guide:
I created my own Alexa skill in order to show the Openhab page.
Also i adapted the lambda_function.py file with my openhab page URL (http://192.168.x.xxx:8080/page/Echo_Show) and set the KIOSK_MODE to false. But i only get a black screen on the echo show as soon as i ask for the alexa skill …
I think it something with the lambda/template.json file which is not compatible to OpenHab. Maybe someone has a similar need and can help me tackle this issue Or maybe someone has a different approach.
I continued my search and found out that the internet browser search bar is also present using the “Home Assistant” - Alexa Skill approach … so this will not help and i can also stick with the MyPage Skill.
Does anyone have a hint how to hide this search bar?
