Opendaikin vs alexa skill

Good morning, I’m on trouble to expose my Daikin clima to Alexa. I read that we are going to switch on v3 skill but is a dev feat. So my problem is on V2 now:

1 - Group    gClima_Sala               "Clima Sala"         ["Thermostat"]
2 - Switch   Power_Clima_Sala          "Power"              ["WHAT_TAG"]                  (gClima_Sala)  {channel="opendaikin:ac_unit:power"}
3 - Number   SetPoint_Clima_Sala       "Setpoint [%.0f °C]" ["homekit:TargetTemperature" ](gClima_Sala)     {channel="opendaikin:ac_unit:settemp"}
4 - Number   IndoorTemp_Clima_Sala     "Temperatura Interna"[%.1f °C]" (gClima_Sala)[ "CurrentTemperature" ]{channel="opendaikin:ac_unit:indoortemp"}
5 - Number   OutdoorTemp_Clima_Sala    "Temperatura Esterna [%.1f °C]" ["WHAT_TAG"] (gClima_Sala)                {channel="opendaikin:ac_unit:outdoortemp"}
6 - String   Mode_Clima_Sala           "Mode"               [ "homekit:HeatingCoolingMode" ]    (gClima_Sala) {channel="opendaikin:ac_unit:mode"}
7 - String   FanSpeed_Clima_Sala       "Fan"                ["WHAT_TAG"] (gClima_Sala)   {channel="opendaikin:ac_unit:fanspeed"}

2 - What is the correct tag for power? have I to map as single switch?
3 - Have I to customize homekit:TargetTemperature with some ADD parameter?
5 - is it possible to map both indoor and outdoor temp?
6 - Have I to customize homekit:HeatingCoolingMode with some ADD parameter
7 - What is the correct tag for power?

Thank you,

A Switch should be tagged as “Switchable”
No additional parameters for TagetTemperature
Just one temperature reading possible
Please have a look at the homekit documentation for supported heating modes. You possibly have to map them.
There is no support for the fan speed actually.

Still don’t work. Now when Alexa search a new object it find a switch named “POWER” and a thermostat without possibility to interact. If I click on it, alexa does not show on/off or temperature but the configuration screen
