If I say to alexa: “open my shutter” or “close my shutter” alexa does nothing. On the other hand, if I tell Alexa “set my roller shutter to a percentage value”, then Alexa moves the roller shutter to that value.
But until 15 days ago everything was working correctly. What has changed now? I haven’t changed anything. I have Openhab 2.5.4.
Thanks and best wishes for a Merry Christmas to all!
You will have to use metadata configuration at some point
Can you please post your event logs for this item associated with the Alexa requests? It is either your voice requests which are not understood or your binding can’t handle UP/DOWN commands on open/close requests. This is the only difference for this device type that was introduced in the major skill update along with Rollershutter items being inverted by default as highlighted in this thread.
So tired, the last trying to figure out what is going with the rollershutters.
A bit frustrated too… Is there any centralized place where I could figure out a solution?
Rollershutters are working inverted and when I deleted one of them through the alexa app it never came back or discovered again.
Any reply would be realy apreciated.
Agree, frustrating. I had a similar issue, the rollershutter didn’t seem to be discovered as I got the message “no new devices found” but in reality the shutters were discovered. Did you look into your list of devices?
Which actually worked but without any notice in Amazon app. and without been able to invert the working way.
The invert bullet is not working for me, when I save the settings and get back it doesn’t save it, same in non-graphical way.
Using for commands STOP=@Value.Stop as per the docs doesn’t work but changing it to STOP=STOP does.
Also, a comment
For me fully open is 0%, fully closed is100%. Thats fine, but when commanding to a percentage position the blind responce is inverted and appears to be a % of fully open position and not % of fully closed position as expected.
eg command blinds to 20% and the blinds stop just before fully closed, as if I asked for 80%. I was expecting them to be almost fully open as 100% is fully closed.
Increase and decrease are also inverted. eg Increase the blind 10%, results in the blind moving nearer to the close position
