This must be changed there:


(Metin) #22

@Celaeno1: While it may be technically correct to put the list on the skill documentation page, most users won’t search there. At least, we should provide a link from the binding docs to the skill docs?


(Alex) #23

@metin

IMO a user should be able to find and read documention here

But there are too less examples. Maybe someone could extend this.


(Metin) #24

@Celaeno1: shouldn’t we make it as easy as possible for non-technical users?

I have to admit, I myself did not find the Alexa skill docs easily. When throwing “openhab alexa” at Google, for some reason, it does not come up with that page on the first few result pages. I think there’s more advantages than disadvantage in in cross-linking doc pages, isn’t it?

This should be an own documentation page: Tags

D= only color “white”, use it like a dimmer! See here!
F = not documented
J = not documented, but there is also a workaround! And see here!


(Metin) #26

My (German) Alexa just responds: “Automatischer Modus ist auf Anzahl Grad gestellt.”


(Alex) #27

Thanks for reporting. :slight_smile: I’m going to test it this evening! I rarely ask Alexa this! :wink:

EDIT: I tried out. And it is true!

“Automatischer Modus ist auf *Anzahl* Grad gestellt.”

So they’ve changed it.


(Metin) #28

I just noticed that I can also say very briefly, "Alexa, make it warmer/cooler, (“Alexa, mach es wärmer/kühler”) and as a result, the set temperature will be increased/reduced by 1 degree. Which is nice!


(Metin) #29

I would like to add a convenient aspect I’ve found, but haven’t seen documented anywhere yet. Please bear with me, if I have overlooked something, and it is already well-known.

It’s about the use of groups within Alexa:

In the Alexa app, you can create groups and add devices to these groups. I’ve created a group for each room in my home. By using rooms a groups, I’m able to say “Change temperature in room name to 21 degrees”. This means that I don’t have to name the device, as Alexa will automatically select the thermostat that is in this room. Same works for lights. “Switch off lights in room name” will select all lights in that room.

It gets even better when you add the Echo device to the same group (= room in my case). Since then the Echo you are talking to knows where it is, and you can be very brief, saying for example, “Alexa, make it warmer”. By leaving out both device name and room name, Alexa will try to get the correct context and assume that you refer to the thermostat that is in the same as the Echo that you were talking to. And it further assumes that “warmer” means to increase the set temperature by one degree.

@metin

Yes, I know all about this. And I read it somewhere here in forum.

EDIT: I mentioned it here.

And another guy here.


(Metin) #31

Wow, that’s old. :zipper_mouth_face:


(Tobias) #32

How can I adress the homekit:HeatingCoolingMode using voice commands? Say, to switch the thermostat off?

If you have a hint for the (German) command, I would be very glad :slight_smile: Thanks!


(Tobias) #33

“Alexa, turn the heating to 22 degrees” - > “Thermostat heating is set to 22 degrees”
“Alexa, switch the heating off” -> “Thermostat heating does not support this”
(from German)

Can anyone help? Please check Thermostat works well in Google Home, but not with Alexa
