UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE
With the questions and feedback of our users we are determined to bring you the best possible experience that we can when you use EchoSistant, and because of you we are working daily to bring EchoSistant to full maturity.
This update brings you expanded feedback capabilities for contact sensors on your doors and windows.
you can also start the color loop from the profile. Alexa, start color lo in the living room
To perform this update successfully you must:
- Update the EchoSistant Parent App
- Update the LIST_OF_COMMANDS in the custom slots of the MAIN INTENT SKILL
Do you want to know exactly what doors, windows, or both are open or closed at any time? Well, now it’s really easy to find out. Just ask EchoSistant!
Alexa, ask home what doors are open.
She will respond… (if you have 2 doors open)
“The following doors are open, Garage door, Front Door”
Alexa, ask home how many doors are open.
She will respond…
"There are 2 doors open, would you like to know which ones?
Then just say yes or no, and she will tell you.
You can ask which doors are OPEN or which doors are CLOSED.
You can also ask about your windows in the same manner.
Now, let’s say you want to know what windows AND doors are open…
Just ask this…
Alexa, ask home what’s open?
I’ll let this response be surprise!!!
… and don’t forget… you can still ask about individual devices as well…
Alexa, ask home is the garage door open?
The small print…
There is a change to the UI with this update.
You will now choose contact sensors that are on your doors only. (include the garage door here too)
You will now choose contact sensors that are on your windows only.
You will now choose contact sensors that are NOT doors or windows.
Please see the wiki for a list of tested commands
Commands and phrases may not work the same for every one. Depending upon accent, country, and things like how many drinks you might have in you already, Alexa will hear us all differently. So, try different things and see what works for you. If you find something that works that is NOT listed in the Wiki… Let us know.
