Just an interesting note. When I tell my Echo (Alexa) to turn on/off SmartThings integrated lights, it does so but makes a tone/beep instead of the verbal “Okay” we used to hear.
I think this is getting ready for the Amazon Dot to be released, which I’ve read has a very small (cellular phone sized) speaker. So having the tone instead of the Okay may be better for those us of like me who has pre-ordered two dots simply for home automation. I plan on putting one in the living room and one in the bedroom to be able to use voice for the smartthings controlled lights in those areas.
Or maybe my echo is just on the fritz and I’m reading too much in to this? She works properly for everything else though.
I noticed the same thing here, two days ago. Here’s an interesting tidbit, though:
I have 7 Hue bulbs, spanning across 3 lights. I have 1 GE Z-Wave switch for a light fixture fixture. I then have a Virtual Momentary Switch created in ST to do a batch lighting scene.
If I tell Alexa to turn on/off any of the Hue lights or GE switch, I get the ding. If I tell it to turn ON the virtual switch, I get a ding…BUT, if I tell it to turn OFF the virtual switch (which is momentary, so there really is no off), it says ‘OK’.
Interesting! But I do hope they add the option to change it. I much rather her say ‘OK’. Seems way cooler when people are at the house and realize she talks back!
