Harmony and alexa


#1

this is not really a ST question but you guys are smarter than the ones on the other forums.

I have harmony hub up and running fine with ST and Alexa.
i would like to be able to hit the music button on the Harmony remote and kick off alexa to play prime music.

am i asking for to much?

I would like that too!

I am not sure, but I think that Amazon Echo/Alexa cannot be activated to play music via a program like Harmony or others. Amazon Echo, currently, only responds to voice commands, except for Amazon proprietary routines, like Alarm or Timer.

Hopefully they will allow this in the near future. Many people have asked if Amazon Echo/Alexa can activate the device to play a notification or music.
