Not sure if my title is right or not. More specifically how does Alexa relay the commands to SmartThings?
Here is what I’m trying to figure out. I recently added RGB and RGBW LED support to the ST_Anything project so it can be used for lighting. The RGB for example has a standard dimmer control (capability “Switch Level”), standard on/off (capability “Switch”), and a color control (capability “Color Control”). I can do standard stuff and it works fine:
“Alexa turn on the Kitchen Cabinet Lights”: Turns then on (same with off).
“Alexa set the Kitchen Cabinet lights to 60”: Sets the dimmer to 60
So I have a bunch of commands defined in the DTH (command “red”, command “green”, etc) with buttons for them. When I say “Alexa set the kitchen cabinet lights to Green” she says “ok” but nothing happens. Normally if its a command a device doesn’t accept it says “that device doesn’t support that” or something like that. Is it trying to send “green” to the device but its getting lost? Or is it not sending anything? How can I tell?
I’m guessing it can’t figure out “green” but is it possible to send something like that over?
