Thanks to everyone for your feedback! Since EchoSistant Evolved has been released, we have received many requests for new features. The two items most requested for Profiles, seem to be, the ability to schedule Recurring Events with reminders delivered via audio (on remote speakers) or text via sms and Individual Device Control at Profile level.
Building on the popular feature of scheduling one time reminders, the Recurring Events would enable users to ask Alexa to schedule a “recurring or repeating reminder”. The EchoSistant would then, schedule the reminder using the cron scheduler. http://www.cronmaker.com
Individual Device Control: currently a Profile is able to only control group of devices - using the pre-defined groups, like lights, fans, etc or custom groups. But a Profile is unable/unaware of individual devices. This feature would enable control of any devices that are allowed to be used with EchoSistant but from an individual Profile. An example would be, Alexa tell Kitchen Profile to start a specific Harmony activity OR to turn on the Living Room Switch…
So which feature should we focus on, first?
- Individual Device Control from a Profile
- Ability to schedule recurring reminders
