There have been requests for many new and interesting features for the EchoSistant. We would love to develop them all, but we cannot work on all of them at the same time So we need your feedback on what should we tackle next:
Virtual Presence using Alexa - an interesting request came from @femwitjava to add a check-in/out for people coming and leaving the house. When arriving, have them say: Alexa, check in < Profile / Name > and when departing, have them say: Alexa, check out < Profile / Name >. This is an excellent idea for those without a location tracker. When creating a new Profile, you can enable a “virtual Presence”, which would generate a device (a virtual presence sensor) that can then be updated via ST app or voice (check-in/out command).
The second project, which we think is equally interesting, came from @greg - to have a guest PIN number that is timed to expire in X hours/days. This is also an excellent idea for those who have temporary visitors. You don’t have to give out your “master” PIN number, you set a temporary PIN, which automatically expires in a set number of hours or days. Again, in app and voice activated would be available.
Which Project should we tackle first
- Check in/out feature
- Temporary PIN number
