Hey folks, I’m having issues with SHM disarming and arming when using both Alexa and the Classic app together. I’m curious how others have theirs setup.
My problem is that Alexa won’t trigger if it thinks it’s already in that state. For example, SHM is Armed through Alexa… Then I disarm through the ST app… Then ask Alexa to turn on security and it won’t because it thinks it’s already on. I have to ask to turn off security (even though it’s already off) then ask to turn it on and then it’ll actually turn it on.
I’ve tried two things…
A Simulated Switch that I have an Alexa routine turn on and off, and that switch is connected to a webcore piston to turn on and off security.
Two Scenes, one to turn on the Simulated Switch and one to turn off the Simulated Switch… Then created two Alexa routines, one to run each scene.
I can’t really tell if it’s Alexa or ST that are ignoring the action, as I would think the Scene route would would always execute.
