[APP][Pro] Amazon - Alexa

@Jamie Thx for this great App… For my opinion Its one of the best Apps are available for homey now! :grinning:

Now I can use my meross devices on homey without the way over IFTTT! That’s amazing!

Do you think you can add Window Coverings wich are connected to alexa too?

  1. SVG of the new device in the same aesthetic as the other icons I have.
    i sent you a PN with the pic
  2. An image of the device ideally 2000x2000px in the same aesthetic as the other images I have (white background etc).
    i sent you a PN with the pic
  3. The name of the device, and its average power usage.
    Echo dot with clock, 2,5W in average
  4. The unique identifier of the device, I can normally find these out with some help and a diagnostic report.
    if you tell me how i will help
  5. Someone to test each and every feature of the app upon new device and report back if any features
    do not work.
    i’m willing to do the tests

Hi @widameista the SVG supplied doesn’t match the existing icons and wont work in Homey :frowning: :

vs

how can i create the svg? i tried various online converters, but the result is not good.

other idea. as it is exactly the same machine as the normal dot (3rd) you can use the svg from the normal dot.

Hey Jamie thanks for the amazing app. Ive just added the sonos beam and had the same outcome as Rocodamelsheki results.
Just wondering on the smart light will colour change be added? All lights working great and dim capability.
Made a small donation for your hard work mate.

those conversion are fine as a start. then use a svg capable editing tool and get down to business :wink:.
if it was easy work than jamie would do it.

Play/Pause doesnt work with grouped items, just confirming that your Sonos one isnt in a group?

Will report back tonight m8

3.2.502

Has been released to the test channel, it resolves some issues with third part features

  • Removes Simon Says from Sonos One, Sonos Beam and Orbi voice.
  • Removes whisper and announce from Orbi voice
  • Removes ‘sounds’ from Sonos One and Sonos Beam

@Markus_F window coverings are possible but low on the priority list as I dont have a window covering which makes it incredibly difficult.

I could make an SVG out of it for you, no worries. :slight_smile:
Only @Jamie I don’t know how to get the ID :slight_smile:

If you restart the app, and wait a minute for the device to become available then send me diagnostic report along with the type and name of the device ill be able to hunt it down :slight_smile:

how can I add a device if it isn’t supported yet? Or can you actually find the not supported devices in the report? :open_mouth:

I should be able to find it in the report.

What about translations? I offer to work on the German version, if you provide me the English source file.

Works like a charm on my older Echos, will there be support for the Echo Studio?

Yeah I would love some help translating the app.

RE: The studio check out the FaQ

Just for the record: can there be 2x One in one group or is that also not allowed?
It’s a stereo pair u know

They can be in a group, but you cant control the media (play/pause) of a group from an individual device. As far as Amazon is concerned a ‘group’ is a completely different device, but only for media commands apparently.

I had a similar problem, you can set up alexa to ‘play to a group’ automatically when you ask for music on a specific speaker. "play to all upstairs by default’ my app will actually coorectly trigger it … but then you can no longer control the songs using the app and it can throw my app off …

I hope that explains it.

Ok. Tested with 2 One’s in a stereo pair: same result as above. Whisper and announce does also not work, just speak!
Not gonna unpair the speakers because that’s too much work. They are wall mounted and the mount itself does also have to be removed to reach the pair button.
If u want me to test anything specific then plz lemme know.
