Guest posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi folks, I bought Echo on my vacation in US this week and decided to do an integration for Fibaro. After doing some research I made a decision to use WeMo bridge (thanks Chris - http://www.makermusings.com/2015/07/18/virtual-wemo-code-for-amazon-echo/)and bend it for Fibaro. Here is my first 'alpha' so far so good version, which automatically enumerates light devices and announces them using WeMo bridge. Install guide: WeMo bridge is a python script that runs on your pc or server or another python-equipped thing. Windows users: ====== Python installation (optional) ====== 1) download python 2.x (2.7.11), not 3.X !!! 2) Install python with launcher and add to PATH option 3) run command prompt with admin privileges and execute: pip install requests pip install json =========== fauxmo bridge:============ 4) download fauxmo_fibaro attached at this post and extract it. 5) edit fauxmo.py with notepad and add correct values to these lines: fibaro_ip = 'enter your fibaro local ip address' fibaro_user = 'your fibaro local user' fibaro_password = 'your fibaro passwrod' I recommend creating a special fibaro user just for alexa. Do not forget to assign device privileges for this user! 6) Save file, doubleclick it, or from command shell run: fauxmo.py You can add -d to the command line to show debug output 7) Bridge should run. 8) From alexa app, go to Settings > [Account]/Connected Home > Discover devices Alexa should find all light devices now 9) Enjoy! fauxmo_fibaro.zip
