Communication between amazon echo and Fibaro using Node-RED
matispf84 posted a question in Amazon AlexaHi, tired of Fibaro's poor skill at Amazon Alexa (never connect, it's slow) and the HABridge (we must pray for Alexa to find the devices, it is very random, it works when it wants, it duplicates devices). For all that I decided to try and do tests with Node-RED. And now I can say that it is fantastic, there are no limits to create. If you are interested I leave more info. Now I can control the lights, turn on and off, change the intensity, change the color, execute scenes of Fibaro and many things, all without depending on the official skill or any third party Bridge. I used: * https://nodered.org (Installed in Raspberry) * https://www.amazon.com/Ben-Hardill-Node-RED/dp/B01N0D97FZ (Node-RED alexa skill) * https://alexa-node-red.bm.hardill.me.uk (You have to create user and then create all the devices and scenes) * "HomeTable" global variables in HC2

[SOLVED]Amazon Echo Dot can’t discover my devices
hongsit posted a question in Home Center 2Hi, hopefully posted this in the right place. I had a Home Center Lite and my Echo Dot was setup with all my fibaro devices and it worked great. I’ve recently migrated to a HC2, removed all my devices from HCL and added them in the HC2 one by one. Setup my HC2 with remote access and registered in my Fibaro ID. In my Alexa app I removed all my previous devices from the HCL (had to do this via as it won’t remove the via the iPhone app) and tried to discover the smart devices again. However, Alexa can’t find any of my devices in the HC2 and can’t find any scenes either. my network is ok, noth8ng has changed in that respect. Does anyone know if there’s a current issue between amazon and Fibaro? ive tried rebooting both Echo and HC2, removing HC2 from fibaro Id, reconfigure devices, disabled and enable fibaro skill, all of this and in different orders. Don’t really know what else to do or try, can someone with the same setup check to see if yours are working? I’ve had experience downtime with the service before, so hopefully it’s just that. Hope someone could confirm so I can stop wasting my time on this and start writing some Luca scripts
Hello, For all those who want to improve the sound quality of Amazon Echo Dot - Alexa, it is possible to customize the equalizer. How that!? Command: Alexa, turn up/down THE bass/midrange/treble. Example: Alexa, turn up the treble. After that, volume (white circle) will grow up with treble and sound volume. To check bass improvement, try with one hand on device (for vibrations). With few commands the sound will be much better! I assure you. I waiting for feedback.
alexa wasnt able to finish the action
wookiebeater posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHey all, Im trying to get my amazon echo dot to communicate to my home centre 2 . i have linked the two skills and i have confirmed i have remote access enabled and am running V4.140. I haven't been able to discover any new devices in the alexa app, but alexa can see my home centre. when i ask her to perform any action she just responds with " i wasnt able to finish the action" . I did notice my fibaro ID and my local super user on the HC2 have the same usernames, but different passwords (i cant set them the same) . does anyone know if this is my problem, or what else the problem could be?
HABridge vs Official Fibaro Alexa Skill
Guest posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi Guys I'm curious to understand if people have any view on using HABridge versus the official Fibaro Alexa Skill for voice integration I've been using HABridge for quite a while on a Raspberry PI3 and that is linked to my Fibaro and works well, but is limited at times in terms of voice commands, whereas the Fibaro official custom skill seems to have a wider voice offering However HABridge runs locally on your network and doesnt rely on the Fibaro infrastructure to get to your HC2 whereas the Fibaro Alexa Skill does.. Any views? Thanks Andy
After the release of the official Alexa skill for Amazon Echo, a number of us are unable to "Discover Devices" after successfully setting up the skill and connecting the Amazon account to Fibaro ID I wanted to open a thread to specifically debug this issue, as I accept that Amazon currently only supports (officially) US, UK and EU, and I was expecting that some restriction of cloud to cloud service maybe implemented from the multiple data extraction points involved in the layers of this integration... . However a number of UK forum users have also experienced the same. Therefore, I list the following steps I have undertaken to date without success in the hope that we can identify a fix/workaround, or simply discover that we should stop trying as it is possible that certain unsupported (officially) use cases won't allow (in the hope that this is the reasoning behind the "Custom Skill" Hardware - I am in New Zealand and also have a setup on a bench in Australia - Echo devices (both "Echo" model - Not Dot) Software version 5264 - Both using HC2 on v 4.120 - I use the remote access via Fibaro ID as designed - No Port forwarding or alternative setup With the above in mind, there are no setup configurations that are outside of what would be considered "correct" in terms of system design. The following is a list of steps i have taken to try and remedy the issue. - Reboot everything in various order (Network, HC2, Echo ) - Remove multiple layer network structure (disconnect access points and only use router) reconnect everything from scratch including forgetting known networks - Reduce Fibaro ID remote access to a single HC2 (rather than multiples) as the "Alexa tell/ask Fibaro to list Home Center Devices" appeared to not function - Fresh install of Alexa app (have to use device with US iTunes account) - Full reset (deregister AND reset button) of Echo - Checked Discover Devices still worked with other skill - (Logitech Harmony had no issues) To this point no success. I read in another post that a user found "alexaProhibited:true" somewhere in the REST API - I couldn't find it in mine. Things left to investigate: Potentially there are some port (UDP/TCP) access issues as Alexa is largely driven through outside communication Will send this detail to support to see if the developers can let us know if it is, in fact, due to restrictions driven from the Amazon build requirement If the above is the case, can we expect a workaround in the "Custom Skill" ? So now we open up the floor.. Let everyone know what you have experienced and add some value to see if we can debug effectively as a community.... Keep the thread clean and relevant to the task... pages of "+1's" are annoying to work through and voicing general dissatisfaction or opinion, while valued, is not what this thread is for
Amazon Echo Dot & HCL - Devices offline
Stephan Smit posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesI've activated both Fibaro skills last night and successfully linked the Echo to my Fibaro HCL. I was able to control all connected devices through Alexa. This morning Echo indicate that all my devices are offline even though my HCL is online and fully functional. I've disabled the Fibaro skill and reconnected again with no luck. Anyone have an idea how to get this fixed?
Two HA bridge requests submitted to BWS
AutoFrank posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceHi, I just wanted to let the forum know that I have submitted two requests to BW Systems for the HA bridge 1) Extra verbal commands - There was reference to activate/deactivate and run/stop in the Git documentation so I asked for clarity on that. I also ask for Open/Close for http requests 2) Speaker control of the echo device itself - volume up/down and mute I'll let you know what the response is _f
Hi after trawling through a few sites and you tube videos i managed to get Amazon Echo to work with HC2. so i decided to write a small-ish tutorial to make life easier for anyone else that wants to do the same. Download the instructions from http://www.yorkshireautomation.co.uk/echo i have put the Raspberry Pi image file and a pdf of instructions there and it takes about 20-30mins and you are up and running..... Video Below: Thanks all and Enjoy!!!!
Amazon Echo/Dot official fibaro Plugin
AutoFrank posted a question in Home Center 2Hi Fibaro Admin Can you share your timeline for the availability of your amazon echo/dot plugin for the HC2 The previous development/thread was deleted and even though I don't fully understand the "for safety reasons", I am more interested in your timeline (even for a beta). This device has the potential to change HA and will be an revolutionary addition to the HC family. Could you open up the communications on this topic as I know I am not the only one interested. Thanks in advance Frank
lennypenny posted a question in Scenes and InterfaceSonos has started recruiting BETA Testers for August and from the questionaire, it seems clear that we will finally see SONOS integration with Amazon Echo and Echo Dot. This same questionaire asked whether one has "home automation" and things like NEST and VERA were on the list but not Fibaro
JamieSonegoAus posted a question in Home Center 2when will we see Fibaro on this list? https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_5?fst=as%3Aoff&rh=n%3A13727921011%2Cn%3A!13727922011%2Cn%3A14284863011&page=5&bbn=13727922011&ie=UTF8&qid=1484481701
HA Bridge REST calls for Amazon echo
icedfusion posted a question in Other Devices / Third-party devicesHi All, I have the HA bridge setup all nice on my linux server, but I do not know much about REST commands and how to issue them. I have setup HA Bridge to set some devices on/off etc but I just cannot seem to be able to get HA Bridge to send the request to modify a global variable. I have verified that modifying the variable works using the api's at http:<my fibaro ip>/docs However, when I try to setup what I think is similar, it doesn't work, from the picture below, is there something obvious that I am missing? (what I am trying to achieve is to run a scene based on this variable changing - if there is another way to run a scene via the HA Bridge, the please do tell!) Cheers ice.
