Hi 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 -

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:

4) download fauxmo_fibaro attached at this post and extract it.

5) edit fauxmo.py with notepad and add correct values to these lines:

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

Not that I can test this (as I don't have an Echo yet) but I think the Echo supports Weemo already and if you follow the steps in my post below you may be able to integrate your Echo, Weemo and HC2:
