How to control Alexa

So everyone seems to want Alexa to control the Home Automation system.  I want it the other way round.  

 

I would like to run a scene which told Alexa to play the radio without me saying Alexa, play Radio 2.

 

I've not yet found a way of communicating with Alexa other than by voice!

  • If only the door bell could be connected to the Fibaro which ran a scene which told Alexa someone was there.

     

    May be Alexa II (if only it existed) could receive incoming http requests....

    Some news, update?

    I have Amazon Echo Dot gen 2 and HC2 (v 4.143). It is possible to make a scene for Alexa to play a radio station when just i come back home?

    In this case you need to go to Alexa forum and ask Amazon to add this feature.

    Thank you for answer.

     

    You understand correctly. What is IFFT triggers?

    Sorry for my ignorance. :D

     

    If you can give me an example for how can I do this!?

     

    I want a very simple scenario....

    When i leave the home status become away. When I come back, status away and activate the trigger (door sensor is open) I want to play music after 30 sec...

    I don't think you can trigger Alexa externally (from HC2), what I meant is that may be some IFFT feature could help.

    May I suggest to use AudioCast M5 device to play radio station or any other playlist which can be activated by HC2.  

    Virtual Device available as well. (not plugin)
