    HA Bridge works much faster. Responses happen within around 1 second

    You can use a raspberry pi to create a ha Bridge between the device and alexa for faster interaction so it does not have to go up to the cloud

    A fellow user here, sells a bridge that finds "all devices and VD's" without any programing like you'd have to do with the ha-bridge. The bridge that @skarotech sells works with both Google home and Alexa "out of the box" with no programming whatsoever. I use it after growing extremely tired of how s***ty fibaro's integration with Google home was. 

     

    I have used the ha-bridge and it requires a lot of work just to get it installed... PM @skarotech for more info. 

     

    I can't go into much details because Fibaro frowns upon users trying to sell their own products. I know for a fact that there are a few other users of the forum that also use it.

    HA Bridge is a Jar file that is able to be run on a Pi/NAS/Windows machine that is always running. This means that all of your Alexa commands are run locally rather than using Fibaro cloud services which are quite slow

     

    As mentioned above the HA Bridge does take some work to get running so if you are not comfortable with doing that the Skarotech Bridge might be a better option for you

    the ha-bridge can be very difficult to setup and dial-in the settings.  once its up and properly tweaked, it runs nice.  but again, its not for the faint of heart.  with each version, the on and off commands slightly change a bit too...
