Communication between amazon echo and Fibaro using Node-RED


Question

Hi, 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:

    1) First you must install node-red in for example a Raspberry (

    2) An account must be created in Node-RED Alexa Home Skill Bridge (

    3) Once the account is created, you can start creating the devices and scenes that will later appear in the list of Alexa devices

    4) Add the Node-Red skill in Alexa

    5) Search for new devices and scenes.

    6) Now in Node-Red (Installed in your Raspberry) go to Manage Palette and add node-red-contrib-alexa-home-skill

    7) and ready, you now have everything ready to start programming and let your imagination fly ;D
    This is my project created for now...
