Not for the moment, maybe I'll try to develop my own fibaro skills for Alexa through an Azure Function.

Hi tony i use it for numerous announcements now never lets me down, i just send the relevant token to a global variable and then the ijpuk lua with a small modification to trigger the announcement

Hi @magicman and thank you for your feedback, I've started the implementation last weekend and it's working really well ! did you have a solution for dynamic annoucements like the temperature ? It's straightfowrd for static annoucements but don't know if it's possible to do something about dynamic ones.

Do you have an idea?

yes just use the fibaro.temperature."value" to update a global variable then on that global change run a routine using a token generated from ijpuk to announce the level reached. for example when temperature reaches 23 degrees trigger your global and announce "Temperature is now 23 degrees.". hope that makes sense? . im working on being able to send any value ;)

where to get the LUA scene?

 

is there a way to send custom text? I have no premium account yet, but so far I can only trigger the default "someone is at the front door"-announcement

 

Edit: ah, I see, I need to use Alexas routines to trigger a (custom) announcement... but it's not possible to send a custom announcement through the API, right? I have to predefine the announcement, right?

 

Edit 2: ok, found the LUA scene too, it's here

Sorry for the late reply.  You are right, the doorbell is only the triggering action, this action can be to start an Alexa routine or sound a doorbell chime.  It's through the routine that you set it to play an announcement you define.

you can release this with a raspi and node red, install 10 der fibaro-devices and make some flows its veray easy and works great.

Hi @Magicman, did you already succeed in passing a global variable in Fibaro to have it used in the TTS of Alexa through the use of the ijpuk Api  (passing a dynamic variable) ?  Thx !
