Adding support for Alexa Smart Home Skill V3

Henrik Ahlén shared this thanks 17 months ago

The Alexa Skill for Zipato is really nice, but I guess it is using the old version 2 API for the Smart Home API? There is a version 3 (V3) of the Alexa Smart Home Skill API available now and it would be great if the Zipato Skill would implement it.


Specifically what I am missing is being able to use Alexa enabled groups and getting status changes pushed to Alexa.

When i am connecting to my US account i can use the skill in french ,when i am connected to my french account i cannot use it in any language due to "geographical restrictions"

Can you please explain what are the rules for thsi and how we can manage to get this skill working with alexa in France in French ?

Did this v3 skill ever get released? Is the lack of this the reason that Alexa seess my Zipato based lights as "other" and my Tradfri lights (Tradfri hub too) as lights?

Why "Turn off the lights" works with Tradfri, but not Zipato?

Communication here doesn't seem to be the best recently.

· Alexa has been very popular lately. It is awesome. Alexa is still the most compelling voice control platform, and the new and improved Echo is better-looking than the original. To know how to connect it with your email service read the blog post Delete AOL Account
