Alexa to control shutters, relay, AC, and scenes

Need Answer


I have Zipato, Zipatile and Alexa.

I can control lights (on/off) through Alexa.

How do I run scenes via Alexa?

How do I control the shutters, a relay (boiler) and my AC/HVAC (controlled by IR)?

just create virtual switches if they relays are not already showing up in the alexa smart home skill. Then use the rule creator in zipato to define how these virtual switches work.

Scenes can be done similarly, or just use the scenes as they appear in the smart skill, but remember that if issuing a command to a scene, you always need to turn it on. Even if the scene is an all off scene for example.
