    There is no native way to send TTS to Alexa directly using Homeseer but there are several methods to achieve this. Node Red is one candidate:

      Thanks Jon00. I will check this out.

        I am having an intermittent issue where page "Jon00Alexa.aspx" won't load and, if it does load, where after creating new trigger and hit submit button, the page just grinds away and does not complete the operation. How to troubleshoot? Thanks.

          It's the age old issue with the Homeseer web-server serving .aspx web pages. It just locks up from time to time and a Homeseer restart is needed. Are you on Windows or Linux?

            Thanks. I am using Windows 10. If I leave HS3Pro alone for awhile, come back, I can generally load the page, without having to restart HS3.

              I am creating some VLANs on my network and was wondering if I have the amazon devices on a separate VLAN from my HS3 server, would your alexa helper still work? Does the alexa helper have to access the devices locally?

                It's not if my helper will work rather whether it will work with the Homeseer skill. If that is the case then yes.

                  OK. If I understand correctly then as long as the HS3 server can access the the Amazon server and the Amazon server can access the individual devices then it would not matter if the HS3 server and the IoT Amazon devices are on separate isolated LANs. Is that correct?

                    It's more if MyHS can talk to Homeseer and the Homeseer Home Automation Plugin can talk to Amazon servers.
