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

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

    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?

    Jon:
    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 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.

    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:

    For HS4:

    Hello, Looking for the ability to have -> HS control -> Alexa speech.
    Can a HS event make Alexa speak?

    Does this ability exist and where would I learn more about it. Please direct me to any information on this, my searches so far have not located this information.

    I see in the HS log.

    TTS Speak (json : )
    Nov-25 2:26:16 PM Info Heard: talk
    Nov-25 2:26:16 PM Jon00_Alexa Script processing time: 80 ms
    Nov-25 2:26:16 PM Jon00_Alexa Response sent to Alexa: ''

    The - Jon00 HomeSeer /Echo Skill Helper for HomeSeer 3 & HS4 works and I am getting up to speed on using it.

    Thanks again,
    Jon00

    Thanks. I thought I had downloaded the latest. Nonetheless, I will start again.

    First thing, when you use "Tell Homeseer" do you see the text spoken in the Homeseer log?

    If not, check you have check_vcmd2.vb in your scripts directory.

    Hello Jon and all.
    I installed the script as per the instructions... HS3 PRO on a Win10 machine, setup the link in Jon00 Links to the ASP (and tried the aspx as well) and created a couple test triggers following the instructions.
    got to the part about selecting the Alexa Device and there are no options to select from. nothing is detected. I setup the identify trigger and when i ask Alexa to "tell homeseer to identify your location" i get a "sorry that command was not recognized" since the field is blank for "Alexa Devices Filter" it should just work right?

    there are no devices listed under deviceID in the INI and nothing in the HS log. what am i missing? a switch somewhere to turn it on?
    I have both skills already enabled in Alexa. and the "tell homeseer..." works for other device triggers.
    I swear I've read through the install 6 times before writing this. I've even gone though the INI manually after creating in the webpage.
    So am I blind (which is possible) or what?

    I have 1 Echo, 3 dots, and a Flex..... I would hope something is detected or found.
    ok....as I was just about to submit this, I decided to disable and re-enable the skill and retry .... now i get it where it sees the trigger, but instead of the "sorry that command was not recognized" reply,
    I get the response "I am undefined and my source is alexasource"... and now I have a long string to identify the devices.
    I attached the real name and it worked.

    So why did I still submit this? cause maybe someone else will encounter the problem and this will help them to fix it by disabling the skill and re-enablng.
    Cause I sure didn't see that in the instructions.

    Cheers
