  • I am currently trying to set this skill up, and all I get is a response from Alexa 'You are not authorized to use this skill'. I'm logged in using the same credentials with the Echo as I used to create the skill, any idea what I'm missing?

    • Hi,

      I have the bridge up and running and can control all my lights with Alexa. I did not install the skill because I didn't really need it. Coming from Vera, I was able to control my harmony scenes and devices, but I do not see a way to do it on this bridge. Is there a way to do this?

      Thanks,
      Andy

      • Hi,
        I'm trying to get this working and have failed at the first hurdle, setting up the HA Bridge.

        I run HS on Server 2012R2.

        I installed the JDK 1.8 to run.
        I run the java file and towards the end I get errors telling me the Upnp Response Port is in use, starting loop to find open port for 20 tries......then it gets to 50020 with the message: Address already in use: Cannot bind.

        I know little about java so any help would be appreciated.

        • A little progress but still not there.
          After a little 'fettling' I managed to get a page that has;
          HA Bridge Home MyEcho Help About
          across the top.
          After putting in my login details for Echo if I press the MyEcho tab I get to my echo account.
          When I press /HS3EchoPlugin.aspx?BridgeConfig and wait a while I get;

          Server Error in '/' Application.

          Request timed out.

              • I'm struggling!
                Creating the Lambda looks significantly different to that described in the instructions so I'm muddling through as best I can.
                When I get to 'create function' I get an error message; u is undefined

                Can anybody offer any help?

                • Had another go today;
                  I now get;

                  Unable to get property 'validateLinkInfo' of undefined or null reference

                  when trying to create the function in the Lambda setup.

                    • Hi,

                      I am new to Homeseer and recently get the Echo bridge up and running (Thrags). I am not currently using the skill as I don't want to use the MyHS service. I was wondering if there is a way to have the echo run an HS3 event just with the bridge. Does anyone know if this is possible?

                      Thanks,
                      Andy

                        Yes , you can do that using JSON commands

                        create a custom device this use this in the ON Button

                        http://HOMESEERIP:PORT/JSON?request=runevent&id=6220

                        change homeseer IP and Port , also change the event ID

                        You can find more commands here

                        http://www.homeseer.com/support/home..._with_json.htm

                          Thanks! Now I just need to read up on how to implement the JSON commands into the device.

                              Hmm, now I am confused. I am also using the HA-Bridge. No plugin or skill. Can you explain to me how to create the custom device and make it run the JSON?

                              Ah, I think I may now know what you are talking about when you say create a "custom" device. You mean to do this in the HA-Bridge interface right? If so, that is where I was getting confused. I was creating a virtual device in the HS3 interface.

                                use this as a guide


                                Manual add your device , name it and then put the URLs in the ON and Off buttons .
                                once done scan your devices again from Echo
