    i think being able to pass audible notifications would be a sweet feature.

      Looks like Amazon is working on something:



      Hopefully HomeSeer is signed up to get the 411 when Amazon releases it to developers...

            Are you speculating or have you actually seen the API or the feature documented? I will admit that I do not check daily, but to my knowledge as of a month or so ago this was not possible as I did not come across the api.

            Maybe I missed it....
            HomeSeer 2, HomeSeer 3, Allonis myServer, Amazon Alexa Dots, ELK M1G, ISY 994i, HomeKit, BlueIris, and 6 "4k" Cameras using NVR, and integration between all of these systems. Home Automation since 1980.

              I didn't look any further than a comment I read else where but this the on the developer portal.

                You can push notifications to your Alexa with the Notify Me skill (https://amzn.to/2DOsuor). It won't speak your message aloud without prompting, but it does make a "bing" noise and illuminate the LED ring to let you know you have a message.

                You can learn more about it at www.notifymyecho.com. The VB script I've successfully used with HS3 running on a RPi3 is as follows (you pass your message as a parameter to the script):

                Code:
                Sub Main(ByVal notification As String)
                  dim accessCode = "ACCESS_CODE"
                  dim host = "https://api.notifymyecho.com"
                  dim path = "/v1/NotifyMe?notification="+notification+"&accessCode="+accessCode
                  dim result = hs.GetURL(host, path, TRUE, 443)
                  hs.WriteLog("msg", result)
                End Sub
                Before you can use this, you must first enable the Notify Me skill and then replace the ACCESS_CODE string in the script with the one the Notify Me skill emails you.

                    Glad to hear. I'm still finding crazy uses for notifications, not all practical, of course. ;-)

                      I'm a little surprised because I expecting to have to modify the script to convert spaces into %20 since the parameter text is being passed as a URL.

                      Very nice... Thanks for sharing.

                        Thanks but do you place the script in your script folder or put it in the sub or function part of an event

                          I saved the script in my script folder (you then later have to select it as the script you want to run, of course). I left the Sub or Function box blank so it would, by default, call the Sub Main part of the script. Put your message in the Parameters box.
