      The Smart Home skill is currently available to Canadian accounts.

      We haven't added anything additional to the custom skill as yet, as they retired the process we use that allows us to parse the text in HomeSeer.

      It can still be used as we are grandfathered in to the old process.

      The skill needs to be redesigned if anything is to be added, but it will still not support other languages as the commands are parsed in HomeSeer.

      A french additional is possible, but we won't be doing it in the near future.

          It's not so much a language addition as an account area addition.

          By adding Canada, it allows people with a Canadian account to link to HomeSeer.

          Just how the echo interprets that is up to Amazon (Do they recognize French/Canadian? I don't know)

          As for the addition of french, it will allow people with a french Amazon account to find the skill in their app list.

          If you're a Canadian who speaks french, you may need to have a french Amazon account (once we activate that portion of the skill) in order to converse with the echo in french.

              https://www.amazon.co.uk/ is for accounts in the UK.

              Whether they have incorporated french into that Amazon area is something they handle.

              If you can't get events to work, you may need to just start with one, then add them as you progress.

                  I'm aware.

                  That should not have anything to do with your problem with events.

                    The same as Canada and France goes for Holland. Recently Alexa also was introduced in the BeNeLux. I also would like tot be able tot change my Amazon account to The Netherlands to be able tot use the localized features of Alexa. I Am unable tot do so since the HS smarthome skill is not available in my region. The language should not be an issue since Alexa only understands and speaks English in this region. What I found intresting is that the Smarthome skills of the other vendors where available from day one. This makes me wonder if a vendor like Homeseer would be able to make their skills globally available instead of having to enable it for every single region. I already posted this question earlier on the board and emailed support but didn't get a response unfortunately.

                      For this moment, i use the https://www.amazon.co.uk/ with my french Alexa and HS3

                      I can power on and off all my device, but no chance with events

                      I wait for the skill in french

                          Hello

                          at least we are already three french users who are waiting for the update of the skill with the french language.

                            It seems a skill for french will never exist!

                            As you can see from the answer received from Homeseer, skills for non-english speaking countries aren't even considered.
                            As far as I am concerned, I consider HS3 not anymore compatible with my needs and I guesss with a lot of other's!
                            I am very disapointed: hs3 WAS such a good software!

                            Salut!

                            Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am not sure that we are looking to create skills for other languages just yet, but I will be passing this feedback along to the appropriate engineer to see what we may be able to offer.

                            Best,
