    Thank you. I do appreciate your reply. I appreciate the accuracy however it's just a little too precise for me. 😊

    I think you are the first person to take issue with it, but I will bring it up to Rich on Monday to see what he thinks of it.

      What thermostats are capable of being set in .1 degree increments. Mine (Trane) is certainly not.

        For whatever reason StelPro thermostats can be. I think it's a Canadian or Euro thing as StelPro is a Canadian company. But they make a great Z-Wave thermostat for Baseboard heaters.

          Oh, where oh where to leave this reply? Here on a year-old thread, where it's very apropos, or on a new thread? Maybe I'll do both.

          {ahem} This is still a problem with my Alexa + Insteon Thermostat. I say "Alexa, raise the temperature one degree" and I'll get "First Floor Hall Thermostat 1 is set to 73.4 degrees." (That name is another issue...) I would be sanguine about this, were it not for the fact that sometimes it's not set to 73 or 74, as one might think, but 72 or 71 or whatever is 1 degree higher than the previous setting. Basically she carries out the command correctly, but her confirmation is off. Back when she didn't say the decimals, she was pretty accurate. (How ironic - "precision" leads to inaccuracy!)

          Anyone got a fix? Insteon? HomeSeer? Amazon? Buehler? Buehler???

            So this is the first seeing this post. I’m under the impression HS can use the Amazon Dots or whatever as HS Voice Control units natively not needing connected to the Amazon Cloud. Yes?

              No, all Alexa voice control is messaged from HS3 to Amazon and back.

                  macromark RJS Is there any particular reason this skill cannot be enabled for Canada? I'm only getting the runaround from your help desk.

                    Are you going to ever add features your customers want, like TTS (HS sends text to Alexa to speak)?
                    Ignoring customers long-standing feature requests is driving us away. HS4 does not show signs of solving any gaps your customers have asked for, for years. Requiring us to use Hubitat and Node Red for these things will only make us want to switch platforms completely

                    I suspect this will go unanswered or some short BS non-answer like it usually does, just proving my point further and the lack of caring and/or courage of the HST team.

                      You may wish to read this thread as to the probable reasons why:

                      Also I feel sorry for RJS who has absolutely nothing to do with the HST team. Your pointer should be RJH

                        Admittedly, this discussion is far above my pay grade, but some quick scanning suggests to me that Amazon offers a free API that will handle TTS and STT. I only know enough to get myself in trouble, but this really looks doable and doable without resorting to 3rd party kludges. What am I missing?
