    Alexa

    I'm not sure if I am doing it correctly. What is the proper way to get this to work with Alexa?

    The plugin installed fine. I can control my thermostat from Homeseer. What I tried was I check marked Amazon Alexa Discovery for thermostat settings. Alexa finds the thermostat. When I tell Alexa to change the thermostat, Alexa responds to the change but the thermostat doesn't actually change.

    Plugin version 4.2.0.5 HS4 running on Windows 10.

    Thanks

    It looks like I'm not setting the Control Use by default on setpoint devices, perhaps. I'll add them to the devices in the next version (after the just-released 4.2.0.6), but if you want to take care of it now, you'll need to edit the heat setpoint and cool setpoint devices and change "Not Specified" to the appropriate control use (heat or cool setpoint):

    There are similar settings on system mode and fan mode, though on my system they're currently set correctly for those, so I suspect this was just an oversight when I changed the setpoint logic in the 3.X/4.X version(s).
