    This will turn on my x10 device at B1.The xxxx are my log on credentials.What format of API would I use to address the Concord 4 panel via your plugin.
    Not familiar with the HA command protocol, you'd have to ask the author. I'm assuming it just sends a CAPI command to the HS device.

    For a virtual device, just click on the + sign on the device page. It will automatically create one for you. To find it look for location Unknown and fill in the details, there's nothing specific you need to enter except Device Name (what Alexa will look for) and making sure the Voice Cmd checkbox is checked. You'll need to tell Alexa to discover devices to find it.

    Not sure how the HA bridge may differ on discovery or control .

    Thanks for that. What does your configuration look like for your virtual device.

    This is just a simple example, just the trigger and the action. I don't actually arm the system, I use it more for monitoring access.
    You'll need to have created a virtual device named to what you want Alexa to respond to "Security" in this case.

    I've got the HA Bridge running on a Raspberry Pi already controlling X10 lighting but I'd like to extend this to the control the Concord 4 panel.
    You can Arm/Disarm using the HS3 actions in an Event. Haven't used the HA bridge so not sure how that would interface with HS3 events. Using the baseline Alexa/HS3 interface, you would create a Virtual device that is linked to Alexa and have it trigger an event to do Arm/Disarm. I have one that's called "Security", so I just say "Turn Security On/Off".
