  • Homeseer working fine but not showing up in Alexa

    Got the garage door setup in HomeSeer and i can open iand close it fine. When i try to add as a Homeseer Skill in Alexa it is not found. Other devices in Homeseer are found in Alexa, just not the Garage door. Please help

    Thanks

    I'm not sure how to help with that, any integration with Alexa is handled by homeseer, not the plugin. The only thing that's required for the device to show up in homeseer is for the device status have the "Control Use" set to a supported Alexa setting, which the default value is ON for Open and OFF for Closed and this is supported by Alexa. If you've changed this, that may explain your issues.

        Enable Voice Command (checkbox) on the device configuration screen. Yours is disabled. Then use Alexa to rediscover...

            Glad to help. You can also change the Voice Command name or create virtual devices with custom voice commands to say "open" or "close" the garage door/gate/etc. That is what I did to get around telling her to "Turn On the Driveway Gate".

              Kevin, very new to this, which settings should I change to Open and Close, or how would I create a virtual device?
