  • Running Buttons and scenes question?

    I got my homeseer this morning and it's up and running with alexa in that I can turn lights on and off individually or in groups. So far so good!

    How to i get Alexa to run a button macro?

    Thanks

    The best way is to use a HomeSeer virtual device. We'll call it test button, but in the Voice Command field, we'll call it My Button:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	screenshot1.png
Views:	1
Size:	42.0 KB
ID:	1195872


    Now, create a HomeSeer Event that is triggered on that Virtual device change, to control your button:

    Click image for larger version

Name:	screenshot2.png
Views:	1
Size:	22.0 KB

    In the Alexa app, rediscover your devices.

    Now, you should be able to say:
    Alexa, turn on my button

      Great, I'll try that.

      One more question if I may. What about running a centralite scene? How do I ask alexa to do that?

      Thanks!
