    Please read the User Guide before installing.

    Installation:
    • download the zip attached to this post and save it in the HS3 application folder in /updates3/zips
    • download the file named updater_override.txt attached to this post and save it in the HS3 application folder.
    • go to the "PLUG-INS > Manage" page and click the "Update Listing" button, then click "Additional interfaces > Test Plugin" and check the Alexa line.
    • click the "Download and Install" button
    • enable the plugin from the "PLUG-INS > Manage" page
    • delete updater_override.txt from your HS3 application folder


    Changes to v3.0.0.1:
    - Fixed plugin shutdown
    - Display a message error in config page when Microsoft Server Speech Platform Runtime x86 is not installed.

    Sweet.... Will be playing with it tonight. One question. What would be the attention phrase if you use it with the Kinect device? The one you assigned to Kinect?

      the attention phrase would be the one you assign in the Alexa plugin config page, which by default is "Alexa"

            Have you installed the Microsoft Speech Platform as explained in the user guide ?

            If so which one have you installed x86 or x64?

                If you want Alexa to trigger a HS event or to control a HS device, you will need Thrag's echo plugin (http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=176481) or the official HS Echo App (which has not been released yet)

                But since you are already using the Kinect plugin I don't see a good reason why you would want to use Alexa to trigger your events rather than the Kinect plugin?

                  Ok, I thought it was part of the functionality. I can live with that.. One thing I noticed that is doesn't know where it's at. I asked for the time and it gave me a different time???

                      go there: http://alexa.amazon.com/#settings
                      click on your device, and then set your zip code

                            Yes this is one of the goal. It is supposed to work right now, but I haven''t tested a remote instance so far. I will test and add some instructions to the user guide

                              not right now, but it's a feature I want to investigate, i.e use a homeseer speaker client or a media plugin as the speaker for the Alexa plugin
