  • Installation help

    Hi, I just downloaded and installed the Alexa plugin. Prior to doing this I installed the Microsoft speech and the english file as recommended. I am getting the error message Failed getting interface status. I can't help thinking that I must be doing something more. I am following the instructions in the forum.

    Also, a second question. Will I be able to talk to Alexa with this plugin and have it trigger events in Homeseer? I don't see that in the list of features. Thanks.

    please post your logs, there is probably more information about why the plugin does not start correctly.

    this plugin is not designed to control HS devices or events using Alexa, it is designed to replace the Amazon Echo device with speakers and microphones within your HomeSeer system.

    There is an official HS skill kit under approval that will let Alexa control your HS devices and events, and there is Thrag's script that let you do the same right now:
