Best PI to turn on Events w/ Alexa?
It appears that the Alexa PI by Spud, is used to add microphones and speakers without using an Echo. I just want to start and stop Events in HS3Pro. Do I still need the Alexa PI for that?

If you have an Amazon device then no plugin is needed as it's all build in to one of the skills.

Got it to work.

Now, Iíve got a bigger task.....
I have an Arduino Uno that Iíve set up to talk X10 protocol. I use the Arduino PI and two dimmable and one On/Off Devices across 3 Outputs on the Arduino. One dimmable device is set to select HOUSE (A thru P), the second selects UNIT (1 thru 16), and the On/Off selects the FUNCTION (ON/OFF).
Iíve been able to pre-select one of the X10 devices in HS3 and set it up as a Light in the Alexa app and turn it on and off. I would like to set up several X10 devices in Alexa to turn on/off. However, Alexa only sees one Arduino output and the pre-selected X10 device. Is there a way to set up the other X10 devices?
