Question Noobs questions about controlling UPB with Alexa

Has anyone done this, or know if its possible to control UPB lighting with Alexa on Amazon Echo?

I’ve got a house full of PCS Pulseworx dimmers and keypads. I was looking at getting a HomeSeer HomeTroller Zee S2 to run Spud's UPB plug-in and using a PCS PIM-U, then using the HomeSeer Alexa skill.

That should work so I can set it up and say things like "Alexa, turn off the kitchen lights", right?

Does anyone have any experience doing this?
What would the lag between commands and action be like?
Would dimming lights be supported by vocal commands? If so, to what granularity; can you say like 40%, or at least half or full brightness?

I just wanted to get some feedback/reassurance on these questions before ordering a bunch of equipment.
Thanks for any advice/information.

Currently I have some HAI dimmers & switches and my goal is exactly what your stating. Have not purchased the Homeseeer controller / software as of yet but from my understanding we should be able to control the lights with Amazon or even mobile. Hopefully we should get a response from someone soon to confirm that our goal can be reach using Homeseer.

I confirm that using this plugin and the Amazon Smart Home skill for Homeseer, you can control your UPB lights with Alexa

see http://board.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=180033

"Alexa, turn on my lights"
"Alexa, set my lights to 50 percent"
