Alexa now has scene control

The newest version of the Alexa app now includes “routines”. A routine is basically the same as a home control “scene”. The Alexa app will now allow you to create a routine(scene) to control any or all of your Homeseer Alexa enabled devices using a single voice command. For example, you can say “Alexa, turn on living room lights” and Alexa will run the routine you created with that name. The routine can include multiple Homeseer enabled devices (via the HomeSeer skill). It works extremely well for me.

This is a great enhancement to HomeSeer voice control with Alexa.

I found it this weekend and it's great.

I can now say, "Alexa, Goodnight" and it automatically turns on a device (bed) that triggers the Going to Bed event.
