Amazon echo and Roller shutter
« on: March 19, 2018, 10:31:23 am »
Hi Guys

Does the Amazon echo control also roller shutters and related scenes, or are these exempted as part of the security exempted items?

Roller shutters dont seem to be directly supported. You could use a virtual switch instead - so, get Alexa to trigger your virtual switch, and the virtual switch is then the trigger to start opening / closing your roller shutters.

Let me know if that doesnt make sense and I can expand.
