Title: Alexa and Virtual Panels
Post by: jarrodirwin on February 18, 2018, 05:07:55 pm
Hey,

I've just installed the Virtual Panel Plugin (http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,31128.0.html) and configured a panel with an array of buttons.

Just wondering if anyone has managed to surface the panel devices to Alexa and if it is possible to have Alexa trigger the buttons on the panel?

My use case is that I created a "TV remote" panel that has buttons 0-9, volume up, volume down, AV, TV and power off. Each button runs a Lua function. Clicking these buttons manually from the web/app interface works great. I'm just wanting to know if I can use this "remote" by saying something like 'Alexa, turn TV to channel 2' etc.

Any insight would be great.
