Well after having an Echo for 3 days my wife is in love and I completely understand why.  With respect to home automation control, the Echo is to phones what phones are to old keypads.

 

I think Cyaneous should look into an app that bridges form the Echo to Space to allow voice control.

 

Just food for thought.

I also have the Amazon ECHO - It would be a wonderful interface to the HAI / Leviton system.

It would also be a second app to generate revenue.  The combination would be stellar for HAI owners.

You could call it ECHO Helper.

We're hoping to allow that sort of integration directly using the new Space Server. No additional products should be necessary (besides the Echo device itself).

Looking at the Alexa Skills Kit, it seems like the two deployment choices are Amazon Lamba functions or a Web Service that is hosted on your own endpoint. The latter requires a certificate signed by Amazon for production deployment. I'm curious how that could be translated to talk to an individual Space Server running inside my home network.

 

I guess the "Space Server Echo Web Service" could issue a push request or some other mechanism that would be received by my own private Space Server instance which would then interpret and send the request to the OmniPro.

 

I'm a developer and I'd love to help work on something like that. If you can get me a Beta of the Space Server, I might be willing to help work on the Echo integration portion.

Update:

 

I have it working. I am using software that emulates a Phillips Hue and just sending commands to the Helper. IT works for a simple switch with on/off/dim levels at this point.

 

You can find the code that I am using at github @ pwd

I've been using Homeseer to integrate Echo and HAI. Not perfect, but not too bad either. You can trigger custom events although it's a bit awkward (for example, you might say "Hey Alexa, tell homeseer to run the event 'close garage doors'"). It's still pretty cool to turn lights on and off, and close the garage doors with your voice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
