Has anyone successful integrated all three devices, and being able to control the upb lights, and nuvo audio with Amazon Echo?  I have Haikuhelper, space, Haiku, Space, Simple Sync (Roomie Remote) and Smartthings.   I would like able to control light switches with Echo.

The current HS3 HAI plugin is not finished.  It connects fine to zones, areas and outputs, temperature and humidity sensors and buttons.  (IE: today you can control buttons via Homeseer 3 / HAI plugin).

 

Homeseer 3 today integrates with the Amazon Echo, Alexa application and Kinect application for automation integration.

First of all, I only have a limited knowledge of Homeseer.   So,the fulfillment of your requirements, (UPB control & Nuvo audio control) will probably depend on "how finished" the Homeseer HAI plugin is.  If the plugin is complete as far as UPB and Nuvo is concerned, then you shouldn't (in theory) have any problems integrating Echo to control lighting and audio.  You may want to post your request for info on the Homeseer forum in the HAI subsection.

Thanks for the quick response. I'm little confused, I thought there is a plugin for HS3 Pro version already?

Here is the thread related to development of the plugin.

 

And some images relating to what is getting worked on:

Been playing a bit here with running W10, Kinect, Alexa application and the Homeseer 3 touch screen application.

 

Homeseer now has the Amazon Echo plugin running such that you can add that to the mix above.  My preference right now is to utilize the Kinect for automation stuff.

 

Here is a screen shot of streaming live TV, HSTouch and Homeseer speaker on a mini Intel quadcore baytrail connected to a 17" multitouch screen (with a kinect over the top of the screen).  I can ask Alexa a question and tell the Kinect to push a button on the touch screen or just run an automation action.
