Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

After a few problems it works now but it would be nice to say "alexa, turn on projector" instead of using an additional invocation name. Did somebody manage to setup a Smart Home Skill where you dont have to use an invocation name? https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/alexa/alexa-skills-ki...

Re: repeating to make an event plugin?

Have you tried the jump if duplicate event?

It won't give you the three repeats you want but with some creative use it might get you what you need.

Re: Google Voice

I took a look at that code for ya, i see where the problem is. but i am sure it is not the only one. the plugin relies on a library called PyGoogleVoice which has not been updated since 2009. and it listed as defunct on google code pages. so Unless i write a whole new plugin and api this one is not...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

This is a limitation on Alexa. I wish Amazon would enable this feature also, I'd love to have her announce when a door is opened or if my vera is in away mode have her start a count down till my alarm goes off. I'm probably going to do this with my PC I just haven't had time to play with it yet. ar...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

I personally use a python script to parse eg.event.payload[0] which is where 'we're going upstairs' is passed along. With that you can have it look for 'going upstairs' and use just those words to trigger your event. Would you mind sharing your code, please? I have no idea how to start, but by copy...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

How can I define what utterance, or phrase, etc., Alexa should be expecting? I'd like to say, 'Alexa, tell INVOCATION NAME we're going upstairs', but it often gets it wrong with 'where going upstairs', or other stuff not even close. Is there a way to help her out? The easiest thing would be to say ...

Re: E-mail

Hey Pako, I'm not sure if you're still doing anything with this plugin but I had a problem that I had to modify it to fix. I was trying to send an email to an email address that had a + in the user name but the send email action didn't like it. I had to change your validate email address function to...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

I have been using the basic auth for about a week now with no issue. The Alexa make a great entry and exit point but I prefer to code in EG. Voice commands can be a bear to code but when it works it makes life easy. I've been playing with the python scripting to run commands based off the words I g...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

I haven't had much time to play with my setup but I just noticed you added basic auth support so I had to give it a shot and am happy to say it's working perfectly. I still have quite a bit to do before I'll say I'm done with my setup (if that's even possible) but this gets me one step closer. Thank...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEG

I've never used that before but from what I just saw of it wouldn't it be just as easy to create intents within the Alexa skill? I still have to look further into it so I can get a better understanding of what it is. If I were to create intents within the skill would they pass through the Lambda fun...

Re: Prevent Emulate Keystrokes from triggering System.UnIdle

I'm trying to make EventGhost minimize all Windows on System.Idle and then restore them on System.UnIdle. The problem is, when I emulate {Win+M} on System.Idle, it immediately triggers System.UnIdle. Is there a way to prevent this? Are you dead set on using {Win+M} to accomplish this? If not you ca...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEG

I think you are close. I have coded the node.js function to parsing the post for 'Return Msg: ' and then splitting that line for the response. Try eg.globals.ibl1_msg = 'Return Msg: ' + eg.event.payload[0] OR eg.globals.ibl1_msg = 'Return Msg: ' + 'Your playlist is playing' If you wanted it to re-p...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEG

What is your response if you just go to http:://IP/index.html?EchoToEG&test in your web browser? I have this python command to set the response to whatever I put in for testing eg.globals.ibl1_msg = eg.event.payload[0] when I go to the link you provided the web page displays test or whatever I put ...
