afraid it's necessary for 2 good reasons:
1) it's slightly more secure - depends on the cert you use
2) I currently don't handle http requests, which kills Controlicz dead - it's on my list to fix asap :)

super easy to configure:
go here: /etc/init.d/domoticz.sh

double check this line exists (should be there by default now):
DAEMON_ARGS="$DAEMON_ARGS -sslwww 443" <-maybe change the port number to a higher number, then fix your port forwarding on your router. Restart Domoticz - update Controlicz

Hi Madgeni,

rickwilleme wrote:Hey guys,

It's Friday evening, so got myself some coding time.
Managed to install the Alexa - Domoticz integration ( https://github.com/madgeni/alexa_domo ) and it's actually working pretty well!
Only weird thing I notice is that I'm missing my ZWave dimmers in the discovered devices. Still able to control them with a scene, so got myself a workaround.

Any clue if I should do something special with my ZWave dimmers to get them discovered?

Thanks,
Rick

I'd need some more detail on the dimmers, to tweak the discovery. In that thread can you give me detail on their Type/Subtype etc from Domoticz?


The type is Light/Switch and the subtype is Switch.

Thanks for looking into this!

Regards,
Rick

Hey madgeni,
some smarthome skills like Philips Hue have the scenes in the scene section in alexa not in devices.
Are there differences or only for better view?

I would like to control my color hue lights with domoticz.
Switch on or off works in alexa but i can't set colors.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi there - as far as i can tell, it's cosmetic - i will take a look tho, as it would make it 'neater'

Yes, colours should/were working, so will take another look. I'll do them for Controlicz first..

Hi - not sure why they aren't being discovered - both type and subtype are standard. Is there anything in your logs? I'm assuming they are in Room Plans.

I saw your note about Controlicz on the FB page - not sure what you mean about testing? It's worth noting that these two are essentially the same ( i should know ;-) ) - also you say you've built your own skill, is this using my code?
Controlicz will probably be updated more rapidly, and obviously, relies on no/little effort on your side!
