Hi all -
so, it's been really great working on this skill, and how it's helped some of you integrate Domoticz with Alexa. However, for some, the steps necessary have been a pain, and often, unworkable. With that in mind, i've been working on a 'true' Smart Home skill for Alexa.
To do so, i've had to create a site which allows people to store their credentials (in the same way all other smart home solutions do), which once you've registered, would allow you to enable a skill from Alexa, link it to your credentials, and you're done. I've implemented Oauth2, so again, you're passing an access token, rather than credentials.
The site is protected by a valid SSL cert (not self-signed), and your personal credentials on my site are either hashed, or encrypted, which means at least a reasonable amount of protection is afforded to you in terms of security and protection.
If anyone is interested, ping me, and i can add you to the Amazon Beta program to help me iron out any kinks. Functionality for Domoticz should be identical to the existing skill i've written.
