Connect Domoticz (windows 10) to Amazon Echo

Post by KevinR » Saturday 08 October 2016 23:10

Hi,
I have Domoticz working on my Win 10 Pc - no issues re lights and window blinds, scenes and hand held remote controls.

I recently bought the Amazon Echo and have been looking across the web for examples of how to connect this to my Domoticz setup.

The examples I have found seem to centre on RPi & HA Bridge.

Does anyone have a working example using Domoticz (Win 10)?

My setup uses:

A dedicated Intel PC, running Windows 10
Domoticz ver: 3.4834 2016-03-02
RFXtrx433E
Transceiver type = 433.92MHz
Firmware version = 1002
Firmware Type = Ext2
Transmit power = 10dBm
Hardware version = 1.3

Any help would be appreciated.
Regards
Kevin R

Maybe you can try to run a small VM with Debian 8.5 on it.

Major thing who works on a pi, works on a debian machine.
Domoticz stable 3.5877 for real & Domoticz beta for test

Eventually got Windows 10 - Domoticz working with Alexa, via HA Bridge.

Lights, Switches, Roller Blinds, Groups & Scenes all work well and the response is rapid, 2-3 seconds.

I found HA Bridge much simpler than OpenHAB.

Hi freijn, I have used HA Bridge successfully - a bit fiddly, but works well.

I then converted to Controlicz, really simple, secure and works brilliantly.

Good support from Nick. I definitely recommend Controlicz.
