Hi - can you try again? I was making some backend changes, which may have affected service for period of time
Looks like it all works again. Thanks!

Madgeni:
I have trouble in understanding how to set this up. Is there any tutorial to explain from scratch how to set my rapsberry running Domoticz?
I also followed some steps but I got lost in the process regarding the SSL certificate. One of the requisites is to have a domain, how can I create it?

Sorry for asking rookie questions, but I love experimenting and do things myselfs I did a lot already but I want to have as a goal the intrgration of my domoticz with Alexa as a goal. But I have some challenges on how to get to the part to make my domoticz server visible on the net as well as getting the details to enter in controlicz.

Thanks in advance for your support.

Hi, and welcome.
Https is on by default, so you just need to forward your https port to your router. Maybe change the port number to something else .
You don't *need* a domain, but makes life easier, especially if your external IP can change. Try noip.com it's free ( and v easy).
Once you have that, the instructions on controlicz.com should be enough, but any issues, drop them in here.

Hi Madgeni,

Works great, thanks!

However, I use my own domain with a reverse proxy routing internet traffic either to my Apache or domoticz web server. For Domoticz I use the "-webroot domoticz" option and the reverse proxy configuration is configured so that https://mydomain/domoticz/ passes all traffic to Domoticz and vice versa.

Unfortunately controlizc.com currently doesn't seem to support this (host: mydomain/domoticz/).
Would be great if controlicz would support this.

Hi Ian - can you email me (via the Controlicz profile page) - there's a few people here using proxies, they've worked around it, but i should look to see what can be achieved.

Hi, I've successfully connected a fireplace with Domoticz, using the RFX-TRX433E, which acts as a remote (G6R-H4T16) for the fireplace.

I have made a switch in Domoticz (generic on/off) , which can send the on/off commands as well as fire up and fire down commands (for increasing or decreasing the flames).

And now I have installed Controlicz, through which I can let Alexa turn the fireplace on and off. So that's great! Thanks a lot to madgenies help!

But now there is this issue: I don't know how to let Alexa turn up or down the fire.

Commands that I tried:

turn up/down, set temp to.. degrees, set fireplace to 50%, lower fire place.... nothing seems to work. Has anyone any idea how to get the up and down functions working through Alexa?

Hi, password recovery does not work yet?
Always redirect to https://www.controlicz.com/200 ?

Thanks!

Hi - just reset my password using that method - seems to be working fine? What step does it fail for you?
