Demo video is awesome. Way better than any other driver today

If Control4 builds on this it can absolutely skyrocket and hook in many new customers.

Will be re-evaluating whether I should invest in CTRL.

I already added the skill! No dealer required

Now I just need to update 2.9. Lights and thermostats won't require a dealer. Adding av devices will.

Sorry, @chopedogg88.  I appreciate the great work you did in getting us there early.  Are there features of your driver that Control4's Alexa Skill does not match?

Best regards,

David

Beware. Multiple Alexa's in close proximity will hear your commands, and all respond. I have one in my kitchen and one in my living room, about 40 feet apart.  Alexa responds to most commands I give, from both rooms, in stereo ;).

Can you have her voice go over the speakers if you hook the 3.5mm audio to your audio matrix?

Wonder if control4 will block it for non USA customers?

Actively - likely not. The 'problem' will be Amazon itself.

So, can C4 run Alexa on 2.8?

 

what do you do in Compiser once the skill is enabled?

I'm curious as to why they didn't integrate Prime music into the OS.  Would seem like a natural fit for Alexa to play seamlessly.
