Hi all, I'm in !! New Zealand and just encountered a problem with alexa voice control  -

Amazon echo has just been released (officially) and I received an email that stated I should change my amazon account to the.com.au domain with English(AU) as the language  preference. I've had my Dot in the C4 system for about 12 months having purchased on a trip to the UK. My Amazon account had always been.com (US) and shipping had been via a postal service. I didn't have the Epic driver  yet but am looking to add soon ( I have the native voice  scenes driver).

since making these two simple changes the Control 4 skill has gone and can't  be found and I can't enable it to run device discovery.

I've signed out/in on the app and lots of good things occurred, weather localised, flash briefing localised, etc etc but no Control  4 skill?? Tune in and Spotify also disappeared but after logging in/out again they came back, as did hydrawise. The other skill I'm missing is Ring  video doorbell?

Any ideas whether control 4 & Ring  will reappear in the skills if I wait for the cloud to update or are they only available to US/UK accounts??

Bugger had a sinking feeling.... Any idea how long this might be or would the Epic driver work?

Many thanks for the quick 👌

Hi, 

How does ring integrate with alexa? What commands can you give it? Assuming using blackwire ring driver.

Thanks,
K.

Without the blackwire driver you can enable the alexa skill and intergrate Ring with Alexa as per the details given on the website:

https://www.amazon.com/Ring-Video-Doorbell/dp/B01JTL2PYE

and/or you can intergrate with control 4 using the blackwire driver which gives the ability to programme off events triggered by Ring - typically 'presses' or ' motion'.

 

Hope this helps
