open/close curtain partialy
« on: December 28, 2017, 05:36:56 pm »
Hi.
I use Echo Dot to activate my shutter, the command is "Alexa turn on curtain" for UP and "Alexa turn off curtain" for down.
The shutter open fully and close fully.
I will appreciate if someone will help me with command to stop in the middle.
Thanks
Avi

What shutter do you have? Try "set shutter to 50 percent". If the shutter is set up like a dimmer, this may work. If not, try contacting the manufacturer of the shutter.

Not support the dimmer option

I use a Zemismart switch that I bought from Aliexpress (China)

I use JINVOO APP
There are 3 options at the APP -- UP, DOWN, PAUSE

then just say pause when it's halfway or in the middle like you want.

Try:

Alexa pause curtain

Alexa turn pause curtain

However you word it. The main word is pause.

Or just press pause on your app.
