When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Alexa can't find Macro (using Broadlink RM2)
« on: March 23, 2017, 06:27:13 am »
Hello!

I am currently trying to create a Smart Device to open/close Netflix with Alexa using the Broadlink RM2 bridge.


What I have done so far:

RM Plugin App:
   - Connected the App with my RM2+
   - Activated Alexa Bridge
   - Added a Macro with the name "Netflix":
      Send "TV On/Off"
      Delay 8 seconds
      Send "TV right"
      Delay 3 seconds
      Send "TV OK"
   
   ("TEST MACRO" works)

   - Added "Netflix" as Alexa Device:
      ON: Executing Macro: Netflix
      OFF: Send "TV On/Off"

   - Share Data: The device "Netflix" has been found by Alexa under Smart Home/My Devices

Now my problem: After saying "Alexa Netflix on", I get the respond: "Skill not found" eventhough I can find it under My Devices.

Thanks in advance!
