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.

Fauxmo not working
« on: September 10, 2015, 05:19:37 pm »
Has anyone gotten this Instructable to work? http://www.instructables.com/id/Hacking-the-Amazon-Echo/

The code runs, and the Echo discovers my devices, and the fauxmo code gets the ON/OFF requests, but the Echo doesn't like (or isn't getting) the response, and says "I don't know what went wrong".

The fauxmo code times out with "HTTPConnectPool(host='blah', port=80)" Max retries exceeded..."

Figured it out: the 'on' and 'off' methods call another URL, which I wasn't providing. Now I am.
Thanks, FabricateIO!!!

Could you elaborate on that? I am getting pretty much the same issue.
