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 with Hive Multi Zone heating
« on: January 04, 2018, 09:57:09 am »
I have both Hive skills installed. Hive - Optimised for Smart Home and Hive with Boost and More.

I have two hive thermostats named Upstairs and Downstairs.

Some commands work eg Alexa what is the upstairs temperature.

However specifying Hive in the request fails.

eg "Alexa - ask hive how warm is my house" gives "you don't have the right Hive devices to fulfil that task"

and "Alexa - ask hive to boost downstairs heating" gives "which one shall I use". It then fails to recognise device name whether I use Upstairs or Downstairs.

From the Alexa log I can see that the phrases are being read correctly.

 Has anyone got Alexa working with multiple Hive heating zones?

I have hive with just 1 zone, (NO HIVE HUB)  as the Echo Plus apparently has one inbuilt. My philips hue bulbs work great, but the hive will not work through Alexa at all!!
