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.

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.

Hi Avi, I am using the same switch and app, I was wondering if you ever managed to get your shutter partially closed/open?
