I have not done this myself, but I think it can be done with a mix of Smartthings, a Zwave temperature sensor, and IFTTT recipe.

History show that Alexa is hearing correctly. I can turn the light to any percentage I ask but whenever I ask for a simple on or off I get “your provider couldn’t do that.”

Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexa plugs controlled by a thermostat
« Last post by andym on March 09, 2019, 11:19:13 am »
Hi, I have just installed infrared heating panels which I am controlling with Alexa plugs.  I want to control them via a thermostat, rather than just having them on or off.  Does anyone know if there is one on the market?

Thanks

Echo Tips & Tricks / Is anyone having problems setting up the default calendar?
« Last post by bucholz on March 08, 2019, 07:29:47 pm »
I used to be able to add events to my Microsoft Outlook calendar. Now it just says set up your default calendar in your app; but I have the calendar check in the app, and it still can't add any items.

Also make sure the heater smart plug is configured as a switch and not a light.

in order to create a group, you must already have names for each device within that group.  just use that name and tell the individual device to turn on/off

Amazon Echo Discussion / Controlling devices independently
« Last post by keiron99 on March 07, 2019, 02:47:40 pm »
I'm relatively new to Alexa and have also recently installed Hue lighting and a few smart plugs in my home.

In our Conservatory, I have a main ceiling light (Hue), a lamp (Hue), and a heater connected to a smart plug.

They are all in a Group called "Conservatory" which I can control from my Alexa app.

I also have an Echo dot in the room, and this is where it goes a bit wrong.

When I say “turn the conservatory lights on” it turns on the lights, the lamp, AND the heater. I just want it to turn the main light on, not the lamp or heater.

When I say “conservatory lights OFF”, it turns off the lights, the lamp and the heater.

How do I get the Echo dot to control them independently?

I agree.  The ads for ring pro make it look like it's an instantaneous connection and video but it lacks terribly,
