You can send your Alea devices notifications from your Vera.
To do so, you need to install the “Notify Me” skill on your Alexa. After you register with notify, you will receive an Access Code. When you do, paste the access code into one of the 2 attached code lines (txt file attached). Past the entire line exactly as detailed in the (attached txt file) into a scene luup. When the scene is triggered, you will get the notice on your Alexa device. When you get the notice, just say “Alexa, read my notifications”.
I have provided two code lines that can send notifications to Alexa.
1.) The first line uses a curl instruction to send the notification. The notification is text and can NOT be a (text variable).
2.) The second line uses wget to do the same thing (less desirable method).
The 2 examples send the notification “There is someone at the front door”.
I added an attachment that includes code and instructions for very simple calls from any scene using the following format as example:
AlexaMessage(“Someone sole you car while you were gone.”)
Complete instructions and code are included in the 2’nd attached “VeraAlexaNotify.txt” file below.
UPDATE: 01/23/2019 (same as above but with time and date stamp:
I added another (version-2) today that includes Time and Date stamp automatically in your notification.
