Excellent work guys! I am loving my VOI already!!! I created one scene that controls both ezlo and alexa devices all together! Love it!

To confirm, this is still an option only for the Beta mobile apps? Also, when will this become available for use in a browser?

Only for beta app users and for users with any new Ezlo hubs or a Vera edge running the pre-alpha Linux firmware

Hi,

Yes, for now Ezlo VOI™ is available in the Beta mobile apps, which soon will be officially released - it will be announced in the community.

Exactly as @Pabla pointed out, you need one of the above hubs to use Ezlo VOI™.

We are working on it, we’ll announce in the community once we’ll have it.

Team, I got my Vera Edge updated to the latest beta today and also updated to the beta iOS app.

Unfortunately the Ezlo VOI enrolment doesn’t work for me, I get the following screens only.

I just updated to 3.35 and I still don’t see any options to choose from. I’ve force closed the app and this made no difference.

Edit, ignore me, I didn’t log out and back in,

Interesting, that worked but I have 2 Alexa’s listed. Time to go read the doco on how to use it. :sunglasses:

Hi,

Thank you for reporting this, it is a known issue and we are working to fix it. At this moment you can do the enrollment more than one time with the same account and this will create duplicate Alexa/Google devices.

I think I got impatient and clicked the allow button twice.

Is it safe to delete one of them?

Team VOI has stopped working for me, the device in the dashboard now shows “can’t detect device” and manual or scene based commands do nothing.

Manual commands show the ok message but don’t do anything.

Ideas?

Is it safe to delete one of them?: can’t delete it in this version. We are fixing it so that you can delete it in the next version…

Voi stopped: Yep, mine stopped too…the service had a bug that caused this…they restarted the service, its back up…and the bug is scheduled to be fixed on monday.

We will put the VOI status here https://status.getvera.com/ (once its ready)… (this status page is posted in our forums here … About the Platform Status category , this way you can have visibility to all our operations)

Cool, I’m glad it wasn’t just me.

It’s a fun service to play with, I’ve been moving routines over from Alexa to my Edge for those items that don’t have Vera integration and so far I’m liking what I see.

One thing that would be great would be virtual VOI devices. Eg create a VOI device for each of my Brunt Blinds with 2 states and the on/off Alexa commands configured as variables.

Then scenes could just call each virtual device without us having to re-enter the voice commands each time.
