Dear Beta participants,

Thank you all for participating during the Vera Skill for Amazon Alexa Beta Phase. We truly appreciate your continued beta feedback and enthusiasm.

Our vision for all Vera products and services is to work closely with the Community to shape the best experience for everyone. During this testing phase, we have been reviewing the invaluable feedback provided by all of you.
Although Closed Beta Testing has come to an end, please continue to post your feedback on our Vera Community forums.

Important Notice: All the users that participated in this Beta will be dropped from the existing Vera Development Beta Skill in the following 3 weeks.

To be able to use all the awesome new features of the Vera Skill, make sure you’ve installed the LIVE version by searching and enabling Vera Skill from your Alexa app. (Note that you will only be able to find the Live version of the Vera skill once your Beta skill will be terminated by Amazon)

Is there new functionality for Alexa?

Will unlock with verbal PIN finally work?

Being able to trigger Alexa routines from Vera device’s states would give a lot of extra functionality with probably the least Outlay or investment

Would be nice to ask the status of a device such as “is the garage light on” or “is the front door locked”.

On that topic, is there an Amazon page that lists all the possible features of the API?

And get the status of door and window sensors.

I’m confused. I’ve been using the Alexa Vera Control for a while now. What’s the difference with this Vera Skill?

Thx

We have a number of users which continued to use the development skill version of Amazon Alexa. Since the beta program has ended, we’ve been working with Amazon to transition the users to the public skill.

Development beta skill is not always the latest iteration since some of the new changes are not going yet through a beta program.
