I've had my Echo for about a week. Installed the Incontrol (axial) plugin and have been cleaning up my Scene names to make sure things work as they should. I already have some feedback and questions:
Alexa appears to be switching between trying to activate a device and activate a scene. In Axial I have a Scene called 'Turn the garage lights on' and sometimes Alexa tries to activate the scene, sometimes she tries to activate the device 'Turn the garage lights on'
Is there a clear deliniation between Scene and Device activation? I don't mind re-naming my scenes and/or devices to allow Alexa to recognize them better
Here are a few scenarios we are testing around the house:
'Alexa tell InControl to lock the Front Door' - Any ideas on labelling the front door lock (currently 'Front Door Lock') or the scene (currently 'Door Locked')
'Alexa tell InControl to turn on the front lights - Device = Front Lights, Scene = 'Turn the Front Lights on'
'Alexa tell InControl to turn the garage lights off - Device = Garage Lights, Scene = 'Turn the garage lights on'
Are these the best way to label things? Most have a Device and associated scene (On/Off or a warning if things are on at the wrong time of the day).
Thanks in advance!
