[RELEASE] Echo Speaks


#263

It seems the Eufy speaker its not supported. :frowning_face:


#264

I'm getting an error of
errorjava.lang.Exception: No response data exists for async request on line 2559 (asyncSpeechHandler) Everything seems to work fine just curious if I can fix this and if so how


#265

I get this frequently too.


#266

I think I fixed the error's I was getting by going into the app and cleaning up the devices that the app found that I'm not using or are no longer connected so far I haven't seen anymore errors


#267

spoke too soon same error


#268

errorjava.lang.IllegalArgumentException: No json exists for response on line 1016 (getBluetoothHandler)


#269

you can ignore them. it seems amazon is rejecting some of the connections for those calls(too many successive calls on multiple devices for your account)


#270

Sorry if this has been covered somewhere else, I searched the various threads ad nauseam to no avail. I'm transitioning over from Smartthings and I use Echo Speaks setVolumeSpeakAndRestore with webCore to do random messages for Hello and Goodbye triggered events, and I can't figure out how to do this with the Hubitat Rule Machine using Custom Commands. Help!


#271

In Rule Machine 3.0, you can now use “Custom Actions”, which also allow you to pass parameters to these custom commands from various devices. I believe Custom Actions are much more flexible than the old Custom Commands. Perhaps Custom Actions will help solve this issue? Just an idea...:thinking:


#272

Thanks for the suggestion. Alas, I’m not able to make work with Custom Actions either. I’m starting to wonder if it’s even possible...


#273

Even though you could make a Custom Command for setVolumeSpeakAndRestore, you would have to also put in the message into the custom command. As I like to use random messages I use Welcome Home app for arrivals and Departures app for Departures. In these apps he has settings to restore your echo speakers to a volume you set after speaking.


#274

Agreed... that's why I recommended Custom Actions, instead of a Custom Command. The Custom Actions allow you to pass in parameters to the device's custom commands. Still might not be perfect for all uses, but should definitely help with some! :wink:


#275

a naïve question: does Echo Speaks require a physical ST Hub (as I understood) or is it sufficient an ST account?


#276

Echo Speaks doesn't require an ST hub if you are using it with Hubitat.


#277

You don’t need SmartThings whatsoever if you’re using Hubitat. The documentation all refers to ST, but you simply need to do the same steps on Hubitat instead.


#278

It works. Thanks so much.
Why there are so many "Play Text" commands ?


#279

I went and started a new thread before seeing this was more than just about making Alexa do TTS.

Amazon enabled "Guard" today -- but you're supposed to tell Alexa when you're leaving and when you're arriving. If those functions could be incorporated into a tool like this, we could then use the Hubitat presence flag and RM to "arm/disarm" Guard...

Any chance that might be possible?


#280

Right now i'm not seeing anything I can use to trigger Alexa Guard. I promise that as soon as there is a way It will be added.
Hopefully they add it to the routines and once they do I will certainly be able to add support

Just an FYI... Alexa Guard only seems to be supported on newer Echos | Show, Spot, Dot (Gen3)


#281

I'm honestly not sure why it's duplicating all of those commands like that in the UI


#282

@tonesto7. Perhaps I missed something, but I'm not sure of what I need to do if I want to add a new Echo Dot (have a new one coming today) to my setup. Is it done in the app or do I actually have to re-deploy the Heroku server?
