Has anyone figured out a way to say simple commands to the RA via Echo? I would like to get some simple commands working. Mainly, feed mode. Maybe using the web command, /mw?

Thanks

I don't have one, but Google search leads to creating an Alexa skill, which requires you to sign up for a dev account.
After signing up and creating the skill, you should be able to send commands to RA

This is the correct feed mode command?

That would be sweet. Would make life so much easier. I could ask my wife to feed the fish now :)

Seedlessone - are you working on this? I was going to pick this up as a side project but ran across this thread.

Don’t know if this helps, but it came across my YouTube feed:

It shows the setup process for an Alexa skill and RPi out the serial port.

The only command that hasn't worked yet, is "Alexa what is the temperature of ____". I've change the probe name a few times to make sure the echo could understand me. Its named "fish tank"now and she has no clue what I'm asking. LOL
