since now I've used node-red-contrib-amazon-echo, the author made a good work (thanks to him a lot!) but this module has some limitations and he stopped developing it.
- It emulates only bulbs, and recently Alexa introduced more strict control to devices, in past I was able to say in my language "Alexa open curtains", now I can't, I should say "ALexa switch on curtains" which is unlogic and not comfortable.
- The second big limitation is about use 2 words for one name, I have curtains in different rooms for example, in tepast it worked niw alexa got crazy using one word for different devices (for example "Living room Curtains" and "Bedroom curtains"). Maybe this can be solved by skills?
- the third problem I have is to connect 2 Echos in the same IP domain and use the same device names, for example 2 Echos placed on different floors where I have "bedroom curtains", each Echo should only recognize the proper node of the same floor.
THe plus of this module is that work with absence of internet.. but I'm guessing if it is really a plus, as Alexa needs internet to recognize voice.. sounds not an advantage
Now, I see there are different modules on Node Red, may you please suggest me the best one? Should I test them all?
Thank you very much
