I have just acquired an Alexa Echo Dot (got to keep up with the grandkids) so I thought I would integrate it into my node-RED controls.
I have installed
node-red-contrib-alexa-remote2-applestrudel. Both work well. I can get Alexa to chat with me and I can use the app (Android) & voice to get Alexa to turn things On & Off etc.
However, I have not been able to get the app to show me the current state of my devices (nor does the app show a colour control for a colour LED lamp)
According to what I have read this should be automatic with the virtual node, but just in case I tried sending Alexa the status of the devices, still no joy.
So the question is, is this as expected?, if not what do I need to do to sort it out?
