Available action controls in Alexa Routines is limited to only “Set Temp”.
The functions for State Change (Home\Away\Sleep) are currently unavailable for Alexa Voice Commands and Routine Actions.
I have done extensive work to include my Thermostat in my Alexa Voice Command Automation Routines. I accomplished this by employing a static Wyze Plug as a trigger\action bridge between the two ecosystems. Details here:
I believe that Amazon has a great deal of culpability in this when they have highly demanding requirements and restrictions on how other ecosystems may interact on Alexa. They aren’t the most welcoming of competitive ecosystems.
And, I personally wouldn’t be spending a great deal of time, resources, or fees trying to get Alexa integration compatibility for features right now knowing that the standard will be changing sometime in the short term future.
With Wyze buying into the Matter Standard development pool, they are investing in the future of that universal standard of integration. We can only hope that comes sooner rather than later and that it will open up a greater library of feature integrations with other ecosystems.
I’m using the Wyze thermostat with my Alexa. If I want to raise or lower the temperature I need to first ask
What is the thermostat temperature?
Alexa will respond. (lets say 75 degrees)
Then I can say “Alexa set thermostat to 74 degrees”
All I want to do at any time is raise the thermostat temperature 1 or 2 degrees in either raise or lower.
The Wyze guide says it is a command. But when I say “Alexa decrease the thermostat by 1 degree.” Alexa only repeats The Thermostat is set for ex: 75. The current temperature. It does not reduce the temperature by 1 degree. How is this resolved?
