Amazon Guard

Anyone know if there’s a way to turn Amazon Guard on/off via scripting or with changes in Home/away modes?

Amazon recently released the ability to execute spoken commands.

Using my plug-in, you could just do something like this:

  {Command="-e textcommand:'Alexa, I’m leaving' -d 'Bedroom'"}, 666)

dbochicchio/VeraAlexa: Alexa plug-in for Vera and openLuup. (

textcommand could be anything you’ll say to Alexa, so routines are not required and you could do complex things like “TV volume to 32” or “Play 90 Rock music everywhere”

Dude, thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for.

Is your app in Vera yet? I did a search for “vera remote” on the install apps page and it came up blank.

It’s Vera Alexa and it’s in the store.

Sorry if I’m missing something simple. But if I go into my controller > Apps > Install Apps and search “vera alexa” nothing comes up. If I search “alexa” I only get two results “Amazon Alexa Helper” and “HTD Lync 6/12”.

You’re right, I never published it. But you can manually install pretty easily, just look at GitHub instructions.

Any reason you aren’t publishing it? Seems like a good plugin.

I’m waiting for next firmware, when it will gain full access to new features.
