Voice control feedback - comparing Homey and Amazon Alexa and integration via IFTTT
I am new to Homey and tried unsuccessfully to make my own voice controlled flows.
I have several Amazon Echo/Dots alexa devices around my home. Their voice commands work for maybe 95%
Amazon logs each voice command, and via the alexa app it asks did it do what I expected.
If Homey had similar functionality it may help users to debug the voice control.
I think it is also essential to be able to selectively disable the in built Homey voice triggers, to be able to avoid strange results.
At the moment I am using Amazon Alexa to process my voice commands and then invoking Homey flows via IFTTT.
Whilst this incurs delays and extra security issues it does work vey reliably
