Alexa and Neeo Work (A Tiny Bit)

Just got an Alexa dot. It found all of my recipes on the Neeo. Most don’t work, but this one does.

  • That's great! I'm hoping in the future that I could use Alexa to enter search parameters instead of my Sony remote.

  • Do you mind my asking how you did it? I mean, how you got the dot to talk to the Neeo?

  • I used the Alexa app to scan for devices. It found all of the Neeo recipes, but considered them WeMo devices. When I call out the names, most don’t work, except the ones that turn on and off my TV and Apple TV.

  • Yeah.  Wow. Just noticed them too. Am able to turn on the recipes (TV/FireTv) and turn off the TV. Just hoping for FireTV support to come on anytime now and my setup will be complete and perfect.

  • I noticed in another Topic that NEEO is working on a Google Home and Alexa interface as a way to incorporate voice commands.

  • How did you get Alexa to discover the Neeo recipes? Have you added the WeMo Skill?

    My Alexa did not find the Neeo recipes, even after multiple searches.

  • Andreas Hinsen try to reboot your brain, sometimes it fails, when the Brain runs to long. Then you only need to enable the recipes you want to be find by alexa and ask alexa to search for new devices. Then they should be shown.

    • Markus Mahr Thanks for the help. I just rebooted but unfortunately the recipes didn't show up.

    • Andreas Hinsen Is your Brain connected via LAN or WiFi only? I sometimes have seen trouble, when using WiFi only. Also keep in mind, that this "feature" is only a prove of concept currently and not a really integration of the Feature. Maybe you will see a reply tomorrow from one of the NEEO Team about the Issue. Maybe Patrick can say more.

      Markus Mahr I'm with ^^^ Andreas Hinsen did you enable the wemo skill on your alexa app?

      if no i don't see how you got your alexa device to see your recipes 

      any help would be great thanks

    • Il Marcus no, not enabled. I have the Brain on LAN connection and ask alexa to discover new devices and she finds them.

      Il Marcus in Neeo app, go to settings, then recipes.  Toggle the recipes off and click done.  Then go back to settings/recipes and toggle them back on.  Then go to the Alexa app and go to Smart Home settings and click Add Device.  It should rescan and find the recipes from your Neeo as Wemo switches.  This is how I added a previously deleted Neeo recipe item from the Alexa app.

      Kyle W  I just did it but the Alexa app cannot find it. At this time I cannot connect the NEEO brain via Ethernet only wirelessly. Is that way Alexa cannot find it?

      Il Marcus Sorry that did not work for you.  Wireless should work; that's how mine is connected.  I tried several times within the Alexa app to scan for new devices and nothing appeared until I toggled the recipes off then back on and rescanned.  Good luck!

      Kyle W  one last question did you enable your Wemo skill? I tried but it’s asking for my Wemo id number or something

      Il Marcus I do not have the Wemo skill enabled in the Alexa app.  However, Alexa still picked up the HDMI-based things connected to the Neeo brain.  You may just need to hook up an HDMI cable from your brain to your TV or receiver so Neeo can link to anything with an HDMI connection that way.

    • Bernhard it is not required to install a skill prior to use the neeo in combination with alexa. You normally only need to do the smart device discovery to get all (active) recipes as wemo switches in the alexa app. But there are misterious circumstances where the discovery is not working corrently.

      Markus Mahr Sorry, your description is accurate. That's what I mean, I can't find any of the NEEO recipes listed when I tried smart devices discovery on Alexa app...

  • What’s the deal here? Are we expecting actual Alexa integration at all at any point? Seems like a huge win for NEEO if it can be done. And it should be done really.

  • I've found that each firmware upgrade process disassociates the recipes from Alexa and causes them not to function. If you edit a recipe and then Alexa sees a change and rediscovers all the recipes.

  • I spent quite some time trying to get this to work today. After trying many different things I went into the recipies, switched them all off, clicked done and then went back into recipies and switched them on again and clicked done (as someone else mentioned on this thread). Alexa then found the recipies. Before this wasn’t working at all. I didn’t add the wemo skill.
