Almond+ / Re: Port Forwarding Isn't Working
« Last post by Casey_SJ on January 20, 2018, 09:59:34 am »
Update:

Using the Chrome browser instead of Safari, I get a different, but still non-working response when trying to delete a Port Forwarding entry. After clicking the Delete button next to an entry, Chrome displays a message from the router indicating that the entry has been deleted and asking me to click Save. When I do that, however, the entry is not deleted.

So now we have 2 problems:

1. Port forwarding is not working.
2. The button to Delete port forwarding entries is also not working.

These are quite critical bugs that need to be fixed ASAP or I will have to abandon the Almond device completely.

Almond 3 / Re: Almond 3 locks up with blank white screen

I previously had this same concern.  I swapped my primary out with a satellite issue and it helped greatly.  But perhaps the biggest change was going from an SB6190 to a CM600 Cable Modem as I was having other issues I could attribute to PUMA6 overloading like video buffering and periodic congestion.

Almond 3 / Re: Any feedback related to Almond 3 Firmware AL3-R022

I am getting double notification from my sensors.  It occurs for both zwave and zigbee sensors.  When a door is opened, I will get two open door notifications and when closed, I will get two closed notifications.  I have tried powering down the A3 and have also removed the sensors and re-added them.

Almond+ / Re: Mesh network
« Last post by Casey_SJ on January 19, 2018, 01:46:22 pm »
I think Securifi is intentionally omitting this feature from Almond+. I'm sure they have their reasons, some of which may be to differentiate newer models from older models to encourage new sales.

Anyhow, the best implementations of mesh networking involve a dedicated backhaul channel that connects the nodes together. Each node in the mesh network would be a tri-band node. WiFi would be delivered over standard 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands while a dedicated third band would be used to communicate between nodes.

Port Forwarding stopped working for me a few days ago. Will try reordering them. By the way, if I try to delete a Port Forwarding rule (from my iPad over local WiFi connection to Almond+) I get immediately logged out and the rule is not deleted. (I'm running the latest R092 firmware.)

Home automation / Sylvania/OSRAM Lightify Color-dimmable bulb and Alexa
« Last post by djd on January 19, 2018, 12:05:43 pm »
Hi all,

I have a bunch of Sylvania/Osram Lightify 60W bulbs (ZIgbee technology) successfully connected to my Almond+.

Using Almond+ touch screen, app, and web interface I can successfully:
- turn on/off, change color, change brightness and saturation.
- assign it to a scene or trigger

Using the Alexa Almond Home Automation skill I cannot change the color (Alexa says that the device "does not support that"). But, in the Alexa app it correctly shows up as a "color-dimmable bulb". What should I do to make it work?

As a temporary workaround I created a different scene for each color of each bulb within Almond, and using the Alexa Almond App (which is a different skill than the one above), I can ask Alexa "tell Almond to XXX". This works, but it is not the way I want it since it requires a manual creation of hundred of scenes. My other colored bulbs support the regular Alexa command "Alexa, change XXX color to XXX".

Any idea and/or experience regarding this?

Thanks a lot,
Daniel

Almond+ / Re: Any feedback related to Almond+ Firmware R092
« Last post by twistties on January 19, 2018, 07:55:39 am »
I've updated. So far the only thing I noticed was an additional step when creating a scene. Asking if I was using Alexa to tap the next button to name the skill otherwise tap Done.

Is there a roadmap anywhere on the almond products? Specifically around integration with Google Assistant, Stringify and the ability to access the sensors directly.

I have 5 Osram Lightify lights (some white and some color) connected to my Almond. I'm using IFTTT to control them by voice to GA. While this works it is limited.  An Almond scene needs to be created for each instruction and then a subsequent matching IFTTT applet.

Turn on family room lights
Turn off family room lights.
Turn on family room lights blue.
Etc etc

Is there a way to not need so many scenes just to dim lights or change colors? I'm new to this.  I'm assuming if there was a roadmap to add Google Assistant would skip the need for IFTTT... but what about the ability to control the sensors directly too.
Hey Google, turn the family room green. No almond scenes... just a quick intruction directly to the family room bulb(s).

The rules nor the scenes use the bulb location (i.e. kitchen, living room) in the config .... is there some other reason Almond asks the location of the device/sensor?

Thanks in advance for any feedback and tips!
