(I just implemented a few updates I discovered were outdated for the garage door which were meant for older vera firmwares)
I just recently came to the realization that I can do a lot more with Hey Siri with devices I already own. I have therefore a renewed interest and have been configuring my homekit installation to match my alexa capability. Unfortunately a lot of things are still pretty far behind in terms of integration but... I found homebridge and all its plugins. I just wanted to share the alternative I pursued: Home Assistant. I implemented the Homekit component for it and have been able to bridge Sonos and Harmony while my openLuup devices are still bridged into homekit through the VeraHomekitBridge. If you already have home assistant, homebridge is potentially redundant...
The probability of taking down alexa and its cloud dependency completely is increasing...
Not sure if I'm imagining it, but I used to have a 'Save' button on the activities tab of Reactor? Right now if I add or edit any activity, I have to go to another tab, and confirm the 'Unsaved Changes' dialogue.
@toggledbits No, I totally grokked what you were explaining, it's just that there's a (relatively new) well-documented problem of Amazon Alexa now only looking at port 80 during Discovery. Hence, whatever solution one rigs to intercept its inquiries, it must originate on some device's HTTP port 80. And that simply cannot happen (without major surgery and risk) on the Synology NAS, even if you try to instruct a Docker container to open it (yields red box and stern warning). Just no can do.
therealdb is recommending a work-around using Vera, and I'm inclined to try that once I pin down where his info applies.
I've done some reading on the HS forums and a workable solution might be to use the HASS Controller.
The theory being to run HASS > MQTT > HS, it seems convoluted but should work, I'll give a go tomorrow.
