Vera and Alexa integrate pretty nicely. My point of using Vera as a controller is to keep data local. Evidently, I need to build a skill. The Amazon APK appears to have everything I need, but I'm at a chicken-egg quandary. Amazon appears to allow developers access to sensors, etc, through Alexa for status. However, the tilt switch I have is attached (and working) in Vera but Vera does not "allow" the sensor to be seen by the Vera-Alexa discovery.
I want to get started - I can (hopefully) build the skill - but who do I look to for the integration bit?
Vera says see Amazon, Amazon says you can do that already.
I would like to have Alexa warn a user if a door is open during a schedule, either by an alarm, or a red ring or a voice.
Any points, thoughts or ideas would be extremely helpful.
