I would like to return some custom message when invoking Home Skill API - for example information that light is already on/off. Is there any way to do this?

The Smart Home Skill API can only set the state of
appliances, not retrieve their current state. If you would like to
include this functionality, you will need to use the Alexa Skills Kit.
I think it is very important to be able to ask Alexa if there are lights on in my house or if I forgot to turn the iron off. Is there a plan from Amazon to add this ability in the near feature?
Thanks for posting, but unfortunately we do not comment on future plans. I'd suggest keeping an eye on our developer blog here for further updates.
