Alexa Garadget Skill - can't distinguish multiple Garadget's?


#1

I have 2 Garadget’s, one hooked up to my Garage and the other to my Gate. I have “named” them Garage and Gate respectively :slight_smile:

When I ask Alexa , “tell smartgarage to open the garage” it opens both the garage and the gate. If I ask Alexa the status of the garage, it gives me the status of the garage and gate. Seems it’s having trouble differentiating between the two devices.

Is this a known issue or is there a way to solve this ?

Thanks

Garage is a generic word and appear in many utterances so it’s pretty much ignored.
Try something like “Home” and “Gate”. The skill will also accept numeric references. Like “Open door 1”.
