OK, a short feedback how to use IFTTT to add wakeuplight to Echo alarm:
- Goto IFTTT, create a new applet, choose alexa
- choose the "your alarm goes off" trigger option
- add yeelight option "set scene"
- choose the right scene
- save the new applet
During this process, I realized the origin of the "Good Morning" and "Good Night" scenes, appearing in the alexa app. I created them once as a test in my yeelight app (choose the option button in the upper right corner -> Scene Management). To finish the idea of creating an alexa controlled wakeup-light alarm, we have to add the standard sunrise scene of our yeelight app (you can choose the scenes by pushing the star button in the main menu of your lamp). I have no idea how to do this, since for scene programming, only "hue", "white" and "flow" seems to work, I can't choose an already programmed scene
You have an idea how to fix this, Wilson?
Update: Creating Scenes with the yeelight scene management works great, now I can switch to any scene, including different colours and flows. The only problem is that alexa has problems with the names, so you might have to try some different version until it works.
The code for a scene change in german is "Alexa, schalte [scenename]" btw
Now the only open issue is to make the sunrise scene available scene in the alexa skill...
Update II: Got it. Use the "change colour" instead of the "set scene" option -> sunrise 8)
naturally, this works the other way around using timer and sunset (you might switch volume down to zero)
THIS IS AWESOME!
