    did your four hours or so include getting to grips with it for the first time, as a novice, or were you already into it ... ? ?

    just trying to gauge how long we might need !

    last experience of such things was with the Met.Office DataPoint facility - which took a while, especially the overlay side of things, 'though seemed all v.easy once did get into it ...

    It was my first time, plus I've never programmed in Python before (I do know C, PHP etc), so there's been a small learning curve on the syntax differences. The Echo SmartHome SDK provides some Lamba templates you can use to get going quickly.

    Once I have something resembling a fully working skill I'm happy to upload the code to Github so others can reuse it.

    There will be some changes that Idratek will need to make to their API support for it to be provided as a downloadable "marketplace" skill for Echo..mainly allowing Oath2 authentication tokens against the WebAPI, plus a way of registering your API endpoint address so the Lambda code knows where to send the API calls.

    It's still very early days though.

    Cheers

    Neil -

    any news, any more successes ?

    have been watching the EvoHome / Echo thread in the Heating Control forum - seems less than smooth, 'though perhaps for a range of reasons ...
