Smart Home Skill Api For Curtains/Drapes
Currently In Alexa Smart Home Skill there is no Api to control Drapes/Curtains.
Alexa,open Living Room Curtain
Alexa,close Living Room Curtain
It will be very useful if Smart Home team implement this feature specially for Hotel Automation and also smart home automation.

Is there any news about this Idea?

This would be valuable for both shades and curtains but in other general applications as well. For shades we would need Raise/Lower and for curtains Open/Close.

Also recognise blinds so the user can say "open kitchen blind".
And add them as something like a "covers" device type so they can be add to a group for location awareness so the user can just say "open curtains" or "open blind" to open the covers in the current room.
The type might support "open", "close", "stop", "tilt" and an optional value for "open blind 50 percent" or ^tilt blind 25 percent" for Venetian bĺinds.
