  1. Enable non lighting devices to be recognised as lights

    Have Alexa be able to recognise items like TP Link smart switches as lights by means of a toggle switch within the device lists. Currently calling the turn off all the lights command excludes the smart switches. Creating a group called all the lights seems to cause confusion for Alexa.

  3. Additional types for switches

    Wemo switches can now be configured with the type of "light". This allows for grouping lights per room. Saying "Alexa turn on the lights" will just turn on the lights in the room with your echo device for example. This is great, but switches can also be hooked u to things that aren't lights. I'd love to be able to say "Alexa, turn on the fans" and have it work per/room as well. Any chance we could get additional types added to this smart home feature?

  4. Support gradual change of smart lights

    Currently, light brightness or color temperature can only be changed to a set value, which happens immediately. I would like to be able to change to a value gradually -- e.g., "set light brightness to 100% over 5 minutes". This would be extremely useful in routines.
