  1. Support for blinds (or shades) in smart home with open/close/STOP/move to % and as display category

    This request was PARTIALLY addressed here :
    https://alexa.uservoice.com/forums/913024-alexa-smart-home/suggestions/34277038

    Blind category exists. Open, Close and Range to set position are available but the STOP command is missing !

    Also, when Blinds are assigned in room (group) why does Alexa not understand "Alexa, close the blinds".
    With lamps, "Alexa turn off the lights" will turn off the lights in the current room. This is a very natural interaction. Why not with Blinds ?
    Thanks for considering,
    Al

  2. Allow voice or smart button to enable and disable Alexa Routines for residents outside USA

    Allow smart button to enable and disable Alexa Routines, for example I use my Alexa app to enable my security routine which when active, means if the sensor downstairs detects motion, it sends an announcement to me via the bedroom echo, makes an announcement on the living room echo (that motion has been detected) and switches the downstairs lights on. It seems if you live in the US you can enable and disable routines by voice command (e.g. "Alexa, enable security routine") but for some bizarre reason, can't seem to do this in Australia. I also think there should be…

  3. Stock Skill or Routine for Scheduling Lights

    Set a standard routine or skill applet for controlling lights when away from home. Could be integrated into Guard, but also standalone. Allowing the ability to control different lights and set varying schedules would be a nice enhancement.

  4. Separate volumes levels for Alexa's voice response and media

    It would be nice to be able to set the volume of the assistant's voice separately from media playback. Smartphones have this feature built in for ringer, alarm, and media.

  5. Allow for delay in action based on verbal time or timer

    Allow execution of command based on the time or delay specified in the verbal command.
    “Alexa, lights off at midnight”
    “Alexa open shades in 30 mins”

  6. Support for automated furniture

    We have created a custom skill for controlling automated furniture, but it would be nice to have a Smart Home skill category along these lines. A furniture piece would have preset positions so it would be nice to take an integer value for position. It could also reuse slots designed for power (on/off vibration with power levels; on/off heat; on/off light).
