    Time for revised and new Alexa commands - suggestion

    It's about time to create new commands for Alexa when it comes to shades and lighting zones. The commands "raise" and "lower" should be added to the library. Also, it's about time to include toggle commands like "turn on/off" lights, and go beyond only being able to activate scenes. As you all know, Home Owner keypads can only include toggle actions, not scenes, so in order to be able to get full potential of Alexa the RA2 programmer is required to create fake keypads with scenes. Fake keypads generate errors during Transfer.

    Thank you for your post.
    I will ensure your feedback gets to the appropriate teams for review.

    "Open" and "Close" would also be critical for shading (draperies). Could you please pass this along to the appropriate teams?

    We need Lutron to urgently take action on the integration with Alexa, it's been almost a year now that my clients complain about the louzy integration for shades. It's impossible to raise or lower a shade without sending weird repeated commands to Alexa, such as "Alexa, turn on Master Bedroom shade", that doesn't mean anything in verbal language, it's a code. They need to repeat that three times for a shade to lower... Clients notice this type of shortfalls...
