Open or close Kodi with a SmartThings virtual switch
Create a batch file in c:\scripts called kodi.bat with these contents:
if "%1"=="on" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\kodi.exe" if "%1"=="" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi\kodi.exe" if "%1"=="off" taskkill /im kodi.exe
Go here to setup the TRIGGERcmd SmartApp in SmartThings.
Use the SmartApp to create a virtual switch for Kodi.
Alexa, turn on Kodi Alexa, turn off Kodi
Kodi as a name works fine for me. even spelled it Kodi vs Cody or something. not sure what the issue may be on your end.
@Neflhiem, yea you're right. I was testing it before I told Alexa to discover my new Kodi virtual switch. I assumed it was failing because Alexa didn't hear Kodi right. I was wrong.
Sorry about that. I re-recorded that video too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYHbT05UMQc
