Open or close Kodi with a SmartThings virtual switch

  • administrators

    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:
