Thanks. Only outbound? That's curious. So when I use my IFTTT webhook trigger with Alexa to turn my bedroom fan on, it doesn't send a packet to my agent from your system to let it know to activate?

RE: Backup settings
PS: The reason I have to rebuild the machine is it was compromised. I implemented IP filters on my firewall so only my cellphone and family systems can access my server. The communications from your service; is there an IP range I can use to whitelist it?
RE: Can't get things to trigger
This is a bit late, lol, but thanks. Got that all working now so I can be in bed and say "alexa, trigger windy 15" and have my fan turn on for fifteen minutes only. So nice :) Used to be I could turn it on with Alexa but it would run until I turn it off, so I'd fall asleep and wake up frozen hehe.
Can't get things to trigger
Hi. I want to be able to lie in bed and say "alexa, trigger fan 15" and have it run a batch that will turn the fan in the bedroom off in fifteen minutes. But just to start simple, I made a batch file that just plays a WAV file so I can test the connectivity. Installed TriggerCMD agent on my pc named "Zaranth". As that's a mouthful and i was afraid Alexa may interpret the weird word oddly, I set voice trigger for that PC to game as it's my gaming rig. I created a command "noisy" that runs \misc\triggercmd\noise.bat. If I hit the green "trigger" button for that command when viewing the list of triggers, it works perfectly.
So I said "alexa, ask trigger c m d to run noisy on game" (figured I'd make sure it worked native before throwing IFTTT into the mix). No dice. It won't see it, said it cannot find that command. I can't figure out what's wrong. Any idea?
RE: Voice words / parameters
Thanks. The generic usage method looks fine. I wouldn't think that a movie or whatever specific parameter would really be necessary; the people creating their commands will know what kind of input to expect and will handle it accordingly.
I guess for now I'll just make "codewords" that do specific functions, heh. That'll work for now. Thanks again!
Voice words / parameters
Hi! I just bought an Echo tonight, and the deciding factor was that I could control my PC when I Googled and saw your program. I've been playing with it, it's cool. However, I have one snag. I wanted to be able to launch videos from it, so I created a trigger "Die Hard", command was the path and filename of the video, voice was "die hard". I pronounced it as clearly as I could but it keeps saying "cannot find command die". Does it not support multiple word voice commands? I changed it to "die" and it worked.
Also I was trying to find documentation on parameters and failing. Can you direct me? I'm wondering if I can create a command that is generic then pass parameters that I assume I say after the trigger word to launch the appropriate title. I just can't find any docs on how parameters work.
I setup a trigger "video", with command "p:\utils\scripts\triggercmd.php video", voice "video" allow parameters true. My PHP script looks for parameter "diehard". I said "alexa, ask trigger c m d to run video diehard" and it said "could not find a command with voice word video hard on (pcname)". Am I misinterpreting how to use parameters?
