Amazon Echo integration

Tue Jan 19, 2016 12:03 pm

Does anyone know how to do this?

I'd love to have this for Nissan Connect. Just ask Echo to turn on the heat/AC a few minutes before we leave. The other thing that would be nice would be to charge to 100%. We have charge timers set so that it always charges to 80%, and to get 100% we have to go out and hit the timer override. It would be nice to just say "Alexa, charge the leaf to 100%".

Nissan Connect/Carwings lets you charge to 100% with the timer set to 80% - I do it all the time. Just click on "Start Charging" with the car plugged in.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

I realize that but the app is a pain in the ***. It's actually faster to walk into the garage and push the button. I'm curious if this could be integrated with Echo so that all I have to do is ask Alexa and she can deal with all the lag/delays in Connect/Carwings.

Any luck with this guys? This is super cool. I wonder if commands like, "Alexa, how much charge my leaf has?" will be of help too.

I would love to have Alexa check on my Leaf for me! Letter-writing to Amazon, anyone?

Nissan would have to open up the NissanConnect API to third parties in order for this to work. Then someone could make a IFTTT integration that tied into that.

Maybe the developer of Leaf Manager could put something together? https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... eafmanager

There is an aftermarket Alexa skill for the Volt that does all that... It is pretty cool and I use it all the time.

I believe this is what you really want. And it has an ODB2 interface. I've got one on order.
