Presence Alerts and Alexa Skill

Post by fatbellybinky »

Hi All,
I have two Presence outdoor floodlight/cameras and recently discovered that there is an Alexa skill that works with these devices. However, all it seems to enable you to do is turn the floodlights on or off. Also, if the floodlight setting was originally set to Auto, Alexa won't restore it to Auto so you have to do that via the Netatmo Security App. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any way to get the alerts from the cameras sent to Alexa so they are announced on my Alexa devices.
I have a video doorbell from Eufy and that works nicely with Alexa allowing alerts to be announced on my Alexa devices as well as live view of the doorbell camera to so I was hoping the Netatmo skill would do the same but apparently not. I hoped it might be added in the recent update to the Netatmo App but selecting the Presence cameras in the Alexa App just reports them as "Smart Outdoor Camera by Netatmo" and just allows you to enable or disable them in Alexa but nothing else. Am I missing something?
