The Wemo app has a nice feature called Sleep Timer, that allows you to fade out the lights over a period of 1 or more minutes.
I was trying to initiate this feature from within Alexa (using the Alexa skill) but it was impossible to find a way.
I even called Wemo tech support, but the chinese rep barely could understand what I wanted, she was reading from a book.
I consider this to be one of the best feature of the Wemo dimmer, which is otherwise a great great product.
I would like to be able to fade out the lights over a period of 1 minute using the voice from Alexa.
I would also like to have a similar feature that would increase the lights from 0% to 100% over a period of 1 or more minutes. I could use this with Alexa routines, or IFTTT, etc. to do beautiful routines (like in SF movies)
Come on guys, this is not an issue of the dimmer hardware itself, which is fully capable of doing this, but a missing feature of the Wemo app and the Wemo skill for Alexa.
People at Belkin / Wemo - I am looking forward for your feedback on this issue.
This is very feasable.
