UPDATE YOUR BOOKMARKS!!!
We have an issue that there is no way around as of yet.
I have done all I can to try and prevent this from happening.
We are going to be losing the .com, .org and .de domains.
We have not been able to contact the original author of EventGhost
(the person that owns those domains) to redirect them to the new web server.
I set in motion when we first moved a redirection from the old server to the new server.
I also put in markers so that search engines would see this change and update any pointers
they have. We still have the .net domain for the production site. and the .rocks for the test site.
For the past few months you have been getting redirected to the .net site if you used one of the 3
domains mentioned above. I just wanted to tell everyone so they can make any changes needed.
* Added a Welcome post to EG (allows for a custom responses, I'm suggesting an event bases on the time and past event history)
* The post to EG now has 4 objects in the payload('spoken string',deviceid, sessionid, requestId)
* Rewrote some of the code, it should look much cleaner
Sorry about that. The type LITERAL never made it past the US. Amazon is trying to remove it completely. They recommend a Catchall type with a random generated list of words. I will need to work on that.

Thanks, I have had this feature for about a year in my personal version through the use of different skill for kitchen and bedrooms but the with deviceid being supported by Amazon it is much easier to manage.
I am also going to use the same skill code I share so I don't hold out on forums members. Not sure what other features Amazon with add.
I'm working on cleaning up the my EG Python code I use so I can share this as well. There is just a lot of code that is very customized to my home.
I'm hoping that Amazon will release the Voice ID stuff soon. That would be another great addition, to know who is speaking the command for even more customization. For example, I'd like to limit what zones my kids control (I don't really want them turning the fireplace on or off, messing with the thermostat, etc.) It could also be useful for personalized responses.
