How to get garage door status using Alexa linked to SimpleCommands Scene
I have the integration working with my garage door (myq) via Simplecommands. I created routines in SC for open, close and status events for the garage door item, discovered the synced scenes in Alexa and linked them to routines in Alexa for open and close of door. However, for the status event - just running the routine in Alexa for the door status does not do anything - other than responding with "OK". How can I get the status of the garage door via Alexa? Natural way would be asking Alexa if door1 is open, closed, etc.. or something like "Alexa, door1 status". All else, works very well.
Another related question is also how to add a pin to the routine in Alexa for the garage door open. I know this is not an Alexa forum, but a previous post said they had accomplished that, so I am also interested to know.
