I tried to reply to the existing threat Alexa Skill is gone but that one is closed for some reason.

Anyways.....

It is now published again on Amazon.com as an available skill! Be sure to read the command examples on the skill page, as the syntax has changed a bit. You have to say "Pentair Pool" instead of just Pentair.

Also, one thing I discovered when testing/experimenting with it. It doesn't seem to recognize Custom Circuit Names. So if you have a circuit with a Custom name, you'll have to change it to one of the default names included within Screenlogic. I had one and after experimenting around, that is what I discovered.

Unfortunately, it seems that haven't fixed the issue where it doesn't turn anything off. I always had little, if sporadic luck with that before. Same thing now. I also noticed in the list of verbage examples given on the current skill page on Amazon.com, none of them are for turning anything OFF :) .

But, I am fine with this part of it for now, until (hopefully) the integrate the OFF command into it in the future.

Enjoy everyone!!!

Quick update....mine is now giving me an error saying it can't connect to requested pool. I even tried disabling/reenabling the skill process which has you re-register your Screenlogic with them and still no luck.
