Today I'm launching a new release, Gladys Assistant v4.9.
In this version, I'm bringing a new major integration to Gladys: Amazon Alexa.
What's new in Gladys Assistant 4.9?
Amazon Alexa integration
It's now possible to control your Gladys devices in Amazon Alexa.
We supports 3 types of control for now:
- On/Off (On lights, and switches)
- Light Brightness
- Light color
It means you can say:
- "Alexa, Turn on the light in the living room."
- "Alexa, dim the bathroom light."
To configure Amazon Alexa, it's just a few clicks.
You can follow our documentation on how to configure Amazon Alexa.
Inject variables in the HTTP Request action in scenes
You can now inject any variables from a scene in the HTTP Request action.
It's super simple and it can help you build powerful scene, like calling Node-RED with a custom parameter!
Zigbee2Mqtt: Add support for Sonoff SNZB-01
We now support more clicks on the Sonoff SNZB-01 wireless switch.
How to upgrade?
If you installed Gladys with the official Raspberry Pi OS image, your instance will update automatically in the coming hours. It can take up to 24 hours, don't panic.
If you installed Gladys with Docker, make sure you are using Watchtower. See the documentation.
With Watchtower, Gladys will update automatically.
