The reviews are so poor for IHC that I never even tried using it. E-Control is the other app that predates IHC


but needs it to use alexa e control cannot use alexa

you have 2 options:

1) IHC--skill--Alexa

2) E-Control--RM Plugin--Alexa

Like I said I've read poor reviews for IHC app. It seems only to work with Alexa under very limited conditions, i.e. only if your Alexa devices are registered in US, and only for TV remote.

Sorry I can't assist any further as I've not tried it myself. Hopefully other enthusiasts here who got it working can help you out

Hi,
im using RM pro3 with IHC app, to communicate to Alexa . Yes, my amazon/Alexa settings are all US. and also yes, currently in order to 'talk' to Alexa via IHC, only TV remote template can be used, you can configure your ON/OFF button of RF/IR switch to be TV template 'ON" button.

as for how to do it, please kindly search paul hibbert youtube video, he has done a great job on Broadlink products.

Hi Ryehan, Yes... BTO/HDB apartments doesnt have neutral wire, unless u ask ur contractor/electrician to add when reno.

think u can put up for sale or trade with non-neutral wire RF switches such as Yoogee, broadlink TC2, Livolo....

Not an electrical engineer but I think the code of practice in Singapore for electrical works do not require the neutral wire

you have just wasted your money unless you are prepared to waste more money to get a electrician to pull neutral lines to every switch.

On a separate note, there's ongoing promotion for Alexa products in Amazon US. May be a good time to stock up. I've been itching to try Echo Spot.
