DDMS post?

ETA:
Why not do both: Sue their @$$3$ and take your ideas to the competition :D

Also, great thing to somehow get the word out that you got stabbed in the back by Amazon, no one will want to expose themselves to that by collaborating with the Alexa team... Shame on Amazon.

The shame is that the people at Amazon we've interacted with are actually really nice and wonderful people.  But the strategic advantages to getting their devices into every room of a home are just SO massive that I guess they felt like they had no choice.

They should have bought your company in that case.

What was their response to you as to why they did this to you?

I would suggest focusing more on the intercom aspect (Ring doorbell was a start, how about adding door release etc.) and possibly using as an interface for home-automation products.

I don't know how difficult it would be technically, but making it compatible with smart systems like SmartThings would allow people who don't want Amazon listening (and watching) in to their homes all the time to control smart devices from Nucleus.

Anyone here have this? Got a message on my devices today that Nucleus is moving to a subscription based service. $5 a month or $50 a year.

Yes, but I couldn't find any more more information about it anywhere.

We worked very closely with Amazon on integrating Alexa into Nucleus (in fact, Amazon later ended up investing in the company).  It should work exactly like an Echo with the following exceptions:
  • When music is playing, Nucleus will have trouble hearing "Alexa" [we're working on a fix]
  • You currently can't play Pandora or Spotify on Nucleus due to licensing issues [also being worked on]

However, it can also do things Echo can't - for example, because we have a screen, you can pause / FF/ rewind songs directly from the screen.

Oh the things you wish you never did...
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

You called?  8)

I am not involved there day-to-day anymore; I left a few months ago.  I do know that the new CEO is trying to figure out how to keep the servers running for the original product despite the fact that the company is focused on telehealth / senior care now, and I guess this is what he decided upon.
