That's pretty cool.  But where's the Google Home love 😉

I would very much like to do with my JBL smart speaker with Google Assistant.

Anyone have any info/docs about how to use the Google Assistant/Home APIs to use with Meraki?

Hi

 

I have had this up and running for a few weeks now and its been working fine. Yesterday I experienced a pretty serious issue though. Is there someone I can report this to please?

PM me the info and I can get it to the guys that developed it the feature.

Just to be clear, the file meraki_info.py has the lab_org variable on line 10 clearly marked as "DO NOT MODIFY" in comments above and below. You are not meant to change that to your own organization ID along with kit_org on line 17.

This documentation was put together first for Meraki/Cisco SEs to demo, and from the recording, you'll see that the lab_org is a "dumping ground" organization where networks are created on the fly and then deleted as part of a demo. The Alexa "delete all my networks" command will only call the lab_org, never the kit_org (unless you happen to modify that code as well).

i seem to be having a hard time getting it to do some functions. some work and some don't. i wish there was an easier way of adding more functions.

Hello.  I have been through the e-mail threads a couple of times.  Is there a python example to upload to the Amazon Lambda portion that doesn't point to the Lab?  I own my own Meraki and want Alexia to point to that only.  I am not very skilled in Python as of yet but continuing to learn.
