    Hey!

    I just bought Tasker, Autovera and Autovoice.

    I got all my scenes to trigger with voice and its awesome. (Using only one profile like in the tutorial)

    Next, I would like to control devices one by one with variables
    Exemples: Dim Kitchen Light 25%, Lock Door, Turn on Living room light 100%, etc

    How would I do that?

    Glad you're enjoying it :)

    Check out this video:
    You can use variables for whatever you like :)

    So, for example you could have a command like "dim (?<device>.+) (?<percentage>[0-9]+)%" that would give you the device name and percentage to use in the "AutoVera Devices" action :)

    Hope this helps

    Maybe i dont understand what I need to say. For example i said "dim kitchen light ten percent", i also tried "dim kitchen light ten"
    I made sure kitchen light is the name of my device in Vera, and Autovera.

    Can you please add a Flash action prior to the AutoVera Devices action just to check if the variables have the correct values?

    Yay! I got it working. I tried with dim (?<device>.+) (?<percentage>[0-9].+)% instead of dim (?<device>.+) (?<percentage>[0-9]+)% and it works now. Didint know if not putting the "." was a mistake or if its just a coincidence lol.

    So my devices respond and everything works. Only thing now is that the status of the light for exemple, instead of being "25%", is showing NAN%. And I suspect its why my Vera app on my phone is crashing. Any idea? Its like if the app dosent like the loadlevel being set "manualy" on a light switch.

    Thanks so far, loving it :)
