Heya,

Got bored over the weekend and got annoyed with app to pre-heat the PHEV. Browsing this forum the key mod did not work (2018 Model). I was able to over the weekend get Alexa to start the car. I say the phrase "Alexa, trigger car heat" The car then preheats for 10 minutes. Takes around 90 seconds for it to start.

Would anyone here have a use for a guide if I wrote one? The requirements are:

1) Rooted Android phone running 8.0 or below. 9.0+ does not work. I used my old Google Pixel 1 XL.
2) IFTTT Account (Free!)
3) Tasker app ($4.99) if I remember right.
4) Alexa dot, speaker, UE Megaboom, ecobee 4 thermostat, fire stick. Anything that has Alexa built in.

Future commands still to add:

Alexa, Trigger car cold, I have months to make this =)
Alexa, Trigger car heat 20

Anyways, it works great and now we can start the car when need be. You can also tie into into more IFTTT things like alarms.

Cheers

I'd be interested, but keep it basic/simple.
I tripped at the first step (Rooted Android).

I find my Android connection very flaky. It has worked but fails most of the time.

Does this just preheat using the electric heater or does it actually start the engine?

Got a bit busy over the last couple days but I will try and get a guide out this weekend.

1) It starts the electric heat just like you would with the app
2) Just IFTTT would work as you could put a button
3) An Amazon dash button would also work.
4) If rooting and a flaky android phone is the problem. Then this solution may not work.


With the guide I try and save some time it took me troubleshooting =D
