AlexaPI and MagigMirror at same raspberry
I have not been able to run AlexaPi with MagicMirror.
I installed AlexaPi in the same RPi where MagicMirror is.
The microphone is a webcam and the speaker output 3.5mm. I hear Hello on boot up, but I can not call Alexa. I say “Alexa” but there is no way!
Can you help me? Somebody can share Alexa config?
@ezarlive my experience with using AlexaPi with a webcam was dismal. Are you also using the webcam for facial recognition? If so I think the video capture saturates the USB connection and leaves little left over for the microphone. I switched to using the Pi camera connected to the CSI header and a standalone USB microphone and my results are much better.
I test using mic usb but doesn’t works too.
@ezarlive Have you verified recording is working? If not, try this:
It helped me get my microphone working.
Hope this helps!

Do you really need alexapi? I use the code which was made available by amazon. [https://github.com/alexa/alexa-avs-sample-app](link url)
Unless you need a specific alexapi module on MM2 you could try this one.
@j.e.f.f thanks! arecord test.wav and aplay test.wav works fine.
I install pulse too, but still not detect Alexa trigger…
