Alexa and on/off macros

I want to be able to clear the existing effect when invoking an alexa command. Even if I have to tell it to turn the lights off and then back on.

As it is, if an animation plays, voice commands don’t stop it. I can change brightness and color and toggle power but none of those will reset the effect.

I thought the alexa on/off macros would do that but I can’t make it happen. If I do a macro of PL=1 it won’t do anything. PL=1 does work if called from the timer. Same thing with FX=0.

I do not want to control the effects from alexa, just to be clear. I want a clean slate to override any animation.
