In general I like that way of controlling scenes and devices via Hue Emulation + Amazon echo … because of the fast response.
But from time to time I experience annoying difficulties.
The trouble always start with the Alexa answering something like:
“The device is not responding… check network etc.”
I have that problem at present and I’m not able to solve:
- delete all devices with the alexa web UI https://alexa.amazon.de -> option “remove all”
- rediscover the devices -> works fine
(tried multiple times in the web UI of Alexa and in the App)
- Alexa is discovering all devices… listed as Type: other (sonstiges)
- …but I’m not able to control them
the App opens only a property page of the device - no control
the Voice command to Alexa is answered with:“The device is not responding.”
Does anybody has the same problems?
I’m using the Amazon Echo binding and I’m thinking about evaluate the Item: LastVoiceCommand ?
Does anybody do this?
Is there another way of using voice commands together with an Amazon echo device?
