I have used openHab for about 3 days now so I’m completely new. I finally did run into an issue I’m not sure how to fix myself, that is getting Alexa to be able to control Zwave devices.
Here is what I have so far:
I’ve paired my Raspberry Pi version of openHab with myopenhab.org. I have paired Alexa with openHab using the skill in the Alexa app. It shows up in myopenhab as enabled.
I’ve successfully added all my devices through Paper UI. I’ve added Hue bulbs, wemo switches, my phone, and successfully added a Zwave stick. I have also successfully added a Zwave power switch, motion detector/temp sensor as well.
All of these devices work perfectly fine when monitoring or turning off/on using the sliders in the Controls section of Paper UI or my phone. I can even control them including the Zwave power switch remotely through my phone.
My issue is I cannot control my Zwave power switch with Alexa. She can’t find it. I’ve tried using discovery in the Alexa app but no luck. I’ve even created a switches.items file and added the switch there.
I’m not sure what I’m missing and have looked online for a solution but no luck. If someone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.
Also while typing this, I’ve discovered a quirk. Whenever I sudo reboot openHab, I have to go back into add-ons and reinstall the Cloud Connector service.
