The Alexa Plus has a built in Zigbee hub and to my knowledge there is no support for the ability to use this hub. As the Alexa binding continues to be improved, hopefully in the near future, this will be an addition feature.

Depending on your home automation setup there are a few ways for OH to work with Alexa. I also have an Alexa Plus with no additional hub and it works good with OH. If you have questions or need assistance getting things setup don’t hesitate to ask.
