OH 2.3 Build 1204
Running on Windows Server 2012
Alexa control via Hue Emulation
Over the last couple of months I’ve begun to notice a degradation in service between a spoken command to Alexa and the execution of that command by OH. I’ve been traveling frequently so I haven’t had the opportunity to examine the behavior over a long period of time.
For the last couple of years I have had Alexa and OH working together to execute voice commands quite reliably. You would speak the command and within a half second to a second, Alexa would respond 'OK" and the command would be executed. It seems like within the last 90 days or so the response time between asking Alexa to turn on the lights and the lights turning on now takes 5 seconds plus…the blue light just circles and circles and then finally you hear “OK”. Sometimes Alexa responds that the device is not available, yet the action triggers right afterwards.
I have looked through the logs and can find nothing that jumps out at me. The items are all tagged properly and have worked for quite some time. I haven’t added anything to the system and am stumped as to where I can look to see what is causing the delay.
I have yet to update to 2.4 as I understand I have to remove all of my devices from Alexa and have her rediscover them all again as changes occurred in the binding and the way Amazon stores the devices.
Anyone have any recommendations as to where I might look or adjust to get Alexa back to her snappy self?
