Issues controling devices using Alexa
« on: October 15, 2018, 03:36:51 pm »
Starting this weekend, Alexa has not controlled any of my devices correctly.  Most of the time I get a response that the device is not responding (The devices respond almost instantaneously via the Vera app still).  I'm also experiencing commands that no longer work correctly.  For example, if I tell Alexa to dim the lights, then she turns the lights off completely.  Overall, nothing about using Alexa to control devices is working properly.  Anyone else experience this behaviour or have ideas of how to fix it?

Hi there,

Amazon services had some hiccups over the weekend. Amazon Alexa services were affected as well
