I think I mentioned in another similar topic, not sure how I missed this one,  :D

V3 Api Alexa Skill is work in progress as we speak. We have enough on our plates for these holidays but we should be back on track early 2018

Awesome to hear, can't wait for the beta! Have a great holiday and don't work too hard over it...

Hey uhh so this seems to be kinda working now? At least, the devices and scenes are showing up as supported. Gonna try it out tonight...

Interestingly enough some scenes are missing. Is there any filtering going on here? I see my "good night" scene in the Smart Home section, but when trying to browse under routines it is missing.

Figured out why my scenes were missing... Vera seems to have classified one of the Zooz outlets I use to control power to our Echo's as a garage door - a prohibited device. Once I sorted that out, I was able to add a scene to a routine! Interestingly enough, that only worked once, around noon PDT yesterday. Today, I'm not even able to add the same scene to another routine, although it's still showing up in the first one...

Anybody out there looking to know when lighting control through the Alexa application would be enabled, check control of your lighting within the "Smarthome" section of the Alexa application. It's finally available, at least for me.  :D Controlling scenes within the "Routines" section is still not available, however you can now create a "Routine" by adding as many individual devices as you like to the "action" of your "Routine"!!! This gives you the ability to give a custom command to turn on or off devices or a device with the addition of some other Alexa functionalities  8)

A useful new Alexa option. I seem to have devices supported and some scenes but not Vera ones.

Useful nevertheless and will be more so when scenes are fully supported. In another thread I wanted to turn off all my lights by using a Turn Off command for a scene or "Run" scene X as it is strange now Turning  On something you want to go off. Even better now though I have a routine in which I say "Alexa Go dark" and then have listed all the devices to turn off. At the end Alexa then says "Good night" back to me. In future I will just make the Routine run the relevant Vera scene

I had trouble getting Alexa to see devices that I added to Vera after I had done my initial setup. I found out that I needed to Disable the Skill in the Alexa App and then Re-Enable it and it would then detect all my devices. Havent setup scenes yet, but you might try this and let me know.

THANKS

Has the Alexa routine functionality been implemented yet?

Thanks fryswatter .  Just to verify before I change things - Vera scenes are supported within the Alexa routines and not just devices?

Thanks !!!!!

That is correct, Vera scenes are supported in Alexa routines. However, I haven't tried a mixture of devices and a scene in the Alexa routine. Can't imagine why that wouldn't work, but why bother unless it's a non-zwave device that Alexa can control and not Vera.
