Vera skill Canada?
« on: November 16, 2017, 06:00:55 pm »
I was using Alexa vera skills with my US account. After switching to my Canada account today, I could not find the skill in the list. Does anyone know if vera supports Canada market now?

Thanks.

Glad I'm not the only one seeing this.

Looks like I'll have to move back to HABridge until this gets sorted out.

Canada Skill enabling is in the analysis as we speak. I will have more details next week.

Can't find it either in Canada, can't wait to try it out. I'll stick with ha-bridge for now.

Hello Folks,

Although we truly wanted to have this ready for Holidays, we have too much on our plate to chew, so we rather not promise anything we cannot deliver in time. The Canadian version of the skill has been pushed to Q1 2018 for development.

Disappointed also that this isn't available for Canadians. It's too bad the region limitation couldn't just be removed.

If you're running homebridge for Siri, check this out. It integrates well to allow Alexa access to your homebridge devices (which are essentially your Vera devices.)

I was able to sign up for the Vera Beta skill and download the skill that way in Canada.  Its not perfect but its good enough until Canadian release. 

I also appreciate the honesty of the Vera team with regards to the Vera Control skill release date for Canada.  I am confident they will release a refined skill, but it would be nice to have a more exact date than Q1 of 2018.

Could you give some steps how to do that? I try to login to alexa.amazon.com but get redirected to amazon.ca
