Alexa not detecting Virtual Switches
« on: June 16, 2018, 06:09:42 pm »
I have a vera edge with all my room lights and 2 scenes, one to turn on all the lights and one to turn em off with a Virtual Switch as a trigger.

From the Vera page where i select the items Amazon Alexa will have access to i dont see the virtual switch.

These are the steps ive done:

1. I have added the options to the D_VSwitch.xml luup file  (Attached)
<Category_Num>3</Category_Num>
<SubCategory_Num>0</SubCategory_Num>

2. Rebooted the vera

3. Checked versions
VERA -  1.7.3830
Virtual ON/OFF Switches v1.35

4. Checked advanced section on the device (File attached)

5. Waited for over 2 hours as other have mentioned the VS has appeared after a period of time


Anyone has any idea of what else can i do?

The virtual switch issue was discussed before. By now Alexa routines works. It might be easier to just use Alexa routine which triggers the scene. You do not need the virtual switch for that.
