As of about two nights ago, Alexa can’t seem to find one of my routines. The others she finds just fine, but this one is lost. It’s still showing up in her smart app, and it works if I run it off the mobile app, but she just bonks when I try to run it through voice.
I’ve removed (and actually rebuilt) the routine, then added it back into her smart app and had her re-discover it. I actually had her perform device discovery without the routine’s virtual switch, and she came back one device short, then I added it back in and she reported back the correct amount of devices, so I know it’s in there, but she can’t seem to find it.
I should clarify that, yes, I’m using a virtual switch to run the routine…as I’m aware running a straight routine doesn’t work.
The switch name that suddenly started failing was Going To Bed.
When I try to switch it on through Echo, her lights just toggle blue and green and then there’s kind of a quiet ‘da-dunk’ tone. She says nothing.
When I went into the Alexa app, she appears to be hearing me just fine, she’s just not doing what I ask.
I changed the name of the virtual switch to Bedtime and she ran the operation just fine…so I guess maybe she doesn’t like the Going To Bed phrase anymore? Unfortunately, the ‘off’ commands that are associated with the routine are still not being sent through, but this seems to be a different issue that others are having. I sent through a support ticket on that part, so hopefully it gets addressed. Kind of hard to tell what’s actually wrong, especially given the ‘hiccup’ in the widspread system today…
