ah ha. thanks keith, ady624. the relay is now found in alexa.
i’m not sure if this is for a new thread – but ill keep it here for now: the relay is in alexa, but the two switches listed under the relay are not.
here’s a picture of the main smartthings screen and then the screen that comes up when i click the Zwave multichannel smartthing but here is what i see when i load the amazon devices. turning on or off the Z-wave controller does nothing. NB: the “Lights” has something to do with the multichannel switch and has to be “on” or the whole relay doesnt work.
I tried creating simulated switches that i was thinking i could hook directly to the inside switches but i didn’t see how that would work. Is that the right path – to make main-menu switches that are a link to the sub-relay switches – and then give amazon permission to access those? No idea if it even works that way –
Thanks for both your replies. its got me in the right direction!
