Recently I had a switch stop working correctly with echo it has been working for months. I believe it is when they integrated routines into echo.
In smart things I have a device set up as a switch called gate. I can tell alexa to turn off the switch and she turns it off no problem. BUT if i tell her to turn on the switch I get a response of “Im not quite sure how to help you with that” I am not sure if I can view a log in echo or where to even look at what echo tried to do or not do.
I have tried changing a few things around testing and have decided echo is ignorant…
if I add the switch to an echo group and tell her to turn the GROUP name on or off it works
If i tell her to turn off the switch it works it seems to only be a problem turning on the switch
honestly I have lost track of what combo’s DO work. I do know for sure it refuses to turn on the switch
anyone have any suggestions on what or where to look ?
