Amazon Echo no longer controls Devices

My Echo was having trouble joining my wifi network today, so I reset it. After the reset it joined fine and I setup the device again. But now I can’t get it to control any devices in my SmartThings list. It says its controlling it and gives me the “OK” after I give it a command. But nothing happens. I’ve removed both the app from ST and from the Alexa app a few times now, both install just fine and when I discover devices it finds all of my devices. But it still won’t control any of them. Anyone had this happen before?



Known issue going on right now with ST.

Thanks, glad its not something I did.

My echo is not working either

My routines are not working at all…they were working fine about 24 hours ago…I wish they would send out global emails if they’re having an issue.

Thanks for the note… I haven’t had any trouble with my Echo today – I wonder if it is limited in scope to Hub V2 or certain types of devices. Both ZigBee and Z-Wave are working. I guess I shouldn’t jinx it.
