I added two more devices to my SmartThings v2 hub, both Cree bulbs and I’m now having a problem that didn’t appear before.
I previously had two Cree bulbs, a Honeywell thermostat and a leak detector. With my previous setup I was only able to control the bulbs from the Echo, they apparently only allow on/off devices currently. I also found earlier that if I wanted to add a device, I had to unlink from the ST hub and relink before the Echo would see new devices.
I linked the two new bulbs to the ST hub and created a room for them. I then tried to discover them from the Alexa app to see if they had that fixed yet, no joy. So I unlinked and relinked Alexa. When the relink was complete I was asked if I wanted to control four devices, but all four were displayed as [object Object]. I selected all four just in case it was a glitch in timing and clicked Authorize. Although the result was “Alexa has been successfully linked with SmartThings”, she doesn’t find any of the four bulbs when set to discovery.
Were there changes with the recent firmware upgrade that would affect interaction with Alexa? Is there an issues with more than two Cree bulbs? How about with device names (Living Room 1, Living Room 2, Kitchen 1, Kitchen 2)? What else could it be?
