I live in the UK and was given an Amazon Echo by a US relative as a gift - they thought it would work the same in the US as the UK. Alas, we all know server / app configurations are often different, so alas a number of things don’t work perfectly (i.e. I can’t select a UK postcode to get local news/weather, etc. However it still works pretty well.
I bought the new ST Hub - set-up was pretty straightforward. The Amazon Echo hardware integrates with the Hub, which is great, but alas when I logon from the Echo account to the ST hub (web interface) the Echo hardware does dot display the location profiles (e.g. home, away), so I am unable to link to the devices. Anyone tried this and got it working? I’m thinking it’s a IP address in the UK issue, which Echo doesn’t like.
