@JDRoberts thanks I read the cnet article but folks on Reddit say it doesn’t work and I couldn’t get it to work. I created a scene called “Night” and another called “white”
Discovery finds my bulbs Hall, Lamp Top and Lamp Bottom but the scenes do not show up as devices.
Saying Alexa, turn on Night" results in sorry message.
Have you made the native scene discovery work ?
Guess I till try IFTTT tomorrow.
Edit: Figured it out. You have to enable the Philips Hue Skill in Alexa app. Without it Echo only discovers the lights. With it you get your scenes. It added two extra scenes. “Colorloop in Master” and “All Hue Lights” Color loop is weird, just keeps changing the colors of all my lights. Don’t know why it creates that one. All Hue Lights makes sense I guess but I would rather make my own Echo groups.
But it did create what I wanted. I now have “Night in Master” and “White in Master”. So Alexa turn on Night in Master now makes all my lights Red 40% and White in Master makes them white at 100%.
I have to say Philips Hue is working very well and the app is so much faster than ST.
Update: Jinxed it, now when I ask Alexa “Turn on Night in Master” it says “Sorry the device is not responding” after a long pause. Rediscovery fixed it I hope it sticks.
