[APP][Pro] Amazon - Alexa

Anyone have Amazon Basics light switches available as devices using this app? I searched this topic but no luck on these switches specifically so I figured I’d ask. I tried switching the device type from switch to light in the Alexa app, but that didn’t work. Any insights would be great. Love the app Jamie.

Hi sorry kinda new here.should the tile show now playing artist, song etc. I don’t see anything on the device tile. Even When I long press the now playing info is blank. If I start music by asking Alexa nothing seems to update. I can pause and start from the capabilities screen but no album art or artist info

Hope this makes sense

Hey @Jim_McAtear I just had a look on my system and the images, artists etc have all stopped for me as well …. It could be that sometime since I last updated the app Amazon have changed how their internal events work.

I’ll check it out when I next work on the app.

Ok thanks.
Is there a way to make an announcement on all of my echo that I have setup.

Yes there is a flow for making an announcement

Hello me again. Sorry is it a card or flow? If flow where do I find it

Thanks
Jim

First time i setup the app it found most of my kasa switch devices. 71/90 switches to be exact.

I tried to uninstall and re install and it now doesn’t see anything at all. I’ve tried to factory reset homie, new Alexa account no success every time now it doesn’t see my kasa switches from Alexa. The Alexa app works fine for control on kasa switches.

one more thing to note, when i search for plugs it finds the 6 kasa plugs i have every time. so is it something I’m not doing right with the light switches???

I had a look at the diagnostic @Darrel_Narayan

From my end it looks like the device should be showing up, what exaclty happens? If its a white screen with no devices … then this is a bug with Homey. Contact support and let them know that the timeout on the pairing screen for the 2023 HomeyPro is shorter then the HP2019 and I have discussed this and it has not been fixed since March 2023.

(Try adding them via the web portal)

If its not a white screen, then sorry im not sure whats going on.

Thanks

Hey Jamie,

I’d love to get the Echo hub added onto the test version of your app.

I generated a quick SVG (converted from an image) for the device and I’m happy to jump on a quick video call to get you whatever device IDs you need to register it.

Hi,
I installed Amazon Alexa APP. I’m trying to add an Alexa device without result. As soon as I choose a device, I’m asked to log to my Amazon profile. When the pop up opens, is very difficult to insert the code, because of continuous refresh, and when the code is inserted a message with paga not found appear.

Any idea?
Thankyou

Hello , i have the same problem

Same here :slight_smile:

I am also having the same issue as the posts above.

Same problem, Page not found :cry:

I had the same issue. Solution: you must go into your Amazon account via web browser and enable 2 factor authentication. I did this and ran it through my Google Authenticator and bam, problem solved. I was then able to integrate all my compatible Echo devices. Use the code that comes through the authenticator app, not the one that Amazon texts to you. Hope this helps.
