Alexa Not Adding Devices...

Post by ebaugh »

I've been having a tough time adding devices to Alexa from a Z-way.me setup.

I'm able to add devices to the Raspberry Pi + Zway Razzberry shield.
I'm able to get them to show up in Homekit using the Homekit Gate.

I had a few connected to Alexa, but then it stopped adding (I've been migrating my Zwave devices from a Wink hub to this new setup)
So, I tried turning on/off the Alex plugin. No difference.
Tried turning on/off the skill. No difference.

Confirmed that remote access works. (that took some tweaking....it had worked before, but I've confirmed right now that it connects now)
Verified that I have the correct credentials as part of this.

Removed the few things that had shown up in Alexa (thru all of this they kept working... I just couldn't get anything new in).

Removed all of the z-way devices from Alexa. Rebooted numerous times during all of this.

Latest state: Rebooted. Verified that find.me-zway.me works. Tried disabling and re-enabling skill one more time.

Still no luck.

What's the magic set of steps to get things working again????

Alexa app changed at around 3.0.4
I had to reselect all of my Alexa devices on the Voice Assistant page.

Raspi 4(Buster), Zwave Version 3.0.6 x It's not my fault... I am not z-way team, just a user of a great system.

THANKS! That fixed it!

Had no idea that menu item existed... Wonder why this isn't referenced from the Alexa app.
Another weirdness of the UI...
