Alexa Devices in Home Assistant


I’ve previously been using the Alexa Media Player integration via HACS for TTS through my Alexa speakers / devices. I’ve been interested in Nabu Casa for a little while, not to mention its built-in TTS capabilties.

Today I signed up to Nabu Casa and removed the Alexa Media Player custom integration. However since doing that I can’t seem to get the Nabu Casa TTS working.

None of my Alexa speakers (devices) are showing in Home Assistant and so when trying TTS (tts.cloud_say), they’re not showing as available devices / entities. I can’t recall whether Alexa devices do show in Home Assistant as standard but I’m keen to get Nabu Casa TTS up and running.

Am I missing / forgetting something or is the standard TTS for Nabu Casa still through the Alexa Media Player custom integration? I’ve been adding / removing the Alexa / Home Assistant skill in hope that it was related to that and countless reboots, but not sure what I’m missing.


You still need the custom integration.

The standard integrations don’t allow for TTS to an Alexa device that’s why AMP exists. Nabu Casa changes nothing.

Okay thanks both. I guess I’m surprised that Nabu Casa advertises TTS off the back of a custom integration but not a massive issue - I’ll set it back up.

Thanks again
