Hello, I’m using the Home Assistant Cloud (Nabucasa) and the Alexa Integration. When I use the UI, everything works as expected and the selected Entities can be discovered by Alexa.
However, I want to configure this in the
configuration.yaml, since I need to add some custom names to devices which should be controllable through alexa.
The problem is, that nothing gets discovered by Alexa when I configure my entities in the yaml file compared to configuration through the UI.
Here’s an excerpt of the relevant part of my configuration file:
cloud: !include alexa_config.yaml
alexa: filter: include_entities: - switch.sonoff1 - switch.sonoff2 - switch.sonoff3 entity_config: switch.sonoff1: name: Stehlampe description: Lampe am Sessel display_categories: LIGHT switch.sonoff2: name: Tischlampe description: Lampe auf Bücherregal display_categories: LIGHT switch.sonoff3: name: Flurlicht description: Licht im Flur display_categories: LIGHT
