Amazon Alexa - Manual Setup - App Skill Discovery problem

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f739ed2dae8>

Hi HA Family,

I got a bit of a problem with my Alexa integration setup following this MANUAL procedure https://www.home-assistant.io/integrations/alexa.smart_home/

All went well (sort off)

  • Creating Amazon Skill - DONE
  • Creating AWS Lambda Function - DONE
  • Test the LAMBDA Function - DONE (Discovery return with a VERY long list of devices)
  • Configure the Smart Home Service Endpoint - DONE
  • Developer Account Linking - DONE
  • Enable Dev Skill in Mobile APP - DONE

This is where the strange problem shows up:

  • Running Discover Devices after Skill linking --> only 4 devices got discovered (2x wemo and my 2x echo devices)

in Contrast to more than 20 devices returned using the Lambda Discovery Test

Had any experienced this?
Any tips you can share to resolve this kind of weird gap?

Thanks in advance.
Erick

No takers? :frowning:

I just finished doing this, and everything seems to go well but alexa doesnt find any devices at all. I cant add anything to your request, hopefully someone can come help us both :slight_smile:

I totally dumped the Alexa Integration setup above and followed the haaska approach https://github.com/mike-grant/haaska/wiki

And it worked perfectly for me now.

UPDATE – 24th of May 2020
Compared the haaska procedure with the Manual integration procedure, (and also noticed a recent update on the official HA integration/Alexa doc. I followed it again and it worked. Key change for me was selecting the right region (in my case being based in Australia, the instructions point for using the Oregon region for my Lambda function).

All OK now as per HA Manual Alexa integration approach.
Legend!!!

I got the same problem. Function shows the devices but discovery from Alexa is not showing anything. Did you find a solution?
