I’m on Hassio 0.100.1 and I only used it to turn on/off devices, such as the TV or AC via broadlink. But now with the errors popping up on amazons end where did everyone move to?
- Alexa saying device is malfunctioning when telling Alexa to turn on TV
- Turning on the aircon triggers the switch on then immediately switches back off.
I did a little work around but not sure if it’s too much just to turn on or off a device but this is what I have anyways.

Restart Home Assistant, then log into https://alexa.amazon.com, go to smart home > devices > discover
Once the input_booleans are found go to the app, create a routine with alexa says. I just chose:
- Alexa, turn on the air con
- Alexa, turn off the air con
In each of these routines, for the action select the input_booleans that was discovered earlier: smart home > Alexa Trigger Air Con
The automation config will do the rest based on current state of the switch.aircon
This works for me whether its overkill or not lol I’m just hoping it gets fixed soon
