In the process of moving from WINK to HUBITAT this past week or so, I have successfully set up HUBITAT (currently running version 184.108.40.206) and made the transition of our set of five ALEXA-compliant and coordinated smart light bulbs to the new hub without much trouble. However, I have had no real success in moving our current Living Room Speaker device combination to HUBITAT so that I can use ALEXA voice commands (a prior workable combination I had worked out between the BROADLINK device and ALEXA directly). The devices involved are a PHILIPPS soundbar triggered by a BROADLINK RM PRO PLUS2. The BROADLINK device is currently connected appropriately to HUBITAT (using beta versions of the device code) as is the AMAZON ECHO SKILL app; the necessary IR codes are set, tested, work correctly (in the associated app) and are stored on the device. The Living Room Speaker (the Zone Label) is listed in the AMAZON ECHO SKILL app as a Selected Device (using BROADLINK).
When “discovered”, however, although ALEXA suggests commands will work, the ECHO then states “Sorry, Living Room Speaker is not responding” and the LRS appears in the device list but with a “There was a problem” indicated. I can control the BROADLINK device directly from my iPhone (using the IHC app) and, as mentioned above, using “test” on the HUBITAT app. I currently have three LRS listings on the ALEXA devices list (“why”, I don’t understand), one of which uses HUBITAT (POWER off) ;the others two, versions of BROADLINK. I have cleared all three at various times, together and separately, and reinstalled them to no avail. I currently have IHC and e-Control apps on my iPhone and both the ALEXA and HUBITAT apps on iPhone, iPad and laptop.
Suggestions? I am fairly computer literate but completely stumped as to how best to solve this dilemma.
