Virtual switch and Alexa- am I missing something?


#1

I've used virtual devices on Smartthings, but now fully committed to Hubitat. I'll be darn if I can't get a virtual switch to be found by Alexa.
Is there something special in making a virtual device in Hubitat to be seen by Alexa?

Did you install the Amazon Echo Skill App in Hubitat? You have to define which Virtual Switch or other device should be added.

Yes I did, but I forgot you have to open the app and click on the particular device for Alexa to see. I just checked the virtual switch and instantly got a notification from alexa of a new device. Thank you soooooo much!
