KB: Alexa stops responding
If Alexa was working, but now responds commands with something like "Device is not responding", you simply need to update the devices.
Enabling SPI support does take a few steps, but it's not difficult.
- Either restart the gateway, or navigate to "Module Settings", select "Amazon Alexa". Scroll down and click on "Update Alexa"
- Wait 15 seconds for the new device list to generated and sent to Yombo which will be made available to Amazon's Alexa.
- Tell Alexa to scan for new devies: Alexa scan for new devices
The Alexa module will automatically push updates to Yombo about every 12 hours. Alexa will periodically ask for updated devices list without having to perform these steps, which allows for auto-correction - given enough time.
