Echo said "ok" after command but nothing.

Good morning,  I have followed the pined topic above about the ISY and the Amazon I think it should be working but when I ask "Alexa turn the living room lights ON" she "thinks" and then says "Ok"...... and nothing turns on.  Any ideas?

I don't see it there.  I do see the timer I set earlier but I don't see the Nest temp change I made (that worked) or the living room lights on command (but the insteon switch powered up and down with commands but no lights go on.) when I walk over and turn on the switch manually it works.  I have that switch set as a scene that turns on 3 different lights.

My concern is

 

... the insteon switch powered up and down with commands but no lights go on.

 

I don't know how an Insteon switch with a load can "power up and down" without the load turning on if you mean that the LEDs on the device lit up and down.

Sorry.  Yes when I say "alexa turn the living room lights on" the LRD lights on the switch go up but the lights go on.  When I say "Alexa ......lights off" the LEDs go down but no change in the lights.  When I press that switch the lights (three separate devises) turn on and the LED goes up.  It can also be controlled by the computer via the ISY program.   Does that make more seance?

What you are saying makes sense, but the response of the Insteon device does not. The only way the LEDs can go down without affecting the load is if it's a directly controlled device does not have a load connected.

 

What is connected to each of the three separate devices?

There are two switch banks, one on each wall.  Wall one has 2 insteon switches first powers a pendant and the second is the switch in question.  On the other wall the bank has 4 switches.  Two are insteon (one of the others is a regular switch and the other is a Hunter fan switch.)  One Insteon powers 9 can lights and the other powers  1 can light (wired this way so I can independently turn off the can light over the tv for glare). With that said I have abandon the switch in question and made the "9" switch the controler for the scene so the double tap localy turns on The 9 cans + the 1 can+ the pendents.  BUT this will not transfer to the Echo.  I then created a group in Echo called living room and it now works for the (9+1) ten cans but not the pendants.  Alexa is not discovering the tv pendant lights.... so, one other thing I am noticing as I struggle through this....  I have 8 switches, 1 Outlet and one 6link key pad so far in the ISY, (they all show up in and are functioning in the ISY console)   The echo only "discovers" the nest and 4 switches, One of witch is "living room / living room lights that is not in the ISY any more as a device or a scene, even after hitting discover on the Echo again....

 

Also when Echo "discovers" where does she get the names from.  The bottom name matches What I have in the ISY but the top is not the spoken work in the ISY.  I.E. Under discovered devises It will say Top: "Nine"   Bottom: " Living room 9", where the "living room 9" matches what it is called in the ISY but the spoken word in the ISY Note is Living room.  Oddly enough "Alexa turn on nine" will turn on the nine can lights.

Yep from the admin console everything works fine, including the things  the Echo does not discover. At the switch a single tap controls the load light and a double tap controls the scene. The echo does not seam to recognize my devices / scenes / and "spoken words I have programmed in the ISY.  The Echo will "discover " some of my devices and then has me build groups with in the Alexa - Smart home.

I think I found one answer on another thread...

Here's the Wiki instructions for configuration.  You might review the steps and see if it helps.

 

You no longer use "Notes" for devices but rather in ISY Portal you add spoken phrases to devices/programs and scenes then ask Alexa to discover.

 

 

Jon...

UDI really needs to remove references to spokens with regards to the notes field. This has continued to cause confusion for some time now.

Or sync them.

 

Some people use the local spoken field for their connection to Alexa using one of the hub emulators out there.... (Caveat, I'm not one of them!)
