Hi. Will amazon alexa routines support the vera smart home and its devices?  currently i cannot find any of my smart home device on the alexa routines as a device trigger.

I bought all of my smart home devices via amazon and its sad that support to my vera home smart devices is not supported.

you did not mention what vera devices you are talking about.   look like it is not an amazon issue but vera issue.

the following will give a list of devices that will not work with alexa.

If you have a Vera, create a scene there and have Alexa run the scene instead of using a routine. Alternatively you can run the "HA Bridge" on a pc and use that. Alexa can see the devices there. I currently have a Vera, but I don't use the native Alexa ability. I use the bridge as it came out first. Good luck!
