Alexa forgets all emulated hue / wemo devices
« on: January 02, 2023, 07:18:04 am »
Hi all. I am at my whits end!

So I have several smart plugs and bulbs. They run Tasmota and use either the emulated hue or wemo plug systems. And for nearly two years everything is great. But all of a sudden Alexa just deletes the devices, They don't show on the app,voice "ie Sorry I couldn't find a device named ____"

If I run a discovery they will reshow up and work perfectly, even with voice. Then after a few hours, totally missing from account.

I have been back and forth with Amazon for hours on end and the constant "reinstall the alexa app" is getting tiresome

If _anyone_ has any idea what on earth they have changed. Or what's wrong please come forward.

Thankyou so much!

I have several wemo emulator ESP2866 modules all programed  with Ardiuno IDE.
These are setup as more then one wemo device.  I've yet to experiance your issue, however I've never used Tasmota.

I have seen issues with hue emulators and Alexa. If you have a spare developement board you might want to test using a different way of programing a wemo or hue emulator to see if the issue persists for the new devices.
