I have a strange issue with my Controlicz setup:

I can ask Alexa for the temperature that my thermostat is set to and it responds with the correct value. However when I ask to set the temperature Alexa just says "I'm not quite sure what went wrong". It was working fine in the past and I can still set the thermostat temperature in Domoticz without any problems. I've tried forgetting and discovering the devices in Alexa but that hasn't made any difference.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Manuel
Actually I also just tried to disable and re-enable the skill but this didn't fix the issue unfortunately...

As much as I want you all to stay, i've added the ability to Delete yourself from Controlicz - it's accessible via your Profile on Controlicz

Hey Madgenie,

I hope you had a lovely Christmas! Did you get a chance to look at the issue with setting the temperature?

Thanks,
Manuel

Is there a way to have a device on a floorplan so it shows in the nice pretty jpg thing I did of the house on the Domoticz web page but not be discovered by Alexa because it's on the plan?

I have things like the Raspberry Pi Temp I like to see on the web page but don't want it in Alexa to add to the confusion of device names when running commands, I know in the app i can edit/delete but on a rediscovery it'll just reappear?

Hai Calzor,

you can give the user that you've setup for controlicz access permission on devices you want controlicz to dicover ( by default it can see all devices that are in room plans). By removing the devices you don't want to discover from the list, Alexa/Controlicz shouldn't discover them anymore.

Thanks Rvdb,

I had my user set as admin, changed it to user then set devices to it :)
Never knew this feature existed. Forgot to add new devices into a room/floor plan but all sorted now :)

Does anyone know what would cause Alexa to be able to discover devices via Controlicz, but not control them. I had this fully working at one point, but it's broken on me a couple of times. Recently, it hadn't been working because of an issue with the account I set up for it, but I fixed that, disabled the skill, and re-linked it. All of my devices show up on the Alexa site, but the Echo always tells me that the devices aren't responding. Thanks.
