Hi @Jibran!

 

Fibaro skills should work on all Amazon devices normally fitted with Alexa (for example, Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, but NOT Amazon Kindle devices).

The region and language is more important.

    If you change the location back to the local, do you lose the skill, or does it stay once installed?

    Amazon provided a better (?) way:

     

    I would like to inform to you that, unfortunately we are currently not supporting FIBARO Skill on Amazon Australia Marketplace, I will forward your feedback to the concerned department so that we can work with FIBARO and make this skill available for Echo device in Australia.

     

    In this case, as an alternative until the skill is launched, you can switch your marketplace to Amazon.com and continue using this skill.

     

    Here are the steps to switch your marketplace to Amazon.com:

     

    1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices page on Amazon.com.au (

    Please login or register to see this link.

    )

     

    2. Select the Settings tab.

     

    3. Under the ‘Current Country’ of Country Settings heading, There will be a text stating "You are currently linked to shop on Amazon.com.au. Click here to learn more about other Amazon sites you are eligible to shop on based on your country of residence.".

     

    4. Select the "here" link to see the available options.

     

    5. Click the "Learn about transferring your Kindle account to Amazon.com" link.

     

    6. Select the "Transfer your Kindle account to Amazon.com" button and follow the on-screen instructions.

     

    Now please deregister and register your Echo device.

     

    Use the Alexa app to deregister your device:

     

    1. From the Menu, select "Settings."

    2. Select your device, and then scroll down and select "Deregister."

    3. In the message that appears, select "Deregister" again.

     

    You can also deregister your device from the Manage Your Content and Devices page:

     

    (

    Please login or register to see this link.

    )

     

    Register your device:

     

    1. Press and hold the Microphone off and Volume down buttons at the same time until the light ring turns orange (about 20 seconds). Then the light ring turns blue.

    2. Wait for the light ring to turn off and on again. The light ring then turns orange again, and your Echo device enters setup mode.

    3. Open the Alexa app to connect your device to a Wi-Fi network and register it to your Amazon account.

     

    Note: Make sure that you select English (US) when you are registering the device again.

     

    I apologize for the delay and inconvenience caused to you in this regard.

    However, now I can register it, and from the web page it has both Fibaro skills installed, if I just say "Alexa, turn on the floor heater" or whatever, it says "Sorry, I don't understand Floor Heater"

     

    What am I missing!

     

    If I go to the Smart Home>Devices page, and press discover, it only finds my HEOS stereo system, and no Fibaro units or devices. Running HC2 and version 4.16

    Skills are "region locked". Meaning, once you change back, you'll lose any settings that aren't supported in your region.

    Hi!

     

    my question is: why I can see on Amazon Alexa / Smart Home only 5 from 150 devices? 

    now I can see only some dimmers (2) / some wall plugs (2) / and FIbaro RGBW controller. Where are my other devices?

     

    thank you!

    Maybe in your FIBARO ID you have a lot of HC2 and HCL, when i didn't see the dispositives that i have on showroom, i was create a new fibaro id account and synchronize the hc that i have on showroom, after this i be able to see on my discover devices the items.

    (i tryed selecting hc of showroom from home center list (through alexa commands) and i have control from ·whole house command" but the missing persist).

    Good luck.
