    Thumbs up Amazon Alexa Echo Stopped Working with Lutron

    I have a Caseta System integrated with Amazon Alexa. Has been working great forever. As of yesterday, 1/2/2016, it just stopped working. Alexa just stays- "lights are not responding.. check your internet connect.." Alexa can control the Philips Hue lights without any issues. My internet connection is fine and lights turn off and on via Lutron App, however does not work with Alexa anymore. Wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same problem? Was thinking the cloud integration was down between Lutron and Amazon?

    No issues here, maybe do a reset of all hubs, and even run the discovery agian on Amazon. (I do sometimes get the unavailable lights, but try again in a few mins and they will work again).

    Sorry by reset I just me pull the plug, not redoing the system.

    I had a similar problem with my LinkSys router. i have a moderately complex network setup with lots of devices and a couple of managed switches. My Alexa echo dot would almost always say to check the connection or device/power. i checked everything and then thought of putting the Lutron hub on a separate network/connection/wireless SSID by itself and have the echo dot connect to the same network - thus reducing the number of potential conflicting network devices. This way the devices communicate almost directly.

    I had an available Linksys RE-7000 range extender (http://a.co/cMj82gk) that i could use for this purpose. I connected the RE-7000 first to my main network as a range extender (SSID configured as Alexa_net) and then plugged the Lutron Bridge into the ethernet port on the bottom. Next, after restarting the devices and ensuring they all connected to the same network, everything worked as expected...and extremely fast. lights now turn of/off in less than a second and Alexa responds "ok" properly.
    This is also nice, because other (remote) devices can connect to the RE-7000 at the same time for WIFI access, so i get an isolated network and WIFI extender all in one. its also very simple to set up and manage.

    I will be adding some more Caseta switches/dimmers soon, but i dont expect the performance to deteriorate. I will update as needed.
    This would also work for larger system installs - like large homes with many devices spread out over a large footprint.
