Doorbell event responds 202 with no sound

I'm testing on an Amazon echo. I return a doorbell endpoint to Alexa system during discovery, but no doorbell shows up in the device list. I send a doorbell press event to the Alexa gateway and get a 202 response back, but no sound plays.


What do I need to do in order to get my echo to play a sound when a door bell press event occurs?

I messed with this for hours with the same problem. As a troubleshooting, try making a routine from the Alexa app for Alexa to say something when doorbell pressed. If that works either you are using an unsupported region or you haven't enabled door press for the device in the Alexa app. Also verify that you are using the client_id and client_secret from the permissions tab of your skill and that Send Alexa Events is enabled .
