Will an Alexa device in a region always hit the same region Lambda endpoint?

Hello,

We are developing our first Alexa skill, and want to keep data collected in a region stored in the same region. Is a device located in, say, Paris, guaranteed to always hit (in our case) the Ireland Lambda endpoint? Or would it hit the default (or some other) endpoint if Ireland endpoint is down?

Hi there,

In custom skills you can have one one endpoint for all different regions as latency is very small which doesn't make any difference but if you are using smart home skills we request developer to create multiple region endpoint to reduce latency and failures.

You can also provide multiple endpoints in custom skills which means it first go to default endpoint is that endpoint is not giving response then its going to other region endpoint which is near to user locale.
