I'm building an Alexa smart home skill for operating a particular device. The only operations I really need are for Alexa to be able to start, and stop the device.
I've found that the following commands work perfectly:
- "Alexa, turn on my (devicename) device".
- "Alexa, turn off my (devicename) device".
- "Alexa, start my (devicename) device".
However, I can't get "Alexa, stop my (devicename) device" to work. When I try this, Alexa makes no response, and the voice prompt exists. Therefore, I have no clue what I might be missing.
I am very new to developing Alexa skills, so I might be missing something very basic. Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be?
For this, I'm constrained to the alexa smart home skills model. For unstated reasons , using the custom model is not an option.
