    Actually It worked for couple of hours and now it does NOT anymore.

     

    In my skills on Echo app it says my zones but it shows like:  Zone Zone 2 and Zone Zone 3.  And it does not recognize any of the zones.

     

    Any suggestions?

    You mean under 'Smart Home'? Your 'Zone' names are not correct? When I first attempted to find new devices with 'Alexa' I had to push the button at least 5 times for all the zones and programs to show up, I would delete the ones that did not show up correctly. With each push 'she' found a few more. Currently 'she' will show many of the zones and programs 'off-line' - I then made 'Groups' that point to the 'Devices', being 'Zones' or 'Programs' or Groups of each and they seem to work correctly even when many state 'Off-line'. 'Alexa' is not perfect. Hope some of this works for you also.

    Yes this seems to have worked.  Have to keep pushing the discover button.

    A lot of my zones are also showing OFF-LINE

     

    I am going to try the "groups" method you described

     

    thanks

    Hi, all
    Other things to consider is the human names for your program and zones.
    Alexa have hard times to discover zone/program names like "PDG 1" or "Zone 1" just use lower case and short names that describe best your irrigation system.

    I use: "flowers", "lawn back", "lawn front", "drippy" for my zones and "morning", "daily", and "two days" for my programs.
    Alexa finds them nicely.

    Hope that helps.
    Josh
