I was able to use Alexa yesterday to control my Insteon devices, but now I cannot. Alexa is now telling me that the Insteon hub isnt responding. In the past when I had this problem I simply tell Alexa to rediscover Insteon devices. However, that is not even working to fix the problem. Anybody else having this issue? If you were able to resolve it, how did you do it? Thanks in advance.

I had an original Alexa not long after they first came out I had my Insteon lighting working at first but then after some time maybe a few months I forget just how long, Alexa started to tell me it could not find whatever light I was trying to operate. I was never able to get it working again after that. I've since disconnected Alexa and don't use it anymore.

Good luck, hope you can work things out.

I intermittently have the same problem but it goes away within hours by itself, that is, without me instructing Alexa to rediscover devices. Therefore, I'm assuming that it has to do with Alexa/Amazon but don't understand the reason why it would "forget" the connection and later refresh it (internal backup?).

I once had that problem. I disconnected all devices and reconnected them. After they rebooted the problem was resolved.
