  • Insteon Hub with Alexa in Canada

    When do you think, the skill for Alexa (Echo Plus) will be avalable for Canada ?

    There are recent posts about this already. You would need to contact Amazon as insteon does not control Anson skills releases

      I've contacted both Amazon Canada and Insteon and all they say is it is being worked on. I have a bunch of Insteon light switches and lamp/appliance modules and got my Echo and Dot working with them by changing my location to the US. I mainly use Alexa to control the lights and play music, so it is really just an annoyance that this skill doesn't work in Canada. If I want the weather for where I live, I just need to state the city and province I live in.

      I did need to reset my Echo and set it up again using an account associated with a valid US address rather than an account. Once I did this I was able to enable the Insteon skill and get it working. Hope that helps you until this skill is available in Canada.

        Info only: Insteon can only state what Amazon tells them. Insteon has no control of what Amazon actually does. But they do have a bit of influence ;)
