Alexa-Hue Bridge Version 3.0.20

Version 3.0.20 of the Alexa-Hue Bridge has been released and is now available from the Indigo Plugin Store.

This version is now the official recommended V3 release - 3rd December 2017 - it should appear via the plugin update check. :)

There is still no solution for Amazon Echo Show or Echo (Gen 2) devices not working with discovery.

Thanks to a couple of users (@devros & @CliveS) Gen 2 Echo Dots have been tested and proven to work. Gen 2 Echo's work for issuing commands, it is just discovery that doesn't work.

This release (Version 3.0.19) has the following changes:
  • Minor Bug Fix
  • Code tidy-up.
As before, a couple of points to note:
  1. Port Address Change - if the port address is changed for an Alexa-hue Bridge, you must do another discovery as otherwise Alexa will continue to send feedback to the port she previously made a note off. If a discovery isn't done, then the plugin will never receive the Alexa request and Alexa will say "the device is not responding".
  2. Forget Devices - this cannot now be done from the iOS App. So the only way to do this is by logging on to your Alexa account at https://alexa.amazon.com or https://alexa.amazon.co.uk etc.
    From the left hand window, navigate to Smart Home and then Devices. Scroll to the bottom of the devices window and do a Forget All.
    You must do a Forget Devices if you migrate from Version 2 to Version 3 and then do a re-discovery - see the migration topic in the Wiki.
