If my Lights are off, I used to be able to tell Alexa, “Set Lights to 30%.” (Or to any multiple of 10%.) The lights would turn on at 30% brightness. Now, Alexa replies, “Lights isn’t responding. Please check its network connection and power supply.” If instead I tell Alexa, “Turn Lights on” the Lights turn on (at whatever percentage they were last on). If Lights are already on, telling Alexa to “Set Lights to 30%” works as expected – lights dim (or brighten) to 30% brightness.
Is this failure, when Lights are off, to respond to the command to set Lights to a specified percentage perhaps a result of a recent update to the Philips Bridge, the Hue app, or the Alexa app? (I did a Hub update recently, but I didn’t notice if the problem began immediately thereafter.)
I like to turn on my bedroom Lights at 30% when I awake, then raise Lights to 60% a few minutes later, and finally set them to 100% a few minutes after that. I’d appreciate any suggestions about how to regain that capability.
I have: Amazon Echo, Amazon Echo Dot, Philips Bridge v2, several Philips dimmable bulbs
