Virtual ON/OFF Switches and Alexa device discovery

Hi Guys,

I have a few z-wave light switches connected to my veralite which Alexa finds and uses but I have recently flashed a Sonoff basic switch with a custom ESP8266 firmware, I am using two scenes on the vera (on and off) to send an http request to the Sonoff unit using LUA which works, I use a (Virtual ON/OFF Switches) Switch to toggle these two scenes.

My problem is this… The (Virtual ON/OFF Switches) device is not listed in the alexa devices list. Is there a way to make the virtual switch show up as a physical device whilst running discovery for new devices from the alexa app?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hey dude,
Upload the virtual switch XML file posted by Juppers in the link below (if you havent already):

I was having a similar issue and found that re-enabling the skill then waiting 24 hours before executing the discovery of devices worked. It appears to be a synch issue between Vera and your Echo/Dot.

Hope this helps,
