Alexa routines, can’t use switches as triggers

Hi! I recently started with the configuration of my home with a lot of sonoff smart switches and Alexa. Everything goes well, but since yesterday I cannot do a new routine using switches as triggers . It only shows blink cam’s, Nuki device and my son echo show 3. Nothing more, any idea? I’ve tried to deactivate the skill and activate it again. But nothing. Please help ! Ty!

Hi. In Alexa, only a few devices support use as triggers, most use as actions. I guess that’s why you can’t see your switchs in the trigger list.

Hi! That’s right, but a few days earlier i made a lot of routines using this switches as triggers. Now the routines are atolladero working but ir you edit the routine it doesn’t show the trigger anymore.

Like @Erin aid, most devices in Alexa can only be set as actions, that’s a limitation of Alexa.
actually, we are working with Alexa team to integrate a beta version of API, which enable the device as trigger, once we finished the integration will roll out this feature to you.

ty for the answer. i thought that it was available cause i made many routines last week. ok I look forward to it. ty again
