Random switches added to Alexa Devices




I purchased a number of Switchbots and a hub. They are excellent and work really well, so thanks!


I have a weird issue though, I enabled all of my switchbots for Alexa, which works fine, but random other switchbots that aren't mine have started showing up in my Alexa devices (see screenshot - all the offline ones). The ones that aren't mine I have disabled - I tried removing them but they just come back. Every so often some more appear and I have to disable them too, otherwise the names interfere with my own switchbots.


It's like other people's switchbots are showing up on my account.


Please help! Thanks!

Thanks for your reply! I have sent the e-mail a couple of days ago, did you receive it?

Hi Gez,


Yes, we got your email with more detailed information, and able to identify the problem.


Click on "forget all" under devices of Alexa setting page.


We managed to solve the issue weeks ago on the server side. Once you apply the remedy above, no more randomly devices will appear then.

    I have a number of different kinds of smart devices assigned to particular rooms in my google home, including switchbots. when I give a specific command for a switchbot, it works fine, but if I give a room level command, such as, turn on all the living room lights, all of the devices in the living room respond, except for the switchbot (even though they are most definitely assigned to that room in Google home). This occurs in every room where I have a switchbot, and all batteries are fine on the switchbots, so this is a program level issue. please tell me how to fix this, or if you are already aware that this is an issue that you are working on currently.

    Hi,there. I'm doubted that even this writings are written on your post :) On the feedback messanger, you guys asked me to upload my firmware info on my app and devices. And I sent you and waited for 4 days(2days if counting business days). Today, I got the message I didnt reply anything. Wow.... A week ago, I firstly post that your device doesn't recognize the basic timer and the things I've been replied are what is your firmware version? and ignoring messages...

    La télécommande freebox semble être une telecommande radio et non IR. Impossible de l’ajouter au hub ??
