When I tell Alexa to turn on the Vacumm it Turns on Beeps and just sits there. There are many post on on Amazon making the same complaint. Can Samsung fix this issue. It respond to Docking commands but there is nothing than can be said to make it clean.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have tried this method and it works. I used thr same method instead of google home mini I i use Alexa,the theory is the same.
I have the same issue. I can't even find a page where there is a list of recognised commands that should be accepted by Alexa. Just as others have said, it beeps when I tell it to "turn on" or "turn off", and with the latter, it will stop vacuuming if it is in that process, but no other commands that I can think of work. I was thinking I was simply using the wrong verbiage, since I couldn't find a list of correct commands to use.
I just got the R7070 too and am disappointed with the Alexa SmartThings Skill as well. It finds it just fine and thinks its a "Switch" so the only options are On and Off. I crreate the commands and it beeps once for the "On" action and does nothing. I read somewhere else that it should go into Auto Clean mode. What's up? Removing the Powerbot from Alexa and having it Re-Discover it does nothing to help.
Have you tried the command "Alexa, turn on robot vacuum." This command should start a cleaning cycle.
