Is there ever any plan to update the Alexa skill to allow controlling of Zigbee smart devices via Alexa?  This is one of the main reasons why I bought the device was the it claimed to have Zigbee functionality along with Alexa support.  When it lacks the basic functionality of Alexa Turn on Lightbulb that seems like a huge wasted oportunity .

From what we have been told by our enigeering staff this is in the works.  We are working with Amazon to certify the skill when that process completes you should then have this abilty.  until then the Hub controls can be accessed through the Deco App

I also bought an M9 pack with Zigbee thinking that this would work.

Would appreciate any updates on the subject.

Any update on this skill? This would be a great way to replace my smart things hub as well as my kivo and was a big selling point, however Sally out does not appear that your Alexa skill set turning on lights and or locking doors

We got an update over the weekend.  This project enhanment has currently been shelved, at least for the moment, as it did not receive certifaication from Amazon.  For this fuction to be allowed a service must recieve Amaon's WWA (works with Alexa) certification.  The R and D team will re-evalutate and reach out to Amazon to see if certification is possible.  This will regretably take time.

Is it possible to receive a refund or replacement units from TP-link

 

I specifically bought 3 of these M9 units to work with my zigbee environment and nearly a year later it does not and seems like it never will.  I really feel cheated
