Can't find Alexa smart home trigger


Hi there, I want to create an Alexa Skill for my smart home. I have selected the server Ireland. Unfortunately I can't select the "Alexa smart home" trigger, because it isn't offered to me. When I with the the server "North Virgina", I can select it.

Does anyone know how I can solve this problem?

Thanks for reaching out.

With regard to your question about selecting Alexa smart home trigger in Ireland region, you need to match the selected Alexa region where you can deploy your skill with the associated AWS Lambda region. Please reference the following page for your information. [1]

Here is a reference about the solution: When create a Lambda function:

  1. Sign in to the AWS management console
  2. Create an IAM policy (Locate under IAM dashboard and click on Policies page to Create Policy)
  3. Create an IAM role (Locate under IAM dashboard and click on Roles page to Create Role)
  4. Create a Lambda function (Navigate to the Lambda console and select the correct region for your Lambda function)
  • In your case, it is recommended to choose Europe as the Endpoint region, and EU (Ireland) as your AWS Lambda region.

Please let us know if you need further assistance.
