    Alexa routine works, but why do I see error msgs in log?

    I setup a few Alexa routines which interface with HS3 and they have worked fine for some time.

    Although they are still working, suddenly I see these messages in my syslog, when the routine is invoked :
    Apr-06 17:44:48 Warning JSON controldevicebyvalue ref 219 not found
    Apr-06 17:44:47 Error Problem serializing data for JSON request: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
    Anyone know what this means and how to fix?

    Thanks for your help!

    The error message is basically saying it is trying to control a device which no longer exists.

    Check to see if you have a device which has a reference of 219.


      Thanks Jon00. Some of my Alexa routines, but not all, *had* stopped working and in an effort to get them working, I had made a slight mod. They then started working again, but it seems the mod wasn't the fix and on the contrary, were the cause of these msgs. Reverted - and all back to normal.
