Hello fellow AVS developers,
I am using the AVS Device SDK on a Raspberry Pi as a proof of concept for a device my company is developing. I followed the guide in the Alexa developer portal and built the sample application. Everything is working perfectly except for one thing: my timers and alarms do not go off.
When I make a request such as "set a timer for 10 seconds" or "set an alarm at 12:30 pm", Alexa is able to properly process the request and set the timer/alarm. I know this because when I tell Alexa to "check my alarms", she lists the alarms that I have set previously. However, when the time comes for the timer/alarm to go off, absolutely nothing happens. Alexa will remain idle throughout the designated time. Even if I turn on the DEBUG9 option for the sampleapp, nothing shows up in the log. Frankly, I am dumbfounded as to how to even begin fixing this issue.
I'm confident that this is not a time zone issue because my 10-seconds timers do go away after 10 seconds.
