IMPORTANT: It is necessary to configure parameters using the language set on your Alexa-compatible device. Also, pay attention to configure Device Name and Room Name using the same language, only English OR only German. It is not possible to use an English word for the device name and a German one for the room name and vice-versa. This error will cause the failure of the feature.
