Damn, LOL. That's a first world problem AND solution right there. Just throw it in the trash, it's free anyway. You can use that tablet for not just installing echo app, FYI. What a waste. You could have at least donate it.

Yes there is a brief mode now or I don't know what it's called. I saw it on my app months ago. But the OP seem to do it himself. Good for him.

Well my echo does not only respond to okay I use a custom reply to it so it's way longer than the ok response. LOL. I like it though.

Had to make an account just for this post

three fast points

The brief mode seems to be capable of disabling the ok feature but is not in the states as far as I'm aware at least I cant find it in the settings and trust me I have been looking like a mad men

The original question is straight to the point, why do I need sound responses if it does not overwrite the annoying OKAY, which in it self is a sound response, you cant tell me they design this setting thinking "you know what Alexa shouting OKAY just does not cut it, what if we add a beep at the end and the anoying shouting." come on now.

Lastly, second comment lad, you are just being rude, you know it, not cool, poster does not need to apologize for that kind of behavior

I'm guessing your phone is rooted? Maybe that's why. It should push notifications on your phone automatically if it doesn't. And it's not rooted it may not just be compatible.

That's one of the things Alexa is lacking - recognition of pronunciation. The guys who made google Home are trying to up Amazon on this front.

My reminders are successfully pushed to my iPad.
However they will not push to my phone(huawei)

Calendar reminders successfully go to all devices.

Any advice?

I use smart plugs - “Alexa, goodnight” turns off the TV and a table light. The smart plugs also have a timer setting to switch off at 11.00pm.

Manstorm, this is a cool skill. Thank you for making it. After using it a few times I noticed that if I start Burglar Deterrent with office sounds and I come back several hours later, I hear the living room sounds and not the office sounds that I started with.

In another room on a different Echo, I do have living room sounds playing at the same time. Could having two Burglar Deterrent skills activate at the same time cause them both to eventually play the same sound effects?

I use a program/app/skill... whatever they're calling it now... Called YONOMI to make things work the most seamlessly. Funny thing is, if you use it, you won't even know it's there... it appears all of it is done by the Alexa and the Hub. Once you have that , you can go into the hub settings and set up an activity and with YONOMI can set up routines based on TIME. Kinda complex but it does work. I don't use any timers to turn anything but lights right now, so mine are all done through the Philips hUE app... and I really only use one as my wife likes to go to sleep with a colored light on and I can't deal with it if I wake up in the middle of the night, so I have a timer set to turn it off after she is asleep (which doesn't take but about half an hour)... Lots and lots of strategies to get what you want done, and so much of it is free like an eagle... including the Yonomi app/skill... look it up in the Alexa info on your computer or phone and set it up. I think the skill is computer doable and the actual app is phone based only.
