You can only use a cell phone Not a tablet for the setup!  At least for an android cells  your  phone Must be over 5.0 for greater!

I heard that Wynn hotel in Las Vegas has an Amazon Echo in every room. I don't know if they have anti-theft devices on them. Or maybe they are not secured at all and they'll just bill the guests $200 if it turns up missing.

Right- they have your credit card on file and will bill you if the Echo (or anything else) goes "missing".

A security deposit would not cover theft. It only covers property damage.

Hello

I would like to use it in a vacation home but worried someone will take it on the way out, I have a security deposit but would really like some way to secure it.  I have seen wall mounts on amazon but nothing that holds it in place for being removed.  Any ideas?

Thank you

Stuart
I do not know the answer to your question but since you asked for ideas....
I would be very careful on who I invite to my vacation home.  Especially if I have to check to make sure my Echo is still in the spot I left it PRIOR to the visitors walking out the door.

Also, what does a security deposit have to do w/securing an Echo?

Echo Technical Support / Re: Playing music from unlimited on echo

Yes, tried that - twice.  Both replies wanted me to upgrade the unlimited subscription. I have it on just the one Echo and I've learnt that one can only listen to unlimited music via voice commands. The first response told me I could do it via the app but made no attempt to explain the app error. The second response said I couldn't do it via the app but still ignored the reported error message. Based on this experience I'm ore likely to drop the 'unlimited' subscription completely as I rarely even try to use it.

Take it with you if you're leaving for extended periods. Or hide it somewhere when you aren't using it (and mute it or unplug it).

I suggest you ("you" as in anyone) contact Amazon Echo Technical Support if you're having persistent issues. Sometimes it's a bug that they need to know about so they can work on it.

Most blue tooth speakers will do what you're asking... they play music and the audio alerts from the phone... even my car radio does that as well...

Yep, my Jawbone Jambox does this.

I have a six year old $20 Bluetooth speaker that does it too. Most junk off brand Bluetooth speakers sold at the checkout line at Walgreens do this. Again, corporate idiocy.

I can't reconnect bc it says it's not registered but I don't have the option to do that again. HELP! I MISS ALEXA!
II don't understand your statement.  Alexa app>Settings>About - Device is registered to....  is where you can register or deregister/unregister your DOT.
