Echo Across the Pond (Europe) / Re: living in France, echo in english
« Last post by craftaddict on July 19, 2018, 07:45:18 am »
thanks for reply, I have had to switch over to french to have any skills. While I was in english no skills were available. I think the echo can see your IP address so switches over automatically to France. I have even tried calling amazon in France and the UK and no one could help. I am not too worried, just have to remember to speak french to her but hubby's french is not very good.

I'm in France, use the Dot in English but can only use French skills even though the Dot is linked to my English Amazon account.

I wish that this issue could be sorted out!

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: I got a Spot for 30 bucks yesterday...

YES! Get a Fire tablet instead if you just need it for viewing cams. The 7 inch will do it with a touch of the screen, as well as an 8"... but for full voice command control you'll need a 10" HD (2017 or later). They all will show what's on the cam, but voice control being the goal of Alexa and all their product like it... 150 bucks for the low capacity HD10 is still a bargain as it can be used for so much more if needed.

I already have all the Tablets and the rest of my ecosystem is MAC, so I cannot view the camera door bell with the laptop using the accompanying software... but I will find a way to work out what I want to happen. If it's not possible yet, it will be soon (as we always find out later)

I think I got a great deal on the cloud cams.  60 bucks apiece instead of 120.    was looking at them for a while now and almost got them last week, glad I waited.   

a spot for 30 sounds like a great deal. maybe one of these days you will be able to get them at that price without another purchase.  I guess once I get the cloudcams, I will need a spot or a show.  Maybe just a fire tablet and one of of those show stands or whatever they are called.   You can do more with a tablet than a show.

A Little excitement as things go around our home. We find joy in strange things sometimes... this time, I was looking for a Doorbell Video Cam set up and found Best Buy had a deal yesterday for a Ring Pro video Door Bell and an echo dot for an additional 30 dollars. I could sell it for half of retail and make out OK... but it's kinda cool and I think I'll keep it. Now I have Dots and echos and Spots and Alexa All over the damn place. This was, in my opinion one of the best "deals" through Prime days and such... not much else on my radar came in with great sale prices... even the Hue lights were lukewarm for me... Still waiting for Hue Day or something to get a good deal...

Barely had it long enough for that, but the other two out-perform the manufacturer’s estimates which may or may not be a guide.

It says up to 8 hours but I haven't tested that yet. The ones I have for the Echo and Dot say 4 hours but go 8-9 regularly.

was wanting real time info  :-)  never can go by what they say.
