When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

I just had to forget then rediscover most of my wemo switches.  anyone had to do the same recently?  just wondering if the problem was on my end or a bad alexa update.  I had no problems using them in the wemo app.

Likely Alexa issue.  Last week I needed to have Alexa rediscover my TP-L smart plugs.

So, I have another ongoing task besides every once in a while telling all Echo devices to "stop" or "off"; even if doing nothing.  Now, I will tell it weekly to "discover devices".

Alexa loses my wemo modules at least once a month so it is nothing new.

this was new to me.  I have had them for well over a year and some over two.  this was the first time - and so many at once...    I have nine wemo switches and had to forget/rediscover six.  I am  guessing the last alexa update broke the connection for some.

Haven't had any issues with my TP-Link outlets, yet, except for the TP-L servers going down a few months ago.
Another win for GH today.  Alexa couldn't even understand me correctly when i asked what time a local store closed
today.  Three tries and she got the name of the business wrong each time :(  Asked GH and she got it right the first time along with letting me know what time they closed today.  AND I finally got the TP-L outlets linked with GH.  It was me, not the product.  I had to update Kasa, Google Home and Google Assistant (I don't let most apps update by themselves).

had a good laugh today.  the other three quit working a bit ago so I had to do the forget/discover for them.  maybe that will be all for a while.
