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.

Disable voice announcement on start
« on: October 28, 2015, 11:33:42 am »
Does anyone know if there is there a way to turn off the Alexa voice prompt during startup?  I often get power interruptions in the middle of the night and when Alexa comes back online at 3AM she feels the need to announce her status.  This ends up scaring the whole family as we are being woken by a strange voice across the house talking loudly.  Iíve searched the Echo app with no luck finding this setting.

Thanks for any leads! Dustin.

I doubt if there is such a setting, so here are some suggestions:

Turn volume down at bedtime to Vol 1 or less
Plug Echo into a UPS so it doesn't turn off/on momentarily
Get a wall socket on/off switch for Echo you can easily reach
