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.

Commands to other household Echo devices
« on: March 29, 2018, 04:06:53 pm »
Maybe everyone already knew this and I'm the only person that didn't know about it...
But just on a whim, I said "Alexa, play 106.5FM on kitchen" to the Echo in my office. Lo and behold the Echo Show in the kitchen began playing the station I requested. Then I said "Alexa, stop kitchen" and the Echo Show in the kitchen stopped playing. This could really come in handy because last night I wanted to play some soft music while sleeping. But for some reason, the Echo Dot in the bathroom heard me instead of the Echo on the nightstand next to me. It was playing rather loud so I would have to scream for the Echo Dot in the bathroom to hear me saying stop. I just got out of bed and unplugged it. Having just discovered commanding other household Echo devices, now I could just say "Alexa, stop master bathroom."
FYI each of my Echo devices is appropriately named for the room and they are located in. E.g. kitchen, master bathroom, office, dining room.

Yep, handy, worked for me, too, although it may have been a feature for a while.  Even so, a reminder here was useful since there are so many features to keep track of anymore.

Amazon can claim Alexa as one of the best inventions. Yup, undoubtedly its a futuristic product and the smart controls which runs on voice commands help my mom a lot.
