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.

Identification of Devices
« on: January 25, 2019, 12:57:20 pm »
Excuse my novice status.
With various switches from Sonoff (wired or plug in) or Maxcio (plug in), the Alexa app always identifies at least two devices, one shown as a 'switch' and the other as a 'house' with WiFi or as a 'bulb'.
The Sonoff wired switch is simply a switch and yet shows a 'house' in addition to the 'switch'.
The Sonoff plug-in does have a small uncontrollable LED,but shows a 'switch' and a 'house'.
The Maxcio plug-ins  do have a controllable LED as well as the switch, but these show a 'switch' and 2 x 'bulbs'.
These latter do have a name for the hardware and also a name for the switch and the LED.
How do I address these to remove the superfluous and misleading devices and retain full control?
