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.

Developed this problem lately.

Echo would all of a sudden stop recognizing my devices.
Switch to the Kasa app and they're all there, fully functional.
My solution:
In the alexa app delete any one of the devices. The re discover same device.
Now they all work via Alexa!
A frustrating situation as I have to do this every few days.
Any advice?

Have you enabled the Kasa skill for Alexa? If you've never enabled the Kasa skill, you need it now.

It used to be that you didn't need to enable skills for smart switches like Wemo or Kasa. But that was when Amazon didn't even have skills, so support for some of the more popular smart switches were built-in natively. Since skills came around, many of the older smart switches still worked, but with some glitches here and there.
