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 have 6 Alexa dots and I would like to name each one so 2 or 3 of them think I'm talking to them?

You can name them anything you want but the wake word is your problem. You have 3 choices. Computer, echo and alexa. Custom wake words would be great!!!!!

I know if you have a lot of echo's you can name them for a wake up so then don't get confused on which one you want? I just forgot where the info is at so I can do just that? Does anyone know?

Change your wake word on your phone app - open app>menu (the little mostly hamburger thing on the top left)>choose a device, and scroll down to the wake word>tap wake word and choose the one you want to use with that device. Choices are "Alexa", "Amazon", "Echo", and "Computer"

They really need to give us more options or make them completely customizable...
My Alexa environment includes :
1 full Sized Echo
4 Echo Dots
1 Echo Spot
1 Amazon Firestick with Alexa Voice Remote.
Several Hue Lights with a single bridge
4 Fire Tablets (2 of which now have "SHOW Capabilities" if switched to "Show Mode"!!!!
You should see My Apple Device List!

You can use a different "Wake Word" for 4 of them (Computer, Alexa, Echo, or Amazon).

Then repeat the "Wake Word" on two of the others that are far from one of the 4 that has the same "Wake Word".

It works!
