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.

Stop Alexa guard from automatically turning on off lights
« on: October 20, 2019, 12:21:30 pm »
I have my own routine setup to adjust lighting levels.  When I arm the Burglar alarm system, it automatically starts controlling the lights in the entire house.  How can I disable that feature?

That is a feature called "Alexa Guard." It should be off by default unless you turned it on previously. Just go into the Alexa App and turn off Alexa Guard.

Or if you want to use Alexa Guard but not the lighting function, disable every smart light device from the Alexa Guard settings.
