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.

Echo Show 8 Brightens up at random times for 3 seconds?
« on: June 13, 2020, 05:36:09 pm »
Every night at various times, perhaps once every 90 minutes or so, my Echo Show brightens up for only 2 to 3 seconds then fades back to dark.

Its very annoying.

Does this happen to anybody else?

Its does not happen at certain times (i.e.  3:30,  4:45, etc).

any suggestions would be appreciated. 

thanks

could be it is brightening up because it sees motion.    I have the show 5 in every room and it happens whenever I walk into a dark room

The camera shutter is shut. Is their some other sensor I don't know about?

imine is too.   not sure how it is exactly done but that is the reason why the lights get bright for a few seconds.

It happened again today at 6:07am.  I was awake.  No noise in the room.  no motion.  Just happened. ~2.5 secs. and off.

FYI,, This forum verification system is silly, annoying, and not needed.

The varification is a spam deterrent once you have a few posts under your belt you'll no longer have to do the verification steps. Most forums implementing this have a 5 post requirement.

forums have different ways of verification.   Not sure what the verification for this forum is since I have been a member before it was in effect or I just don't remember but other forums have captchas, math problems, moderation or just don't allow links for the first so many posts.
