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.

How switch off all smartplugs in the house with one command?
« on: December 02, 2020, 11:36:08 am »
I have several Echo smartplugs in different rooms.

I would like to issue a single command to say switch them all off.  Is this possible?

All I can see in the Alexa app is something to do with a room group but I don't allocate my smartplugs to rooms in the settings.

Can anyone kindly advise.

Try this:
Create a new routine and give it a name. Then “Alexa, turn off all plugs”
Add action > Smart Home
Then select All Devices. Select each device individually to Power Off.
Save.

you can also check the smartplugs own app to see if you can create a scene there to turn them all off.  Then you may be able to discover the scene with alexa and use it.

Thank you.


I got that to work but it took a bit of time. Alexa is not really user-friendly enough.

If you want an easier way, open the device dashboard on a fire tablet. There is an all plugs on/off button at the top of the screen.
