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.

"Alexa, I'm leaving" no longer works for me...
« on: January 03, 2021, 06:23:47 pm »
I used to say "Alexa, I'm leaving" and she'd turn guard on. Now she doesn't know what I mean and tries to look stuff up for me instead.  I am speaking very clearly and I've now tried it on all of my devices, and she doesn't understand anymore. However, when I tell her to turn Guard on, she does that and she always understands me when I come home and say "Alexa, I'm home", so she turns Guard off that way.
Anyone have any ideas on what I can check? I've made absolutely no changes since this issues started up a couple weeks ago, so don't know why this is a problem.  Can someone remind me of the steps to set this up again to work?

did you check history to see what alexa is hearing?  Is this a routine you created?  If so, delete it then recreate it.
