Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexa echo & app arenít doing the same thing

Alexa echo & app arenít doing the same thing
I can use the alexa App to Ďswitch off living room lampsí (2 lamps on 2 Wi-Fi plugs). However, when I ask my echo to do it, it only switches off 1 of the plugs. Iíve tried to reset both plugs but it still doesnít work. Iíve reset the echo. But when I reset the echo it relearns the wrong command and only switches off 1 plug. The same phrase on Alexa app switches off both plugs. Whatís going on? I feel Iíve tried everything but no one knows how to fix it?
Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: set Timer by Another Zone Region

Set a timer adding or subtracting the time difference for the country in question.
PROBLEM SOLVED: I've always been working from the Wyze app point of view on the iPhone. However, the problem was a setting in the Alexa app on the iPhone. At the home screen of the Alexa app on the iPhone, there is a device entry for the "Front Doorbell." If you select that device, a Live View of the Wyze Video Doorbell comes up. In the upper right corner select the "gear icon." This will bring up a display for the device and ... The Notification Settings! The "Doorbell Press Notification" was already set to ON, but the "Person Detection Notifications" was set to OFF! Wow. How simple. Why didn't anyone including the Wyze support bot mention that! So, problem solved. The iPhone and Echo now announce doorbell presses and person motion detection. Close this problem out, please.
To the two previous replies, thanks for thinking about this. However, a doorbell event goes to the iPhone AND the Echo; a motion event goes to the iPhone and does NOT go to the Echo.  Wyze gets 3 out of 4 correct. They're only missing the motion event notification to the Echo. (And, yes, I have every event/notification box checked.) The communication paths are obviously there. So, is the problem on the Alexa Wyze skill or does the problem originate on the Wyze doorbell app? 
Amazon owns Echo/Alexa. Amazon owns Ring. So Ring doorbells work with Echo Show.
Wyze owns Wyze Doorbell. Google owns Nest Doorbell. Neither work with Echo Show. Any guesses why?
Amazon Echo Discussion / set Timer by Another Zone Region

Hi EveryOne
I Have 3 Types of Alexa . Alexa echo dot 5th and 4th and show 15
when i say to it to set timer for example 20 hours (in my region in IRAN) , its OK.but i wanna say it to set timer based on Time Zone in another Country For Example  Canada Vancouver . How Can i Command That?
Set alarm for 8 a.m in Canada Vancouver? (not true)
do you have wyze notifications turned in the phone settings?  also, I am not that familiar with the wyze app but check their app and see if you have notifications enable for it.
I have an Echo 8 and a Wyze Video Doorbell V2 - both at current firmware levels. My iPhone and Echo both react to doorbell rings and get notifications. However, while the iPhone gets motion alerts, the Echo does not show any motion notifications. Why not? Is there some special action that I need to do to link the Wyze motion alerts to my Amazon/Echo account? I can't imagine any technical/programming reason that any notification that the iPhone Wyze app gets can't be passed on to the Echo - either directly or indirectly. I do no want to use a facility such as IFTTT.

All my Zigbee devices are either on HUE or the troubling shades are now on a graywind supplied multi mode gateway supporting wireless protocol: 2.4G Wi-Fi, Zigbee, BLE, & Mesh.

After several months now without a single failure of any zigbee device linked through a separate hub to my echo plus I am now ready to call all the drop failures of direct connected devices to the echo build-in hub caused by the amazon side and hence gives me a degree of satisfaction to have found the route cause of my previous failures to keep my devices consistently operable.

what hub did you get?    I do not use the hub on the echo devices either.   I just make sure whatever smart device I get, it will work with wifi,ring or hue hubs.
