Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Device dosn't support that
« Last post by David N on May 08, 2021, 01:24:20 pm »
Why would I have a bedroom group for one light bulb? It would be like setting up a group email with only one email. I don't need groups for one item.
So you can say Alexa, lights on or off . Or you can keep repeating the entire device name everytime you want to change the state of the bulbs.

Echo Technical Support / Alexa using my words
« Last post by Andykarta on May 07, 2021, 09:59:40 pm »
Is there a way that I can say a key phrase and then alexa says a predefined thing back to me.  My specific example is, I say, 'Alexa, scan new guests.'  And Alexa says, 'Scanning...Geek Alert, Geek Alert, I'm kidding.  I'm a kidder.'  Do I have to learn C sharp or something?

Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexa Interview Study - Seeking Participants
« Last post by efetterolf on May 07, 2021, 03:26:13 pm »
Hi all! I'm a sociology graduate student at the University of Oxford, currently conducting research on how individuals relate to their home technology. I'm looking to interview Alexa users to explore their feelings about the device and how they've integrated Alexa into their day-to-day lives. This research has been approved by Oxford's ethics review board and is supervised by Dr. Ekaterina Hertog.

Participation would be comprised of a 30-60 minute interview. If you're interested, please fill out this form. Thanks so much! [https://forms.office.com/r/dFyXuh6DpM]

A few seconds of Googling would have provided most of the answers to your questions.

No I am not using any groups. Why would I have a bedroom group for one light bulb? It would be like setting up a group email with only one email. I don't need groups for one item.

As I said their is no paper with the bulb. I searched for a Philips Hue app. When I run this  get a message...

Get Started by Powering your Hue bridge and hook it up to tyour wi-fi router via the included cable. [What is a bridge and how is it hooked up]

If this device is on the same wi-fi network we will find your hue bridge automaticaly.

Does this mean I have to purchase a hue bridge as well? Other bulbs talk directly to the router.

I live in a hous. A house is made up of rooms. I have a bulb in three rooms. Each bulb has it's own individula name Living room, Bedroom, Hall. There are no groups. Why do you keep talking about groups. I DO NOT HAVE ANY GROUPS.

Hue Bulbs definitely have an app to download and help with the assignment of rooms. Once all working within the Hue app, you can ask Alexa to discover devices and ti will find them and operate them as assigned in Hue app.
