Echo Technical Support / Re: Sockets & lights disconnect at night

It wouldn't work in the app either. It's done the same thing 3 nights in a row . All smart lights etc offline and not all same make and on different apps
Since the lights do come back online and they are different makes look at what else is on when these fail. Also a cheep wifi repeater may help solve the issue, put it about half way between you problem lights and your router.

since you said they are not working in their own apps, and since you said there is more than one app,  then it is not an alexa problem.

did you check to see if they worked from their own app?   without knowing what lights and sockets you are using there really is no way to know.   could have been updating.

Echo Technical Support / Sockets & lights disconnect at night
« Last post by Acjb007 on November 18, 2022, 06:02:33 am »
Hi, fot the past few days I've got up early at 4am and all the smart sockets and lights aren't working. It says they're not connected. My echo works fine and WiFi is working. Around 7am they suddenly all start working again.

Any ideas how to stop them disconnecting?

what is the exact command you are giving?    I keep the names short and give short commands.    For example, the light is called spare bedroom, so I give the command, "turn on spare bedroom".   I do not say "turn on the spare bedroom light" because it is too wordy and can confuse.

Echo Technical Support / Echo 3rd Gen Lights up but 3 attempts to resend

Just purchased a second Echo thinking that the first (couple of years old now) was malfunctioning but it is doing exactly the same as the first one.

Responds by lighting when you say Alexa but takes 3 attempts before it'll actually do what you are asking. App shows device as offline. Internet issue? App issue? Device software issue? Tried a lot of fixes but nothing has helped.

Our router does have a 5G option, does this make any difference?

Thanks in advance for any advice!!
