Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo Show . BLINK Cameras

add a 'wait' line to your routine, then have it "hide camera"
Create a 'routine' - and have the routine turn on the smartplug, wait 60 minutes (or whatever) and then turn off the smartplug.
How to start a smart plug with:

   "Alexa, turn <smartplug name> on"    (this part works fine now)

and then for the smartplug to turn off automatically after 60 minutes?    (I don't know how to set this part up)

Thank you.

Flic buttons work with routines now and are very powerful
Amazon Echo Discussion / Echo Show . BLINK Cameras

I have a routine in the alexa app where based upon motion from a BLINK camera I 'SHOW cameraname'.  Works fine but I would like build into the routine to stop showing the camera feed after 1 minute.  Currently  stays on a long time.
Ensure you went into your Amazon account, looked at your devices and deregister all the Dots from there.  I have always done this with the devices I give away or sell and have never had this issue.
Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexa Echo alerts across different accounts and properties
« Last post by Sandancer on January 01, 2022, 06:10:46 pm »
My parents have four Echo Dots, all of which were bought by me as gifts. They have all been reset and setup on my Dad's Amazon account and that's where they appear. None of his devices appear in my Alexa app, or vice versa. My own Echoes all appear in my own account.

However, when any kind of alert comes through, it goes to all units. So, if he has a delivery coming or send a message to another room, it comes through on all my Echo units. This wasn't a major problem until now, but my Dad got a Ring doorbell for Christmas. I set it up tonight and all the alerts are coming through to my house and his.

I really need to sort this, but there is no obvious link between the two accounts, other than the fact I bought his Echo units for him using my Amazon account. Can anyone help, please.
