Title: Adjust sensitivity or tweak ESP?
Post by: Strahan on September 11, 2018, 09:52:50 pm
Hi.  Is there any way to adjust mic sensitivity or manage ESP settings?  I saw someone asked two years ago but to no avail, was hoping maybe in that time a method was found.  My upstairs Echos are in my living room, bathroom, hallway, bedroom, and office.  I can be standing 3 feet from the LR echo and say "alexa, (whatever)" and down the hall the thermostat Echo will reply.  I disabled the mic on that one.  Now the bathroom one will grab it sometimes.  I keep that door shut.  That fixed it, but it's still really aggravating that I have to.  I thought ESP was supposed to have the Echo with the strongest read on your voice handle the command.  I find it hard to believe the bathroom down the hall had a better read than the one three feet from me lol.

Use different wake words for the conflicting devices. I have a Spot and Echo in the kitchen using “Echo” and “Alexa” as the respective wake words.

the best you can do is to change echo locations.  it happens to me sometimes since I have three in a very small apartment.  I had to move one further into a room for it to stop.
