Amazon Echo Discussion / Volume seems lower . . .
« Last post by FarmerBob on March 17, 2019, 01:30:03 am »
I traded my defective Dot in for an Echo Gen2 before Christmas (when everything Echo worked like a charm) and for quite some time I have noticed that her volume was loud quite a bit louder than the Dot. I have had to change levels in the Routines and when I verbally set them. The other day she automatically connected to a Bluetooth receiver and I had a heck of a time getting it disconnected and to stay disconnected. After that now every time I call on her when she's set at the level I usually use her at, can barely hear her. And at really loud levels, it sound just fine, where before she would distort. The Dot was level 5, level 4 is loud enough on the Echo, now it's hard to hear.

Can the audio output stage be damaged from the "Bluetooth Incident"?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Your Provider Can’t Do That!
« Last post by jwlv on March 16, 2019, 09:21:29 pm »
Lately one of my Hue bulbs will no longer turn on or off. I get the response “your provider can’t do that.”
What’s odd however is that I CAN say turn light to 100% or whatever % and it will respond to that.  It’s just on or off that gets the provider response...
Anyone know what’s going on?

Only 1 bulb is doing that? How many other Hue bulbs do you have? And all of the other ones are working fine?
Maybe disconnect that 1 bulb, factory reset it, and the set it up again as new. Might also be helpful to power cycle everything, including all of the Hue bulbs, the Hue bridge, and your Echo devices.

Have you tried a different order in the command?  I say "Alexa, Living room on" or "Alexa, Living room off".

Oddly no. Doesn’t work.

But I just tried “Alexa. Turn living room to 40%” and that works just fine.

Weird...

post the exact command you are giving to turn on/off lights

“Alexa.  Turn on living room.”  Or “Alexa.  Turn off living room.”
These commands worked fine up till a couple of months ago...

As I’ve said I can still tell it to set living room to percentage and that works fine. It’s only the on or off that gets the “your provider can’t do that” reply.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Tell Smart Plug to turn on at 4:00?
« Last post by Scott216 on March 15, 2019, 12:48:43 pm »
Is there a way I can tell my Amazon Smart Plug to turn off at a certain time by just using my voice?  I know you can set routines, but I'd like to do it with my voice on a per case basis.  For example, I have my coffee maker connected to a smart plug.  So I'd like to say the night before, "Alexa turn coffee maker on at 7 AM tomorrow".

Also, can I say something like "Alexa, turn Coffee Maker off in 15 minutes"?

Thanks
Scott

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: NEO PIR Sensor not Detected Echo Dot
« Last post by lwright on March 14, 2019, 05:58:33 pm »
The steps should be:
Turn on sensor, plug it in, whatever is needed to 'activate' it
Install the app on your phone
add sensor to app
test app
Install the appropriate alexa skill
run discover devices in alexa
test alexa

Did you do the discover devices step?

You also need to be on a 2.4GHz wifi network for some reason, according to reviews of the app 5GHz is not supported ATM :o

Thanks Dragon123.    Yes I've done all those steps.   When I use discover devices in Alexa it doesn't find anything.    Good point about the 5ghz.    I've just  turned off 5ghz on my router & reconnected the sensor to the network - still not showing in Alexa though.

I am new at this forum. What are you talking about?

Update:  my older Echo 2 exhibited the same Bluetooth audio problem.  I put an old original Echo in its place and no glitches, ever.
