abc might be too generic since a lot of channels share the name.

Alexa can learn your behavior. From what you described, it has learned that you usually lock the door at night.

This feature is called Alexa Hunches. You can turn it on or off in the Alexa app.

Sorry, I did not mention some stuff :-[
I've setup the fios skill for Alexa.

She will correctly tune my fios box to a given channel number, but she cannot tune to a network name.

Just curious if anyone's experienced this before. A couple nights ago around 10 pm I was watching TV, and out of the blue she said,
"The front door is unlocked. Would you like me to lock it.?"
I checked and sure enough it was unlocked, which is rare. I'm pretty good at keeping it locked. I said "yes", and she locked it.  I had installed Schlage  z-wave door locks on the front and back doors. When I put them in a couple years ago, I set them up through Smartthings, and Alexa. I can tell her to lock them, but for security reasons she won't unlock them. I can do that through Smartthings if I want to however.  I don't have any routines set up for the locks.
This was the first time I've had this happen before.

you didn't delete your alexa history recently?   anyway, I found over the years alexa can be picky at times with station names - what worked one day may not work the next.  try saying "capital fm london"

Echo Technical Support / Echo Show 5 Sunrise Alarm Feature Stubborn
« Last post by JeniJam on February 12, 2020, 04:21:19 pm »
Bought this as a smart bedside clock so sunrise alarm feature was a big selling point.  I've followed the feature directions which seem very basic - it worked for a few days, then I unplugged and re-selected feature based on forum research advice, it worked one more day, then nothing. With all other skills and features working properly, this sunrise alarm issue feels like a bug - my research shows many are experiencing the same problem.

Is there a future fix in the making?

Since you already have two Echo Studios, just put them in a group along with the Echo Sub and you can play music that will come out of all three speakers.
As for using 2.1 speakers, you can only do that via a wired connection (using the AUX outlet from the Echo) to the 2.1 speakers. If you want to go wireless, it's either several Echo devices in a group or one and only one Bluetooth speaker.

An alternative I just thought of just now is to use a Bluetooth receiver, which then connects to the 2.1 speakers via a wired connection.

who knows, you did not give any specifics like the command you are using or what stations you are trying to listen to and more.  the more detail you give, the more likely you could get help here.
