Echo Technical Support / Amended routine not propagating
« Last post by billbudd on October 07, 2019, 02:43:33 pm »
Hi,  I had a routine which was working as I required.  I made some changes (added an additional action and removed one action).  The changes are not being propagated to the Echo, i.e. the routine is triggered and runs but using the actions before I changed them.

I have re-booted (power cycled) the echo, no improvement.

Any suggestions welcome.

Bill

Echo Technical Support / Re: Guard issue on Echo Dot
« Last post by jwlv on October 04, 2019, 05:44:13 pm »
Did you include at least one of your Echo devices in the Guard Settings? You must have one or more Echo devices added to Guard so that those devices can listen for smoke/CO2 alarms. I have 10 Echo devices in my home and I set 8 of them to be listening. See screenshot. I also have the Ring Alarm system. I'm not sure if that's required for this to work.




Guard will not allow me to enable the glass breakage or the smoke/CO2 alarm sound function. They are grayed out on the settings page. I removed and reloaded the app and checked the dot to be sure itís up to date and listed as capable of this function. Amazon help was a joke....
Any ideas?

Amazon Echo Discussion / Re: Echo Auto - First Impressions

I've been running mine daily for about a week too... I always play music from my phone (not data on the Alexa, but downloaded music Ive had for a while mostly). No problem exists in that unless you ask Alexa "how is my commute?" before the audio tracks start up, then it sits with no sound until you start up Apple Music manually... Cool part is, Alexa controls the tracks by voice no problem. Just call out "Alexa, Next song." or another navigation command and she's on it. Perfect. (well... perfect for me). No huge issue with data usage as long as I use my own music, however Alexa causes several things to check with other services for location and such to have info available that relates to you and your current location... not a bunch of data used up with that.

The audio is just what it is... through my radio, it sounds fine. Nothing audiophile happening inside any actual cars any way, no matter how much you pay for the car... there will be noises you cannot completely squash... (OK maybe a little hyperbolic, but there would be very few cars in the world if ANY that could claim audiophile quite ambience... but still)

All in all I'm very satisfied with the whole thing. It's funny though... if you already have SIRI and a compatible radio... it's pretty much the same... just make the command it it happens...

It's been a week or so.  The Echo Auto has been plugged in twice.  Otherwise, spends a lot of time in the glove compartment.

I don't have a daily commute, so a trip to the corner store and back isn't worth pulling it out.  And leaving it setup is a security risk. Sweeps by door checkers are a weekly occurrence in my part of town. And in other cases, crooks just bash a window in if they think something's in there.

I tried to place a call, but you definitely have to enable Alexa to access your contacts or something for that to work. Haven't received a call yet (again, not hooked up enough to happen).

If you're wearing a bluetooth headset, that or the Echo will vie for dominance for where the phone audio goes. It's a little weird.

Hi all, same here. My Spot yesterday and my Show just now have automatically prompted  for the set up routine which I have done and they are both now fine.

I knew once the weekend was over they would fix THEIR problem. At first, it still wasnt fixed for me.  So I pulled the power cord, counted to 10, and when it booted up all is well.
 So if anyone still has the problem, unplug, count to 10, and plug her back in.

I'm suppose you're right  ;)
I'm eager they add this feature that has been available for a while on Google Home.
I would like to have both English and French but I hope the 2 languages are not imposed with the language of your Amazon account because the article says English + Spanish for US accounts and English + French for Canadian accounts which doesn't sound too flexible ???

My Show 5 seems to be working correctly again as of 2:10pm central time today. After I ask Alexa to turn on a light it returns to the home screen with a small clock in the upper left hand corner, cycles one "Ask Alexa" things to try, then goes to the large clock and stays there.
