Echo Technical Support / Re: Calendar appearing on another Echo Show
« Last post by jwlv on April 11, 2019, 10:44:49 pm »
Your daughter's account is linked up to your calendar. The physical Echo device does not matter. You should ask your daughter to remove/unlink your calendar (Google account) from her Amazon account.

I installed my first Echo. I went into the Alexa app on my phone and connected the Email and Calendar to my Office 365 account.  If I ask Alexa what is on my Calendar, the answer is always "Nothing".  I had Alexa add something to my calendar, gave date, time and topic.  Alexa said OK.  Nothing ever appears in my Outlook Calendar.

Any ideas?

Echo Technical Support / Calendar appearing on another Echo Show

First my daughter had an Echo Show and registered it with her Amazon Prime account.  Then I got one and registered it with her account.  Later I got my own account and re-set my Echo Show to be on my own account.  I have re-set it several times.  Nevertheless, my daughter (in another state) still sees my calendar on her Echo Show!  On my Alexa App it shows just my gmail account as being connected.  How can I disconnect my calendar from her Echo Show?

If Alexa can't do it 'out of the box', have you looked into something like IFTTT?
Amazon Echo Discussion / Amazon echo plus not making normal alarm noise
« Last post by DingDong46 on April 10, 2019, 09:55:56 pm »
My amazon echo plus just recently started making this really low beeping noise when an alarm or notification goes off. It honestly scares me so much and I hate hearing the noise when I first wake up in the morning. I dont know how to fix this at all. I've tried changing the alarm sound on my alexa app but it still makes the low beeping noise. Someone please help :(

Hi, I have this lock as well and in my case, it's connected to the Echo Plus 2nd generation. I'm surprised you can unlock your door with Alexa. I thought (as mentioned in the manual) that for security reason you can just lock and not unlock.

Regarding your question, I also only have temperature and not lock status in a routine but I know it's possible to get its status because when saying "Alexa, is the front door locked?" it will return the status of the lock.

ups and usps both never ring the doorbell or knock in my area.   I wish there was a local store where I can have packages dropped off at.  my neighborhood has gone downhill over the years.  over the past year, I have had the police stop by and ask me about stuff and neighbors several times.   Never had that happened  before.   even the other half of the duplex I live in was broken in a couple of weeks ago.   Though nobody lived there but it came furnished.  after the break in it was no longer fully furnished.  they even took the washer and dryer.    anywa, so far none of my packages have been stolen, yet.

Have you tried using the web app ? I usually find that's much less trouble than using the phone app.

If you are using your phone, make sure your Do and your phone are connecting to the same network. It won't work if your Dot is on 5 GHz and your phone on 2.4 GHz, or vice versa.
Echo Technical Support / Alexa Routine for Kwikset 914 Smart Lock
« Last post by Coderunner on April 09, 2019, 08:27:06 pm »
New to Alexa but been accomplishing a lot already.

I have a Kwikset 914 smart-lock on my front door. It is Zigbee and Alexa does fine locking and unlocking. I want a routine that has Alexa notify me when the door is unlocked or locked.  When I go to create a routine I can find the lock in the device but when going to the "When this happens" all I get is an option for temperature above or below like it was a thermostat.  Not sure if I am missing something here.

As an aside I also have a WINK hub. Should I be putting the Kwikset lock on Wink and then linking to Alexa?

Any assistance for a newbee is greatly appreciated

A lot of Amazon Flex delivery drivers just drop off a package without ringing the doorbell or knocking. You can call Amazon and complain although I don't know if it'll do any good. Several times they left packages on top of a patio table I have in the front yard where everyone driving by can see. If the delivery driver walked down a few more feet, they could have left it by the front door and no one would be able to see it since there's a 90 degree turn at the front door. Because they never came to the door, nobody rang the bell or knocked. The very last time an Amazon delivery driver left packages on the patio table, I saw a picture of the packages through my Amazon account. When I went outside to get it, the packages were gone. My doorbell camera didn't capture anything because that area is not in the camera's field of view. That's when I called Amazon to complain. They credited my order back to me. I guess it takes Amazon to lose money before they take action. Since that day, no Amazon delivery driver has ever left anything on that patio table in the front yard. I don't know what some of these delivery drivers were thinking to leave packages on top of a table in plain view that can be seen from 200 ft away. It's like putting a sign up saying, "Come steal me!"
