Amazon Echo Discussion / Alexa echo alarm sound changes
« Last post by Wildthing33 on February 15, 2021, 12:40:41 am »
I have 5 separate echo devices and none will allow me to select a different timer or alarm sound. I have checked for current updates on all devices including the Alexa app and performed individual setup resets with no luck. All they will play is the “simple alarm” sound. My newest devices are the echo show and echo dot with digital clock. Any ideas?

A little expensive? Philips Hue is outrageously expensive!

White/Ambience aren;t as bad as the color ones... but they are a little expensive. I have all Hue lighting and everything works seamlessly... so I couldn;t say whether it would work the same through 3rd party stuff. Good luck with your solution...
Thanks All,

I do seem to keep being sent back to Philips Hue.

Do you have them working with 3rd party lights? Philips Hue are lights are eye watering expensive and the "bright" white are dull compared to the others I have.

I do this also - but with a routine in the Alexa app.  The routine turns the light on when sensing motion, 'waits' for 5 minutes and then turns off the light.

Amazon Echo Discussion / Tower responds to voice, won’t stream music
« Last post by Tschmidt on February 13, 2021, 12:57:20 pm »
I’m super frustrated. My tower is connected to my sound bar. When it responds to voice it comes thru the sound bar. When I ask for music it streams through the echo studio in a different room but will not stream music thru the sound bar.
I checked the Alexa app and the only device the tower is linked to is the sound bar so why the heck is it playing on the echo studio speaker?

I have the same and was just talking to my wife about adding one in our Laundry room as well. We only have one in our bedroom closet because of the amount of traffic it gets and the automation is great. Not only can we turn on the light in our closet, but we can turn it on at full bright at one range of time and one at "nightlight" level during another range, with dimming after 30 seconds of no motion, and a full "OFF" after 30 more seconds of no motion detected.

Mine is a Philips Hue sensor as well, and I also use the Hue app to set up the way it works as it is a more robust set of controls.
