    Just realised that when I used the Bluetooth speaker function of the Echo Dot yesterday (to send some music from my phone to the stereo) that it was the first time in at least two weeks that anyone had spoken to the Echo, despite it sitting in plain view in the living room. I guess the novelty has worn off for me! Apart from Bluetooth Speaker and Spotify device I'm struggling to find any real use for the device in my life, and I'm one of the biggest tech nerds you can imagine.

    Google is so much better at voice recognition than Amazon. Let's see how Google Home fairs when it comes here in June.

    couple of quick questions.

    1) is there a list of all the commands that alexa can do?
    2) How can you stop an override, and default back to schedule. Eg I set lounge to 25, but after 2 hours I want to cancel this. What do I have to say?

    thanks

    1) Check out the FAQ here - smart home integration https://getconnected.honeywell.com/e...mostat_support
    2) The override will only go to the next schedule change point. You can either - let it run its course, ask alexa to set temp back to what you want it to be, or enable a 'mode', then turn 'mode' off, which will reset everything back to schedule.

    Just had another Alexa drop. Re-did Skill and all worked again - immediately (ie: 5 secs).
    Mobile app and everything else was working fine.

    Another skill-drop here.

    A bit frustrating that this still isn't sorted. None of my other Alexa integrations keep falling off the air like this.

    Alexa was really PMS'ing the last few days. Not recognizing commands on the first try but not saying anything either (just ignoring me) and then doing it just fine second time round. No background noise to explain it, just her being a bit 'off'. She also lost Evohome for a while and needed it reset. Maybe she's upset with me for only asking her for home automation related stuff but never anything else? Do Alexa and Siri and Cortana have feelings? Years ago on the TRS80 I had a Basic program with a female psychologist called Eliza you could ask (typed) simple questions. She had feelings...
