An annoying Echo Dot feature
« on: January 27, 2018, 06:53:58 PM »
On our house we have one Echo, one Tap, and Two Dots. One of the Dots is in our bedroom. It has the annoying habit of lighting up at 6:30am with the notification of the days deliveries. By the time I shut her down by asking for notifications, the dogs are awake and want to go outside. I just want to go back to sleep. In the app I can see how to turn off notifications entirely, but I only want to turn it off on one device. Is there a way?

I think this should work.  Go into Alexa app > Settings > Device you're concerned about > turn on Do Not Disturb.  I'd guess that would keep the one device quiet.

You can just "tell" Alexa to "do not disturb".  She gets a little snippy about it.  : )

I had the same problem and set my bedroom Dot to Do Not Disturb awhile back. It hasn't bothered me since.  :)
