When you have greater than a few good house gadgets, you have most likely renamed them just a few occasions, moved some to a special room or in any other case modified their unique configuration. And for those who’re something like me, I wager you forgot to replace Alexa. Sadly, you may get a stark reminder while you try to manage these “ghost” gadgets with a voice command — strive telling Alexa to show a wise gentle on with a reputation it would not acknowledge and you may see what I imply.
“Sorry,” Alexa will say, “I did not discover a machine named [the new name you gave the device in the app].”
Do that typically sufficient and your good house will develop into nearly unusable. However worse, untangling such a large number might sound a tall order and earlier than lengthy you end up ignoring Alexa and controlling your good house with the myriad apps in your telephone.
Fortunately, there is a fast and simple resolution. It might sound dangerous at first — you may must delete your whole good house and begin over. However it is a easy course of that ought to solely take a few minutes and, when it is performed, you’ll be able to return to ordering Alexa round.
This is the way to do it.
You will have to make use of Alexa’s internet interface
First, put down your telephone and choose up your laptop computer — this must be performed on the net. Subsequent, head over to Alexa’s internet interface (sure, it is a factor), then comply with these steps:
1. On the menu on the left, click on Good Dwelling.
2. Within the major pane, click on Units.
3. Scroll all the best way to the underside and click on the field labeled Take away All.
4. Within the popup window, click on Take away to verify.
5. On the subsequent web page, click on the field labeled Uncover.
Now, rejoice. Alexa has pinged all the assorted providers you have linked (Philips Hue, Good Life, and so on.) and up to date all of them with the present names of all of your gadgets.
There may be, sadly, one draw back. Doing this can obliterate any teams and routines you have created. However chances are high, for those who’re having the sorts of issues that require a nuclear choice reminiscent of this, they each wanted to be revamped anyway.
I do know mine did.
