No third party exists who historically had an interest in eavesdropping... if there were, do you think the button that turns off the mic would do just that, or boost the sensitivity instead?

I'm a bit skeptical concerning 'temperature sensor' . Does it work like a thermometer ? Have you found some differences between a real thermometer and this sensor ? I don't want Alexa to activate my fan just because she is dreaming and believes to be on a Caraïbe beach.

I read a lot of people's reviews on Amazon saying this version of the Echo is deaf. Can you confirm that? Meaning that you borderline have to yell for it to listen.

@Tech With Brett My friend, kudos for your attempt. USpostsrs have millions of vids to choose from. Many producers love the sound of thier own voice and consequently load their vids with pointless explanations and video of them selves. To be successful, cut to the point. Your click bait already tells what your vid is about. We dont need minutes of self explanation again. Because we all have short attention spans, you will lose us if you dont get our attention quickly.

Tech with Brett Can Alexis adjust your nest thermostat and a nest lock??? Also I have a Bosch cd changer and a turntable that was near by. Would nest operate the Bosch cd changer to start the cd changer or change songs??? With the Alexis can you ask it to start playing the turntable and play the songs to listen to??? Also if I wanted to add other speakers in other rooms of the house can I use the bose speakers seeing how they can be played through blutooth or should I use the Alexis speaker system to listen to music in other rooms??? TIA very much with getting back to me with these answers I would appreciate it....

I tried pairing two of my echo dots and when I did it tells me to make sure I am all on the same network but I am. All of them note my network but beside them Network Error. Love your video but to fast for me. I have continually rewind back and note which menu you are on. I also have 5 Dots in which one is the flat pancake type and the other 4 as you describe in video. Also have in the kitchen the 8” screen Echo. Have to say I am now getting confused as I am trying to verify which DOT is marked correctly. Maybe I bit off more than I can chew at the moment.

Once my Alexa is setup do I need to keep the phone in the house connected to Wi-Fi to be able to use the Alexa? For example if I have bought an Alexa as a present for someone who only has internet can I set Alexa up at their house with my phone and then once I leave will they still be able to use Alexa as normal?

Brett, I bought a First Alert Wifi smoke detector. It communicates using Z-Wave. So I bought a Amazon Echo. Now I am hearing about OneLink nd I need that too. Is that correct. I assumed I could connect these smoke detectors right to the Echo and then onto my router. HELP! Mr. Frustrated!!

I just got this as a bday present today. I'm scared to set it up though. I don't want it listening to everything in my house and I don't want to constantly have to turn it off to avoid that. That would defeat the purpose. So leaning on returning it but you made it look really cool!

Maybe you can help me with an Echo Dot issue we're not able to figure out. My wife has an Dot 1 in her office. She has a new Dot 4 in the kitchen. If she is listening to music in the Office, and I ask the Kitchen Dot to play something else, what I ask for in the Kitchen plays in the Office, and nothing plays in the Kitchen. I know you can have it play the same thing on different devices at the same time, but how do you play different things on different devices?

Also, got DOT4 to finally work with BT, but no volume control via TV remote. Looking for simple, not finding it. Perhaps the longer road via Fire Stick will be the way

Hi Brett - When you pair via Bluetooth or Audio out to another speaker (i.e. Bose), can you play music from BOTH the Echo and this speaker as a group? I've noticed it only does one or the other on Bluetooth, but wondering if using Aux will allow for that.
