Amazon Alexa has an area “Smart home“In which there are groups, devices and scenes. At the bottom under each of these points there is the option “Discard all”. Anyone who thinks that only the respective content of the points groups, devices and scenes will be discarded is misleading. Everything is discarded, all scenes, all renaming of devices and the groups you have created. Once you have done this, you can perhaps remove components that you no longer need – or convert existing ones.

Interesting though: Alexa-connected speakers like Sonos-Loudspeakers stay with it after deletion. Skills also remain active. And if you let them search for new hardware because you want to set everything up again, then stay that way Components such as sockets and lamps connected to the Echo Plus will be found and listed again immediately. However, you should Socket types in the Alexa app set to “lamp” you have to do this again with a new setup, because after pressing the kill switch, something is back to standard.

Nice employment the whole.
