Calling from an Echo to another Echo
How do I initiate a call from an Echo dot (living room) to another Encho dot (basement)?
What are the invocation words?
Hands-free voice-activated device by Amazon powered by Alexa Voice Service. Model S04WQR.
Here's the trick! Using Alexa as an Intercom. While it's not a true intercom it will likely meet your needs.
What I would like to see is a way for different Echo's to announce who you are looking for (paging) so the person you want would pick up. This would be important in a larger household (3+) otherwise everyone would try to pick up the call (intercom) across all of the Echo's (when you have more than two devices).
So the command would be something like: 'Alexa page Frank' and then the other Echo's would call out 'Frank please pick up' within your Echo hardware domain. Amazon are you listening??
Is there a way to turn off my kids calling contacts but still be able to call the echo devices within my home please?
I've had to turn off their devices from communicating as they were calling anyone & everyone all the time & really bugging everyone in my contacts but it won't allow me to leave household drop-in on so we can communicate within our home.
They also can't message anyone at all. The settings should allow you to choose which device can do what & which contact, unfortunately, it's all or nothing unless you know something I don't please?
If anyone has an answer or solution, I'd be grateful.
