Don in LaBelle, Florida listens online and asked: “A question about Amazon Echo. Why does it turn on the light 10-15 times a day and I don’t have it scheduled for any particular time?”
Don, if you mean a light bulb, then you may want to remove it from your network, reset it, and add it fresh again.
Having said that, we suspect that youre talking about the light ring on the Echo device itself.
If thats the case, its turning on because it thinks that someone is using its trigger word. Echo speakers are constantly listening for the word Alexa, if they hear anything that sounds like it might be Alexa theyll turn on and await further commands.
Something in your house seems to be making a sound that your speakers interpret as being relatively close to Alexa and its triggering it to be ready to respond.
