Amazon Echo is not just a device but a lifestyle that will get you hooked once you get used to it. That is why you can not live without it if you have been using it for some time. So, you might want to learn about all the possibilities that will enable you to have Alexa wherever you go.

Amazon Echo Two Houses

There are tons of cool features about Echo and if you are planning on installing the Echo device in two houses, here are a few things that you must know to make the most out of your experience.

Connectivity

The connectivity is not a problem with the Echo devices. Their smart features enable them to connect with any device that is compatible with Alexa so if you have a smart home system in the other house that is running all the appliances, devices, and a smart home hub that is Alexa compatible, there should not be any problems for you. We all know that the Echo device has a pretty good rating in terms of connectivity so you can simply rely on the connectivity and start enjoying the best smart home experience.

Installation

The installation process for your echo devices is one of the simplest out there and that makes it the right choice for you if you are planning to install it in two houses. All you are going to need is to get an echo device and install it using the same easy process. You will need to connect it to the power source, then you will be able to configure it with your smartphone or any other device with the Alexa app on it. Once done, you can connect it with all the smart appliances and other smart devices that you have in your home and that would do the job for you.

How to use it, and what you can do?

Now, this is one of the most important parts and you are simply going to love the features and possibilities of this one. With your two Echo devices installed in two different houses, you will be able to control them from either of the devices.

If you are a bit confused about the concept, let’s say that you have two devices installed in two different houses. Each of these devices will be connected to all the appliances in that particular house. But you will also be able to control the appliances on the first house and manage the echo device if you are in your second house.

To make this work, you just need to take care of a few things. To start with, you will need to pair your mobile device with both of the echo devices. Now, since you are using the same amazon account on both devices, they will essentially be working in unison. The most interesting part is that you will be able to use your voice command feature to control the appliances in the second house as well, even if you are in the first house and vice versa.

  1. In short, Alexa doesn’t have any clue about your homes, despite its understanding of different Echo devices, different IP addresses, different locales, etc. When I ask Alexa for “the weather”, I get beach weather at the beach house and town weather when in town.

    But Alexa sees all your devices as one big house. It took me awhile to figure this out. After all, I have kitchens in both houses, but when I ask for “Kitchen Lights,” the lights in the kitchen go on, 100mi away.

    Google Home solves this by understanding houses and rooms. When I add a device, I place it in a house (assuming I’ve created more than one house) and then in a room. So Google understands that when I ask for kitchen lights at the beach house, I get those lights.

    It seems like a pretty obvious thing. Yeah, you can make up a system for naming things in one house versus the other, but that’s clumsy. This has me moving more toward using Google and its devices, even though I like some things about the Echo better. A solution that actually works right is worth a few bumps.
