Hey everyone,

When I scroll through different communities, I notice how popular the Home Automation conversation is. Because of that, I would love to start a thread where users can share their tips and tricks, resources (such as other communities, books, forums, events, etc.), start discussions and engage with one another all about Home Automation. Let’s use this space to help one another, share insights, and have fun discussing ways Home Automation is beneficial to you and your home along with the different things you’ve learned along the way.

I have multiple minis in the house. Sometime I ask for news and it plays in another room, ask for timer and it goes off in a totally different part of house, set alarm and it tells me I don't have an alarm set but goes off in the office. How can I reduce this? 

Yes my house is small and the other mics sometime pick up in another room but sometimes I whisper, no way it's heard on another mini, with the same results...

There's a setting on each device that lets you not add a device to a room but set .."if you add a device to a room then  all devices functions will by default happen in the room your using"    alarms reminders videos etc.. it can override your default speaker and default screen if you want  .... but  it just means while in the specified room; to control devices in another room you have to be specific..to enable go to each device.. then their settings
