Greetings, fellow Alexa users.
I am interested in knowing something about this Alexa Remote from Amazon.
I will be getting one soon, but since I don’t have one yet, I’m asking you for a hand with something.
If you have one of these Remotes (i.e. NOT the one for FireTV, but the one specifically sold for use with Echo), please help me out by doing a quick, simple experiment…
Disable the microphones on your Echo device via the built-in mic-disable button on the Echo device.
Use the paired Alexa Remote to attempt to send a command to your Echo device as you normally would, but this time, while the Echo device has its own microphones disabled as per step one above.
Report back here to tell me if it worked or not.
I’m trying to figure out if there is any way of commanding Alexa through an Echo device which is currently in ‘microphones-disabled’ mode through any other medium or mechanism.
For more details on that, please see the following thread…
