Alexa devices unresponsive

Print Friendly and PDF

This morning I found two Wemo devices to be unresponsive. What I did:

  1. Remove them from the group they were in
  2. Remove them as devices
  3. Go into the Wemo app -- it told me there was a firmware update
  4. Ran the firmware upate
  5. That fixed the problem. Just added them back

After being on hold for fifteen minutes and simultaneously googling, I found an explanation that these phone numbers are EXAMPLE or SAMPLE phone numbers because I must have put in the wrong userid.

So I hung up. It was a terrifying experience. Here's the page.
