Virtualization, Cloud, Infrastructure and all that stuff in-between

My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

Why has my Amazon Alexa device stopped announcing when people press my Ring doorbell?

If you have a Ring doorbell and have it ‘paired’ with Alexa so that when someone presses the doorbell it announces ‘there is someone at the front door” (or whatever) and it has stopped doing-so it may be that someone* has set your Echo device to ‘do not disturb’.

In the Alexa app you can change it by tapping the moon icon to turn it off

*in my case I did it to stop kids using ‘drop-in’ to the Echo device that runs music in my office to demand snacks or complain about the WiFi, but then forgot about it.
