Introduction: The Problem with Alexa’s Too Hot Alert
INFORMAL EXPLANATION: ALEXA ALARMS ARE A PAIN These alert sounds and lights are annoying. For example, a few months ago I was having dinner at my home in Japan. I had set Alexa to sleep until 1 AM. When the alarm went off at 11 PM, Alexa woke me at exactly the time that I was still having dinner! The problem is that Alexa wakes you regardless of your setting. I asked the Alexa support, and they said that this is the way Alexa works. They said I should manually turn off Alexa alarms, and to do so I must say something like “Alexa, stop!” or “Alexa cancel.” I don’t ascribe to this way of thinking. I want to do things my way. If a thing is annoying me, then I want to turn it off. It is not good for me to have to say commands to get Alexa to stop when I want it off.
The Ultimate Guide on How to Turn Off Alexa Albalms and Prevent the Annoying “Too Hot” Alert
IMPORTANT: This guide is for alexa alarms who are using “smart” switches. If you have a different kind of alexa, then you need to consult your guide. That said, this guide is intended to prevent the “too hot” alarm.
The “too hot” alert is not happening on every alexa switch.
Alexa wall switch alerts do not happen, as I understand it, all of the time. As part of the physical setup of your switch, you need to enable or disable alarms on your alexa switch.
You can also just turn off everything in the system to prevent these alerts completely. This is up to you. I was willing to have the alert be disabled completely in my house, but I was not willing to disable it for the Alexa wall switch which triggered an alarm for the heat pump that heats the house during winter.
