Hello--I bought one for me and one for my nursing home mom. can i set up both independently with the same app on my ipad, or should I set up mine by computer at home and mom's by ipad? thanks.
For the initial setup of either Echo, you would need to be in the same location and be connected to the same WiFi network on a compatible device with your Alexa app installed (iPad, computer, or mobile device). Registering both devices to your own account is recommended, and will allow you and your mom to instantly connect using Drop In. You will also be able to perform maintenance on your mom's Echo, such as editing contacts or enabling/disabling skills, from your own Alexa app on any of your devices.
I hope that helps! Let us know if you have more questions, and welcome to the forum
Many thanks for your reply--just to clarify--I will then be setting up both devices from the app on my ipad. Can I set up mine first one day in my home , then travel to my mom and set her's up another day? Or are you saying--I set them BOTH up at same time at my Mom's using nursing home WIFI? Can you tell I am a beginner???
Great questions! Yes, you can set them up on different days. Set them up one at a time, on the WiFi where that Echo will be used. So set up yours on your home network, then set up Mom's on the nursing home Wifi. And we all have to start somewhere! We're always here to help
