The natural extension of Alexa’s timer feature, the Echo Wall Clock, produced by Amazon, is a distinct Alexa-enabled device slaying the market these days. In this article, you will learn how to set up an Echo Wall Clock and troubleshoot some of the common problem’s users face.
Set a Timer
The Echo Wall Clock lets you visually monitor the countdown to your alarms and reminders set on multiple Alexa devices. For example, you have to fix an alarm for 30 minutes; this smart clock will represent the countdown with 30 light marks placed around this fantastic clock’s face.
The Echo Wall Clock can be truly beneficial for you if you use Alexa within a loud environment. So, if you have ever missed your alarm because of the loud TV or your kid’s music, then this is the right gizmo for you. Also, it is highly useful if you or any family member have hearing impairments.
Pair the Echo Wall Clock
You can only pair the Amazon Echo Wall Clock with a single device, unlike other Alexa-compatible devices that can be paired with multiple devices at a single point. The Echo wall clock can be connected to all the Echo, Echo Show, Echo Plus, Echo Dot, Echo Spot, or Echo Input devices. Ideally, you should put your Echo Wall Clock in the room where the paired Echo device is kept. So that you will be able to see the timer on your wall clock, relayed by the paired Echo device. Follow the steps below for pairing your Echo Wall Clock:
Step 1. Announce, “Set up my Echo Wall Clock” on the paired Echo device.
Step 2. Press and hold the blue-colored pairing button behind the clock to put it into pairing mode. You will notice the LED turns orange after about ten seconds.
Step 3. Now, your smart clock will enter the pairing mode with a pulsing blue LED. Also, the hands of the clock may swivel a few times. The whole pairing process will get successful in a few minutes.
Step 4. Once paired with your preferred Echo device, the LED will turn off. Now, you can fix a timer using the usual Alexa command, that is, “Hey Alexa, fix a timer for five minutes.” With this, your Echo Wall Clock should lighten up.
Step 5. You can set numerous timers with different names given to them, and you will see your smart Wall Clock displaying the different timers as distinct points. You can also clear all the timers using the obvious command, “Hey Alexa, remove all the timers.”
Unable to connect?
In case you are unable to communicate with your smart Wall Clock, you may try the fixes mentioned below:
Set the Bluetooth Again
Step 1. Download and install the Amazon Alexa app on your phone or other compatible devices.
Step 2. Open the app and tap on the “Devices” tab, followed by “Echo & Alexa.”
Step 3. Find and tap on the name of the Echo device that is paired to your Echo Wall Clock.
Step 4. From the list of options that appears, tap on the option named “Bluetooth Devices.”
Step 5. Find and tap on the name of your wall clock.
Step 6. Now, tap “Forget Device.”
Afterward, set it up again and check if the issue has been resolved or not.
Disable Multi-Room Music
In case your Echo Wall Clock is experiencing troubles while connecting to an Alexa-enabled speaker, it could be because your speaker is paired in a Multi-Room Music group. To resolve this, you will have to eliminate the speaker from the Music group, and then check your smart Wall Clock by pairing it to another Alexa-compatible device.
So, unpair your current device, and then pair your Echo Wall Clock with a different Alexa-compatible device using the directions provided above.
