My Beam is great. I can turn my TV on and off with it by saying, “Alexa, family room on/off”
My issue is that I’ve just installed two Philips Hue bulbs in wall fixings. My other Philips Hue bulbs in the house work with my other Alexa devices. I just say, “Alexa, Sitting Room On/Off” and they turn on and off.
When I ask the Beam to do this it responds, “Did you mean Family Room?” When I say, “No,” it responds, “Sorry, I didn’t find a device called Sitting Room.”
Any ideas before I murder Alexa?

Hints: I’m typing this on my cell so excuse typos
Make sure your lights have a distinct name. Keep light names simple. Don’t name a light with the word Room involved. For example if Room name for a speaker is Living Room don’t name the smart light Living Room 2. Just call the smart light Lamp or Table One. Heck I have a smart light called Ginger.
The only time lights should have Room in the name is when they are part of a group. For example.
The Playbar in my bedroom is called Master Bedroom.
l have Sonos One as surrounds in this room. There are two smart lamps. Lamp 1 and Lamp 2. The lamps are in a group called Bedroom. My commands can be for an individual Lamp or both by saying turn on/off bedroom.
l can turn every smart light in my home on/off regardless of location by saying Alexa, turn on/off lights.
I hope this helps. It’s killing me typing on my phone LOL
