Ok, so I have had my Echo, and my two Play 1s, my Sub and my Play 5 for a year or so now. Have the Sonos skill enabled in my Alexa app and it all works beautifully. I now buy the Beam, add it to the mix, and suddenly I seem to have an Alexa in my Beam and one in my Echo. I just asked her to set a timer, (my beam made a noise) which she said she did. A few minutes in i ask how long on timer, and my Echo answers and says I have no timers. I ask again and again and I have no timers. A couple of minutes later off goes my timer. i tell Alexa to cancel as normal and all she does is stop playing the song which is coming out of my Echo (Sometimes I just want to hear my Echo playing), and when I ask again for her to cancel, suddenly it is the Beam that makes a noise and the alarm stops.
Do I have to disable the Sonos skill in my Alexa app now that I have added an Alexa enable piece of Sonos kit (ie the Beam) please?

You could just switch off the microphone in the Beam.
