It’s possible you mistakenly set up an Alexa routine to do something at a certain time or based on a location. Check your routines and see if anything looks fishy. Here’s how:
- Open the Alexa app
- Tap hamburger icon top left corner
- Tap Settings
- Tap routines
- See if anything looks out of the ordinary
If you want to avoid Alexa waking you up in the middle of the night with an errant notification, set Do Not Disturb before you go to sleep. While this won’t fix the underlying problem, at least it’ll help with the symptoms and stop your Echo from randomly awakening you at 4am. Just say “Alexa, set do not disturb” before you go to bed.
Lastly, always unplug your Echo and then plug it back in. This works miracles!
