Elizabeth Frank30 Jan 2022

Do you have a home that always feels cluttered and outdated? Do you feel like your plugs and switches are always out of place, cluttering up your space? If so, then you may want to consider renaming an Amazon Smart Plug. Renaming an Amazon Smart Plug can make your life a lot easier and save you a lot of money in the long run. Here are some tips on how to rename an Amazon Smart Plug.

What is an Amazon Smart Plug?

An Amazon Smart Plug is a small device that plugs into your wall outlet and can be controlled with the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. They work by plugging into an existing outlet, and then you plug other devices into the Smart Plug to connect them to the internet. The Smart Plug can then be controlled through Alexa skills or through a smartphone app.

How to Rename an Amazon Smart Plug?

To rename your Amazon smart plug, follow these steps: Step 1: Go into the "Your Account" menu from the main menu of your Alexa app by pressing "Account" on the top left side of the screen. Then select "Manage Devices." If you are not already in the "Your Account" menu, then press the hamburger button (three horizontal lines) in the top left corner of the screen to get back to this menu. Step 2: Select the device you would like to rename from the list of available devices. For example, if you have an Amazon Echo, then select "Amazon Echo." If you do not see the device you want to rename in this list, then press the hamburger button (three horizontal lines) in the top left corner of your screen again and select "Manage Devices" from this menu. Step 3: Navigate to your smart plug settings by selecting your device from the list of available devices. Typically, these will be located at the bottom of your screen or somewhere else that can be found easily by pressing on a specific item in this menu. For example, if you have an Amazon smart plug named "Smart Plug 1" and would like to change it to "Smart Plug 2," then go into "Smart Plug Settings" under "Device Name > Smart Plug 2." Step 4: Click on the "Device Name" field and either type a new name for the smart plug or hit "Search" to find a name that you want to use. If you are not sure what to call your smart plug, then go into your Amazon account, click on "Devices," and then select the device that you bought from Amazon. Step 5: Click the "Update Device Name" button in this menu to change the device name of your smart plug. This can take a while if there are many devices with similar names, and it is possible that some of them will be updated before others. Once it is complete, then press "Save Device Name" in this menu so that all future updates will use this new device name for this smart plug. Step 6: At this point, you are ready to use the smart plug. Go back into "Device Name" and click on the "Smart Plug 1" name that you just changed. You can now see a list of all the devices that are connected to your Amazon account. The first one is automatically called "Smart Plug 1," and all others are named after their corresponding smart plugs, so if you have a smart plug called "Smart Plug 2," then it will be listed as "Smart Plug 2." Click on one of these devices and it will show up in the list under that device's name.

If you are like a lot of people and have a ton of devices that all have the same name, then renaming your Amazon smart plug is a great idea.

For example, if you have an Amazon Echo, then it would be nice to rename your Amazon smart plug so that it is easier for you to remember which one goes with which device. If you plan on giving the Smart Plug to a family member, then it would be helpful to rename it so that they can easily remember which one goes with which device.
