After reporting on the 5n1, Alexa asks: "Would you like to hear another?"  I must then say: "Alexa, yes."  Alexa reports then asks again if I would like to hear another.  At some point, I must say "Alexa, no."

@MountainGuy: THANK YOU! I knew I was missing something. To bad when you say "weather" it doesnt report your station first instead of the local weather, also it would be nice if you could call out the sensors by name and get the readings:-)

One of my stations is called "Upstairs".  I just asked Alexa: "Alexa, ask MyAcurite for the Upstairs weather."  She gave me the weather for the station called "5n1" which is the main station. She then asked if I would like to hear another.  I responded: "Alexa, yes".  She told me that "Front porch" which is another station was offline.  She ask if I wanted to hear another.  "Alexa, yes".  Finally she gave me the Upstairs weather.  

I believe they will sort it out.

Hello Alrui,
MountainGuy is correct. When asking Alexa for your My AcuRite readings it will start with the first sensor on the account and go down through the other sensors as they are listed on the account.  As stated above, when Alexa asks "Would you like to hear another?", reply with "Alexa, yes" and she will continue reading down the line of sensors. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you.
