The so-called ghost devices can be a pain. When you try to tell Alexa to turn on a device by name it, doesn't recognize. Sorry, I didn't find a group or device name hall light.

Well, not that drastic, but you will have to delete your tie, your smart home and start over, which means you'll lose access to any rooms or routines already established, but otherwise the process is easy.
