Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

         I am wondering if it is possible to use 2 or more Amazon Alexa (2nd generation) units as intercom systems.  

         Thank you

Yes, ideally you'll need to change the names of the devices to match their locations and then enable the Drop In feature

This can mean devices can be in listen mode without it being immediately apparent.

Thank you for answering my question.  Due to privacy issues as it relates to devices potentially being in unknowing listening mode, I decided to abandon this home project.

Thanks again for the heads up.
