    Have similar challenge. If I have Alexa in 4 bathrooms and I want here to turn on the bathroom fan, would be nice to just say "Alexa, turn on the fan" and she turns on the fan in that bathroom. Trying to educate the entire family on the name of every room is impossible, as well as educating guests.

    Alexa can already be named for the room it is in, would be nice just to tie that automatically to the request. If the Alexa is named "bathroom 1" then when that Alexa hears "Alexa, turn on the fan", it substitutes that for "Alexa, turn on the fan in bathroom 1". If I am not in that room, I could also say "Alexa, turn on the fan in bathroom 1" and get the same result.

    If this could be updated, it would make Alexa and smart homes much more usable for everyone, family and guests, not just the programmer like me.
