Multi room individual alexa

With a few posts relating to discovery issues, and suffering from insomnia tonight, I just had a little thought.

If I have two alexas in two rooms with an indigo bridge, I have to use "sitting room tv" and "kitchen tv" to differentiate between the two devices.

But what if I set each Alexa to a different Amazon account. Split the devices over two bridges, discover devices on Alexa 1 with bridge 1 in discovery and bridge 2 with discovery off. Then the opposite Bridges for Alexa 2.

Will I have two room specific Alexa and just be able to use "tv"?

Just a thought, as too late to test........

That sounds reasonable, unless of course the two rooms are close enough for both devices to pick up on your voice at times. Outside of that, getting the discovery process turned on / off for a couple of bridges would just take a little planning and patience.
