Amazon Echo Discussion / Location routines
« Last post by Jamd19 on January 18, 2019, 09:37:13 am »
I'm not sure how this location routine works. I know it send notifications to my phone but if I want Alexa to say something to me when I get home, will I be able to hear it when I walk into the house, or will she say something when I pull into the driveway? If the latter, is there a way to have her say something when I walk into the house or get closer to that dot?

So basically, you can set up a routine initiated by action from the Smart lock? Is that correct?



Yep.  If the door unlocks you can make Alexa say:
Life is a journey
Time is a river
The door is ajar.

The Dresden Files fans will get it.

2 for now.  One on top of the fridge that is used for Amazon delivery notifications and Life360.  One that lives in the "Samoogle" closet and a 3rd Gen on the way.  Price too good to pass up. 7 or 8 GH Minis, 2 original GHs, 3 Google Home Hubs, 2 Chromecasts

Hi malliekm,  I was reading this feed and I noticed you used your dot for Life360? I'm curious how that works. Would I be able to just ask Alexa where my son is?   

I also use Life360.  Yes, you can just ask Alexa to "ask Life360 where xxx is?"  She will typically respond with an address and how long they have been at that address and how long it would take you to get to them or them to get to you.

The Ring Video Doorbell is supported but only when it detects motion. At the moment you can't set a routine for when someone actually presses the doorbell which I find a bit odd.
Good job Alexa now supports announcements for the doorbells.

Like if the lock is unlocked by a code or locked by a code or other means, it would trigger a light in a back bedroom or some other such outcome? That'd be pretty cool to have a message sent you if the door was unlocked baby someone, especially if you didn't;t give out a code to anyone lately...
