When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

Is this possible: Alexa announcements?
« on: July 17, 2017, 06:32:04 pm »
Wondering if Alexa can make announcements?
Eg. If a family member is on the way home, Can Alexa announce that?
Looked at building an apple with IFTTT. But no luck. Most of the skills seem to require a command. So are such announcements possible?
How would I go about?

Thanks

not yet but I have read that it is in the works.

they way i currently do it is with smartthings. so presence sensor arrives home, it then announces it using one of my connected speakers.

would be much better to have alexa announce it
