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.

Echo timers / alarms
« on: December 26, 2015, 01:24:20 pm »
I'd like to be able to name timers.  When I have two or three, I'd like to be able to say "Echo, set timer for two hours to pick up cleaning" and "Echo, set alarm for 4pm to check mail delivery" and have echo say "pick up cleaning *timer sound*" and "check mail delivery *alarm sound*".

Echo needs to be able to set recurring daily, weekend only or weekday only alarms.  it needs to note the Title of the alarm.  (Alexa, what is this alarm?  "The Alarm is to Wash the Car")

OMG!  I've been harping on this since I got my first Echo last (2014) December.  I call or write about every two weeks asking for the same thing- recurring or redundant alarms so I don't have to ask her each and every night before I fall asleep.  Nice to know someone else is on the same ship as I am!
