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 Connect - Invalid phone number
« on: June 24, 2018, 05:50:03 pm »
I have an echo connect and would like to use voice controls to open and close my driveway gate.  To open and close my gate I use my landline phone and dial ##81# (to open) and ##83# (to close).  I have added "Open Gate" and "Close Gate" to my contacts with phone numbers ##81# and ##83#, but when I ask Alexa to "Call Open Gate"...Alexa Connect will not dial ##81# and Alexa simply replies "Sorry...that is not a valid phone number".  Any ideas how to get around this?

Thanks.  Sean W.
