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.

Scheduling music to start at a scheduled time and then stop at a scheduled time

0 Members and 2 Guests are viewing this topic.

I want the echo to play music or a radio station during the evening hours when we are away to make the house sound lived in.  I can schedule a time for the music to start but have found no way to tell Alexa to stop at a specified time.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You could always just tell it to turn off the music in xxx minutes or hours.  It will confirm the shut off time for you.

The problem is when I'm away I can't  tell Alexa to do that and I can't find a way to give Alexa a command on a Schedule

Hm a command to 'shut up'  does seem to be missing from routines... Workarounds might be setting the volume to 0 or selecting a playlist of a specific length in the routine.
My Alexa stuff:
Echo Show, Echo Spot, 4 Echo Dots, Fire TV, Fire tablet,
Vobot Alarmclock, Logitech Harmony Hub, house full of Hue lights,
Ring 1+2 doorbells, Tado smart thermostat, Plex server.

You can't stop the music from playing in your app? I can control music on my app. Why can't you do that?

I was in Canada and I was able to turn on/off my light using my voice in the app.

I have a cam in my bedroom so I can see it real time. My mind is blown.

There's a song called "One Second of Silence" on Amazon Music. I have used this in a Routine to effectively stop it playing.
