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.

How to add an Alarm and a Sleep Timer to Routines
« on: November 17, 2018, 08:44:35 am »
I'm trying to set up a routine to do several functions but am stumped on how to set an alarm and a sleep timer.

What I'd like to do is create a Routine to do the following:

Alexa, Turn out the light <- got that
Alexa, Play the Rolling Stones on Amazon <- got that
Alexa, Set an alarm for 5:30 AM <- How do you do this
Alexa, Set a Sleep Timer for an hour and a half <- How do you do this

These all work by themselves using voice commands but there doesn't seem to be any way to enter a voice command directly or set a timer. When you go to Actions there are only eight choices which do not seem to include a timer?

You can't set an alarm in a Routine but you should be able to set a sleep timer. It isn't actually an option on its own but recently the option to set the duration for the Music option was added which will do what you want.
