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 routine possible?
« on: December 23, 2018, 06:35:16 pm »
I've tried to create a routine that I can use when I go to bed, but it doesn't appear to be possible. Can I create a routine that starts when I say, "Alexa, good night" that does the following...

- Asks me to set a wake up alarm
- Tells me "Good Night"
- Turns off all the lights in the "living room" group
- Starts my Sleep Sounds skill to play sound for two hours

I know the last 3 is doable. Now the first one, actually is interesting, that is how a real interactive AI should be. But alas, as far as I know, it's not included in routine actions.

You can set up your alarm as recurring though by yourself but not by Alexa.

Good idea though. I am guessing they will add that in the future.

Not just for alarms, I hope.

I don't know what I am doing wrong... I can't find any way to interact with a skill when setting up a routine.

:(

they all look doable, you would set the first one the same way you setup the second one if it is only just a reminder

My bad there is no skill action to add on routine. I did Google and Reddit nerds all say to use Spotify   for sleep sounds instead
