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.

Simplified phrasing
« on: November 21, 2019, 11:18:34 am »
Surely I'm not the first to ask. When I tried searching the existing threads on a UK forum, I was prompted by my question in auto fill. That was encouraging at first but, unfortunately, that often-searched phrase had zero hits. 
So, how do I set up an easy phrase to substitute for a much longer required phrase within Alexa's head (AI, vocabulary, etc.).

I'm trying to replace, "Alexa, ask Harmony to set a sleep timer for 30 minutes" with "Alexa, good night."

I'm flexible on the phrasing if I shouldn't use one of the suggested phrases.

Bonus points if I can add in confirmation that the lights are turned off as well.

if the commands work in a routine, then create one with a short phrase.
