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.

can a routine enable a routine ???
« on: May 18, 2020, 09:16:16 pm »
I have a motion sensor, which, when activated, uses a routine to announce through Alexa "motion detected". I would like to enable or disable this routine by voice. In other words I would like to say, "Alexa enable motion sensor". Can this be done with another routine ?     ....or am I missing something obvious ?

I've been wanting this too, but apparently it cannot be done by voice. The only way to disable a routine is to edit the routine and tap the toggle from enable -> disable. It's a pain because the app is so slow and you have to find the routine (if you have several).
