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.

Successfully got alexa show to instantly show doorbell
« on: November 30, 2020, 08:29:05 am »
Just got this to work this past weekend....

First add a routine to alexa

Then choose device ( doorbell name)

Next choose (you have the option of doorbell rings or senses motion)

Add "Custom" .... typing  "show me the (named view like front door)"  (this will auto add alexa, to it)

Next choose which device(s) to show on.

It's been working good... I chose motion because it still takes a few seconds to connect and motion should occur before anyone actually gets to the doorbell.
