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.

Routine using two skills
« on: February 06, 2021, 12:46:42 pm »
I have a Schlage door lock and ADT. I can control both using Alexa. Is it possible to create a routine such that when I unlock the door, the alarm is disarmed at the same time?

You may be able to use a custom action.
See this page https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=GLXY7RFX3L5GH2VR

In your routine, the trigger will be when you unlock your Schlage. The action will be a custom action that does something like "ask ADT to disarm."

This assumes that your Schlage can trigger events in Alexa routines. And it also assumes that ADT can be disarmed using a custom action.
