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 any of you developers work on making Echo send a email when it hears sound in your house and open the speaker. I am not sure how you could make it wake up, but in alarm mode by command maybe any sound could wake it up. Maybe work like a IP camera without the camera. It would be possible to have it work as a baby monitor then sending to your cell phone. Even if it could not open the microphone, a email alert would get your attention. Just a thought.

Not gonna' happen.  While technically possible it would require a ridiculously Rube Goldberg combination of things to make it work, and even then it would most likely be quite unreliable.

You can accomplish what you want much more easily with a home automation hub (SmartThings, et al), a sensor or two and a little time setting up an automation rule.
