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.

"coming home" function
« on: May 15, 2021, 09:12:21 am »
Hello Peoples,

Iam trying to setup my echo dot 4 that she automatically plays music when Iam coming home.
My Phone is connected via Blueetooth to her. Is is possible to do it with that?

regards

You can use IFTTT to set up a geofence on your phone. IFTTT calls these things recipes. You would create a recipe to detect that you (your phone) has come home and then play music on your Echo device.

IFTTT used to be completely free. There is a limited free version now. I'm not sure if geofencing is part of the free version. I haven't used IFTTT in a few years.

There are probably other ways to do the same thing without using IFTTT. This is just one way that I thought of immediately.
