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.

Putting a time limit on how long an alarm sounds for.

OK so this is a bit of a long shot as i don't see how it could be possible but I thought I'd ask anyway incase someone has found a workaround or something.

We have a 'spot' in our bedroom which has an alarm to wake us up each morning. However most mornings one or both of us are up and out of the bedroom before the alarm sounds. For various reason I won't go into - we don't always remember to 'physically' cancel the alarm on the show or remember to say "Alexa, cancel alarm".

This results in the alarm sounding for ages (I've never actually measured how long it plays for) until one of us actually hears it and cancels it (I know I can cancel it from any alexa device).

It's not a huge problem (I could always set a later reminder to cancel the alarm lol) but I wondered if there was a hidden setting or something that I can set to only sound the alarm for 10 minutes or something like that?

Thanks for reading, and thanks in advance for any comments.
