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.

Merkury Innovations Water Flood Sensor
« on: October 14, 2021, 03:15:21 pm »
I recently picked up a couple of Merkury Innovations Water Flood Sensors on clearance at Walmart for $5 each.  They work very well, alerting me to a water leak on my phone while I was out of state a few days ago.  It also sounded a loud alarm which our dogsitter heard immediately. 

I would like to have Alexa also make an announcement about a water leak - although our dogsitter heard the alarm sound, she had no idea what it was for.  The Water Flood Sensors work thru the Geeni app to alert me on my phone.  The Geeni skill is activated in Alexa and Alexa can control my Merkury Innovations light bulbs thru the Geeni App.

I have tried contacting Merkury Innovations about this.  All they told me was that since it's a sensor, Alexa can't "control" it.

Any ideas how to have Alexa announce a water flood leak?
