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.

Echo with Brinks/alrm.com to arm/disarm?
« on: October 21, 2021, 02:24:32 pm »
I switched alarm companies to Brinks which uses Alarm.com and it doesn't look like Brinks has its own skill, and the alarm.com skill doesn't mention arm/disarm in its examples

Anybody got this configuration and are using it for arm/disarm from echo?

My goal is to modify the Good Night routine that uses a Custom command for "ask Alarm.com to arm stay" or whatever the syntax is.  Alexa Guard is worthless as it only recognized disarm and arm away (and only with ADT it seems).

I am not familiar with brinksecurity.   thought they were just armor cars.    I found the following article.   Maybe it will help

thanks, but no bueno.  They say they have a skill called "Brinks Home Security" but it's not coming up in search.

I think there's a disconnect with them and what they offer.  ADT had the same problem.
