Title: can a routine enable a routine ???
Post by: schuh8 on May 18, 2020, 09:16:16 pm
I have a motion sensor, which, when activated, uses a routine to announce through Alexa "motion detected". I would like to enable or disable this routine by voice. In other words I would like to say, "Alexa enable motion sensor". Can this be done with another routine ?     ....or am I missing something obvious ?

I've been wanting this too, but apparently it cannot be done by voice. The only way to disable a routine is to edit the routine and tap the toggle from enable -> disable. It's a pain because the app is so slow and you have to find the routine (if you have several).
