"Within SL if you set the sunset location to a location to the east of your location, you can trigger the scene say an hour ahead of your sunset"

I like your way of thinking :)

Amazon Alexa is a virtual assistance built in Amazon echo. Alexa has the capability to control your home gadgets your smart tv, lights, extenders, thermostats and more. So if you recently purchased an Amazon echo and want to install your Echo, here are some Step by step detail information for New echo dot setup

Amazon Echo Discussion / New alexa user help
« Last post by Cmccarter on March 11, 2019, 12:57:45 pm »
Just got my 1st echo dot and need a bit of help.
Setup---echo, wink multiple wink robots also have ifttt or yonomi but never used either.
here's what I would like to do
Presently have a wink robot to send me email or a text when mail arrives using a Motion sensor in mailbox that senses when the box is opened.
I would like alexa to announce that the mail has arrived.

seems simple but no idea how to do it. Open to suggestions/changes and yes I'm just being too lazy to pick
 up my phone and look at my email.

I have not done this myself, but I think it can be done with a mix of Smartthings, a Zwave temperature sensor, and IFTTT recipe.

Absolutely can be done with Smartthings.  Amazon is trying to capture some of the smart home market even though they don't have many actual programming options.  You can turn things on and off but beyond that its very limited.

If you are using 'Smart Life' to register your devices, sunset and sunrise can be used within there scenes (somewhat like a routine).  Otherwise not available within Alexa routines yet.
Within SL if you set the sunset location to a location to the east of your location, you can trigger the scene say an hour ahead of your sunset.
