If u use an echo device in conjunction with an ST open close door knock sensor, Echo now has doorbell chimes as an option when configuring an action in Echo routines, just throwing it out there for those interested and or not noticed
This is a much requested feature.
They’ve also add a dog barking (“animal sounds”) and sirens (“science fiction sound effects”).
Indeed. I found this last week and (thanks to @tonesto7) support has been added to Echo Speaks in the newest version as well
Actually it was your findings and code submission that got it added
I just built out the feature in Actions.
One thing I noticed is that the amount of sounds available are small but if you spend some time looking around under https://developer.amazon.com/docs/custom-skills/ask-soundlibrary.html
The device should support commands for any amazon sound effect whose name begins with amzn_sfx_
I’ve found a json from Amazon with the complete list of sound files which I will use to build a selectable list
