So the new notification option in Alexa has been working great. I have an echo dot notify us when the front door or balcony doors have been opened. But what I am trying to do is to get her to notify us when there’s a knock at the front door.
I’m using a V3 hub and the new multipurpose sensor on the front door. To simplify this post I’ll say I can automate it via CoRE using either a virtual contact sensor or virtual motion sensor but the issue is Alexa doesn’t seem to get triggered based on virtual devices which is weird. For example I created a virtual motion sensor and in Alexa it will show when motion has been detected or not but it just won’t trigger a routine based on the virtual motion sensor.
Anyone found a way to do what I am trying to do?
