Amazon announces $20 Echo Buttons for playing trivia games with your family

Yeah, and there’s a developer API, so these may be able to be a $10 light switch button for some set ups. Very cool. :sunglasses:

$10 buttons that would work with ST would be great.


Can these be used as triggers?

Only if there’s a skill that recognizes them. That’s what the games that use them do.

I don’t know if @MichaelS has looked into their potential at all for something like askAlexa.

I actually have been asked a few times by folks to include these. I have heard rumors some developers were looking to integrate them with SmartThings, which would allow use in Ask Alexa today; however, I have not seem this DTH yet. Might be time for me to look into this.
