I am very technically challenged, I’ve tried to get a developer account but it looks like it’s for real developers or teams or businesses. I’m none of those and don’t program at all or have the ability or time to learn. I’m just trying to make my house safer for a disabled and elderly parent.
We have a house full of echo dots and a centrally located google home mini. I purchased the smartthings smoke and co2 detectors to go with our other sensors and lights. Ideally, I wanted to trigger an announcement that there is smoke detected in room name. Alexa does not support that yet so I purchased a fabriq speaker after reading Amazon’s reviews. I’ll probably be returning it after a few days of reading show it’s obvious that this is not the ideal starter project a very tech challenged individual.
Is there another very easy way, without developer accounts to have alexa or a speaker or something announce or play a specific alarm throughout the house if any one of the first alert smoke detectors in smartthings are no longer clear for smoke or co2? I have not been able to trigger all of the devices together if one goes off.
