Have Amazon Echo Sound When Intruder Is Present

(Nathan Parker) #1

Is there a way to set it up so that an Amazon Echo would “start talking” if a door or window was opened while the system was set to arm so that it would “surprise” an intruder? We did purchase the Fortrezz Siren as well and are working on setting that up. I just think it would be neat to have the Amazon Echo also sound some noise like a dog barking or just start talking as well. Would really add to the effect of an intruder was present.

Thanks for the info! I have a Mac, iPhone, and iPad. Would your solutions work with those?

VLC thing will work on a Mac. That is exactly how I did it. The only reason I am testing the other solution is it won’t require my mac to run 24/7
