I have seen some threads about people using contact sensors on doors paired with an amazon echo and an android app (Landroid, Big Talker, etc??) that would enable me to ask Alexa for the status of a specific door and have her voice if the door is open or closed. Secondly that when/if a door is opened it would trigger the amazon echo to verbilize “back door open” for example.
I am wondering if this is possible with a ring brand contact sensor and the above mentioned apps or if it has to be a specific brand contact sensor??
I am looking to start my home automation journey.
