I have many Alexa devices and a ST hub in the house, and I would like to create a routine to play an MP3 clip, turn on several devices, and navigate to a certain channel/app. Unfortunately, the limitations in the Alexa app is preventing me from doing all of it in one routine from a voice command issued to Alexa.
I am new to the ST world and have yet to be able to get anything set up. I was hoping to get some assistance from the community. The details of what my Alexa routine looks like so far follows:
Routine name: Sunday Football
Routine launch command: When you say “Time for football”
Power on Tray (Smarthome device in Alexa) - Alexa enabled switch on/off capable
Power on Cinemate (Smarthome device in Alexa) - IR blaster device to power on Bose sound system
Power on FirestickTV (Fire TV stick in Alexa) - Used to turn on/off a Wemax projector via CEC
The above is working, the following is not
Play custom MP3 - I’ve tried a number of things, Plex, MyMusic, and Voice Monkey - All have announcements
Open YouTube - Should be a Voice command that FireTV responds to
Go to Sunday ticket - Should be a Voice command that FireTV responds to
Record Chicago Bears game - Should be a Voice command that FireTV responds to
Play Chicago Bears game - Should be a Voice command that FireTV responds to
I’ve spent far more hours trying to accomplish this than I should have had to. I am pretty technically capable but have yet to be able to create a routine. Any/all assistance building this out would be greatly appreciated.
