Good morning all. Just posting to see if anyone can assist or help me find an alternate solution.
I was using Smartthings with Echo Speaks to monitor several door contacts. Im just looking for what seems to be some simple functionality which I had working perfectly up until September 8 when Echo Speaks was shut down.
Basically I would like to monitor door contacts and have Alexa Announce “Close Front Door” after the contact has been open for xx seconds and continue to announce every xx seconds until the contact is closed.
I was using this for my mother who has dementia and it was absolutely perfect. I understand this can be accomplished with Alexa routines however from what I can tell Alexa routines do not allow “repeat until” notifications.
Please excuse me if this has already been addressed several times there is alot to sort through. Does anyone know any other simple options using An echo dot and smart things? I understand there is supposed to be a new release of echo speaks that is supposed to have some limited functionality which I havent seen yet.
