I’d love to hear some ideas on how to accomplish this. I’m sure CoRe is an option, but I’d really love some guidance.
My alarm (CPI) doesn’t interface with SmartThings, however it can be armed via Echo.
My idea is to use a presence sensor, or a combination of sensors, to arm my alarm. The problem is I can’t accomplish this with just Echo or just SmartThings.
Here’s what I’ve come up with: when the sensor event is triggered, SmartThings will have my Sonos announce, “Alexa, tell CPI to arm the alarm.”
So I’ve gotten this far and the Echo responds, but here’s where I hit a wall. The CPI skill requires a yes or no confirmation before the alarm will arm.
I need to figure out a way for the Sonos to wait X number of seconds after the first intent to allow for the Echo to respond, and then speak the confirmation.
I’d love to hear your ideas.
