I have an automation that at a given time, checks to see if a virtual switch is “on”. If so, it turns on a light. This works great. In addition to the light turning on, I would like to play an Alexa skill (radio station) or at least have Alexa say something to me.
I’m not sure how to approach this. I can’t (to my knowledge) kick off an Alexa skill from within an automation. From the Alexa routine side, I don’t see a way to evaluate a virtual switch and then execute a skill. Is this something that can be done with IFTTT? I’ve tried using IFTTT, but I don’t see Amazon Alexa in the “That” portion.
Thanks for any direction you can provide.
