Alexa Routines - infinite (?) voice command options


Recommended Posts



with the current alexa options most of us have been stuck with Turn on and Turn off

This doesn't make sense for gates and garage doors and has other limits as well such as being able to say "Alexa I'm home" or "Alexa, Start my day"


If you have the latest version of the ios or android app you'll see routines in the menu options



These are three of the  routines I added

Create A new routine gives the folowing



The first part is what you say and the second option is what this voice command does

There appears be be no limitation to what you can add to the  first part


In the Add Action , click Smart Home to see a list of your devices



Select the device 




Choose 100% brightness (but maybe 1% will also work)

(brightness appears for me as I use the HA Bridge and my devices are an Hue bridge Emulation




Click Next and you're done


I also added another action to get alexa to say something back besides the usual 'okay'


and that's it !!


It may take 30 second functional but it works a dream f(for me anyway)
