    I’m currently working on an Alexa doorbell skill.

     

    From what I’ve seen of the Alexa api, there is no way of announcing specific messsages.

    Hi all

     

    I found out a way to get Alexa to say specific messages. You can do this through Alexa routines. So with the Alexa skill I’m building you’ll be able to trigger a routine and get Alexa to announce whatever you want!

     

    If you want me to let you know when the skill is ready then join my mailing list using the link below

    Hi @ianakapilotlight,

     

    I'm really interested in your doorbell project :-)

    Especially on the possibility to find a way to trigger Alexa to say what we want !

    Do you plan to share your development in an opened repository like github, to inspire us ? :rolleyes:

     

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    You know Sonos is doing this already, I notice a delay of around 8 seconds is this  a normal value?

    Any idea what the delay on Alexa could or should be?

    Kage, Happenly I have already a Sonos for several years and I am happy with it.

    Alexa I have tryed but I did not liked it, if I compare with theeasy thing in Homey.

    I am stil curious for the Alexa since my doorbell is broken down. Now I can convince my wife perhaps to buy an Alexa instead of a new doorbell, hahahaha

    Hi @

    Please login or register to see this link.

     

    Thank you for your interest in my little project. It's still very much in development at the moment, however I hope to have a complete solution in around a month. During this time I need to complete testing of the solution and pass the Amazon certification process.

     

    I have it running in my personal account (Amazon do not provide the ability to share this with others).

     

    I have attached some screen shots to give you a flavour of what you can do with it once configured. The key to this is seeing the doorbell not necessarily as a 'doorbell' although it can be used as such, but also as a 'Trigger' to start routines within the Alexa system.

    When you click 'Add action' this is the screen Alexa displays.
