    Alexa Routines Custom Command

    Amaazon has just launched a new Alexa Routines capability, with little fanfare. You can now enter a custom Alexa command as a routine action. The custom command is entered exactly as you would say it (minus the wake word).

    I am using it to turn off Alexa Guard. Routines has a way to turn on Alexa Guard as a routine action item, but not to turn it off. Now there is a way to do it.

    The Custom Alexa command is the last (bottom) entry when selecting a routine action.

    As I understand it, there can be only one custom Alexa command per routine, and it has to be last. Also, this is being rolled out in the US only at the moment (not all in the US has even got it yet).

    Its fairly easy to run Homeseer events from Alexa. Now if there is ever discovered an "easy" way to trigger Alexa routines from Homeseer, the circle will be complete.
