    I was going to look into that feature this morning, but Alexa hasn't released it to my system yet. It said it would notify me when it was enabled.

      Yea that happened to me on my ipad. But I went to my phone and activated the account. Was wondering if someone one else has used it and how did it work for them. Still haven't played with it yet.

        I tried this but I'm getting an error in the Log.

        ERROR: The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.

        I created the script.

        Sub Main(ByVal notification As String)
        dim accessCode = "ACCESS_CODE"
        dim host = "https://api.notifymyecho.com"
        dim path = "/v1/NotifyMe?notification="+notification+"&accessCode="+accessCo de
        dim result = hs.GetURL(host, path, TRUE, 443)
        hs.WriteLog("msg", result)
        End Sub

          What does it have to notify?

            Where is says "access code" you need to put the code sent to you by email.

                I did get it to work with https://api.notifymyecho.com/v1/Noti...de=ACCESS_CODE

                All this does is send a notification to the echo. It does not speak the notification until you see the green ring flashing on your Echo and ask it to read the notification. I would rather get the notification sent to my phone as a text. If Amazon ever changes it to where it speaks the notification then I might use it. The only thing with that is if I get a notification and I'm out of the room i will miss the notification.

                  I was going to have it speak when my doorbell is rung.

                      I'm not sure either. I'm still getting the error so I havn't got that far.

                        I had to redo my post. I left my access code in the screenshot.

                        I figured it out, the reason I was getting the error The remote server returned an error: (400) Bad Request.

                        The message you want to send goes in the Parameters box above the script. Mine was blank so it was returning the error.

                          This is actually pretty cool if I understand it correctly. 2 questions 1 where do you get the access code and 2, does it send a notification with the green ring to all the Echoes In Your House? Thanks and Merry Christmas

                            1. To get started, just enable the skill, giving it permission to send notifications to your Alexa and linking it to your Amazon account so we can send a unique access code to the email address associated with that account. Next, just say, "Alexa, open Notify Me" and the skill will introduce itself and send your access code via email.

                            My email went to my junk folder so check there if you dont get the email. My email came right away.

                            2. I justed tested and the message went to both of my Echo's.

                              thanks for sharing... I was thinking about your request with the door bell.... I think this can be achieved with a routine in the Alexa app. My theory is... have the door bell switch enabled as a device in the Alexa app, then make the routine as follow.

                              switch : On
                              action: there some one in the front door.

                              the action should be that Alexa says "there some one ect....

                              I need to test this to be sure...
