    I'd look into node red. There's a node (alexa-remote) that can launch routines within. If you then have the homeseer nodes installed, you could then trigger routines based on a device, etc.

      Just to sum this up it looks like Node Red is the best route so far unless any other users chip in with another solution.
      The options identified so far seem to be:

      Node Red

      A second speaker client talking to an Echo Dot in some sort of box for acoustic isolation

      Use a Switchbot switch to push a Flic button. https://flic.io/alexa?utm_source=mai...eid=faf9ebdfe7

      Using ISY state variables if you are already using the ISYInsteon plugin

      Using special dual definition (switch + contact) virtual devices in Hubitat if you are already using the mcsHubitat plugin. https://community.hubitat.com/t/cont...-hubitat/61094

          With Node Red and the Remote2 contrib, or the new spinoff which is rumored to stay connected, there is a Routine Node which has an Execute Routine option. You would need to trigger the flow using the same HomeSeer device which triggers the HomeSeer Event as an Event cannot trigger a flow. But otherwise it appears to be a straightfoward flow. I do not use Alexa, though, so I have not tested. I do have an Echo Flex but it isn't plugged in and I have not done anything with Routines.

            You wouldn't happen to have a screen shot or a quick step by step how to connect all the right nodes in Node-Red would you?

              See these instructions for enabling TTS to Alexa. You would only need to modify the Alexa node to run the routine. There are other write-ups in the Node Red forum and the Alexa subforum to Node Red
