A routine that invokes showing a Web page on a visual device screen would be useful for lots of different applications.
Smart home integration for ip cameras is my intended use of this feature.
As most ip cameras are difficult or impossible to show on echo show type devices. This new feature would enable the screen to show the Web site containing the camera stream from a trigger via node red or other mqtt and smart home devices. Without any voice commands needed to be issued to the device directly.1 vote
Routines playing music triggered by a dismissed alarm should play the music only on the device which triggered the alarm.
i.e. I want to play music as soon as i wake up and dismiss my alarm. I have multiple echos in different rooms. Right now the music will always play on the same device no matter on which echo the alarm went off.
However it would be nice to specify it to the device which triggered the routine.
Like it is already possible for voice-triggered routines where you can select to play music from "the device you speak to".1 vote
Currently in alexa, I am able to add a routine that plays a sleepsounds music every night 10pm. But now the issue is I am not able to stop the skill after 10 minutes.
This feature should be added so that I can stop any routine after certain time.1 vote
