8 second response time is not sufficient for IoT use cases
I'm working on an IoT Industrial use case for which I need an "open" response window to communicate with the Alexa service. For a successful proof-of-concept, a user needs to remain focused on the task at hand, while Alexa responds to voice cues in the background to drive IoT devices. The 8-second user response limit is unusable in this scenario.
