Yes! I'd like to be able to use either a local or web-based API call to trigger device actions and defined routines without using my voice. As an example, I currently have a desktop application that notices when Zoom starts a meeting and plays a recording of my voice saying "Alexa, I'm on a call" (where "I'm on a call" is a routine that turns on certain lights and turns off a fan).
That's not terribly reliable; it would be *much* better to be able call a URL from scripts like that and get the same outcome as speaking to Alexa.Darren Meyer supported this idea ·
