“Alexa, Start My Day” – Turn On The Lights, Play Your Favorite Song, And Start The Coffee Pot All At The Same Time Using Alexa Routines
With the new release of Routines, Amazon devices have become very smart! Routines work as an umbrella under which multiple actions can take place. It can be activated by a single voice command. You can customize the Routines with specific keywords and schedule them to take place at certain times!
From the Alexa app, go to the Settings page by pressing the cog on the bottom right. Scroll down and select Routines from the Accounts page. Create a New Routine by pressing the Plus button on the top right. This is where you’ll configure what particular action will trigger your scene. On the next page, choose how you want your routine to be triggered: either when you say a phrase or at a certain time. Next, choose Add action. You can choose from several categories, or even get Alexa to speak certain phrases to you.
Start Your Day, Happy Birthday Greeting, Change the Mood, Welcome Home, and Traffic Update are the most popular Routines. For example, with the first one, you can configure it to set your alarm, start your coffee, get the daily news, and more. You can set this to happen every weekday at a specific time.
