Have Alexa say “Door is open” when a door is open using Alexa Routines.

You can arm and disarm your home as well as interact with devices including locks, lights, dimmers, switches, and plugs.

Create an Alexa group, such as Bedroom or Downstairs, and add the device(s) or sensor(s) to the group. More information is available at http://amzn.to/2965dCE

abode account with your username and password
abode Smart Security Kit or abode Iota Security Kit

Device names such as “Office Lamp” and “Bedroom Switch” are recommended over names such as “Off Lmp” or “John & Janes”.
