Amazon Alexa works with ’Routines’ allowing the voice assistant to complete multiple tasks with a single voice command.
With Routines users no longer have to give multiple commands to Alexa, such as “Alexa, turn off the living room lamp,” “Alexa, turn down the thermostat,” and “Alexa, what's the weather”. Instead, you can let Alexa take care of them with one command. And Alexa can give you a spoken notification back.
Routines can be triggered in two ways. You give the command to start a routine. For example ‘movie time’.
Or use a contact or motion sensor to start a routine automatically.
