I have alexa smart plugs x3 connected to table lamps. Can I time them to come on and go off at chosen times while I am out of my home?
Hi there, smydo. Welcome to the Digital and Device Forums!
That's an interesting question, the short answer is 'Yes'. There are two ways you can go about this:
To create a Routine in the Alexa app on your mobile device:
Go to the menu and select Routines.
Select the + icon in the top right corner.
Select When This Happens, and then choose how to trigger the Routine. For sensor routines, select your installed motion or contact sensor.
Select Add action, and then choose which action it completes. To receive a push notification when a motion or contact sensor is triggered,select Send notification.
Under From, select which device controls the routine.
Enable Guard mode:
Guard is an Alexa feature that helps you keep your home safe. When you set Guard to Away mode, if an Echo device detects the sound of smoke alarms, carbon monoxide alarms, or glass breaking, Alexa can send you Smart Alerts, via notifications to your phone. If you have a Ring, ADT Pulse, or ADT Control security system, Alexa can also arm your system when you set Guard to Away mode, and you can opt to forward Smart Alerts to your security provider. And if you have connected smart lights, Alexa can automatically turn them on and off when Guard is in Away mode to make it look like someone is home.
