If you have a flash camera, you can now use it in Germany to start a routine as soon as motion is detected. Previously this was only available in the North American region (US and Canada).
Blink cameras as a routine operator
Amazon Blink has now also created an option for Germany to run Alexa routines. If the camera detects movement, it can initiate actions that then output a text via Amazon’s Alexa, for example. Of course, it can also be used to control a lamp or the like. This way, you can be easily told when motion is detected at the front door and the front door lights up.
But it’s not just movement that can start the routine. The exact opposite situation can also be visualized, that is, if no movement is detected. This is useful, for example, if you have a camera installed in your grandparents’ kitchen and no movement has been detected here until a certain time. Then Alexa can output the text “Find Dad”.
How to create a trigger for Alexa actions can be found at this side is reading.
