Echo Announcement of Garage Doors Status at Sunset

Updated: Sep 16

This SharpTools routine uses SmartThings devices, Amazon Devices and the EchoSpeaks Application to report the status of my two garage doors at 20 minutes prior to sunset. The rules controlling this routine are written to report four potential states of my two doors. The rule also sends announcements to my echo device so that I will be reminded to take needed actions to ensure that may doors are closed and secured.
