using alexa to use siri shortcuts...


Standard Member
So, here is the main problem

I need to boot, and make my pc sleep without the tv on, using my voice. I do not like siri, it won't work all the time, unless I unlock my phone and that is what I don't want to do. I have alexa flex in my room, where I call a bed time routine and that turns power on my room, turns my TV on, turns my light on and allows me to get into bed, where I can ask for my PC or Sky q to be on.

Problems, I can get Wake and sleep working but only via 1 app, not sure why. the App is called wolow, This has now got a feature where it allows apples shortcuts to access the features where I have setup Sleep and wake, using my voice, but this is with Siri, and I need it to be Alexa.

What I have done, is tried to use "middle men" by using apps like pushcut, and ifttt. I have no experience with these two and having some difficulties. My main difficulty with Pushcut is that it will only work if I "open" the notification, and I don't have a clue how to use IFTTT, which I think is my main only option.

Any advise?

PS, I am autistic and disabled so moving and doing many tasks are hard, and just want to use as little commands as possible.
