Hello Carl,

The most dependable method would be to have the service sounding the alarm make the phone call.

Currently, there is NOT a way to do this in an Alexa Routine as the sound triggers are limited to:

  • Dog Barking
  • Baby Crying
  • Snoring
  • Coughing

These can be used as Alexa Routine Triggers with a “custom” action to place a phone call such as

“call xxx’s mobile”


In the meantime, a paid service Alexa Guard Plus, can be used to listen for alarms sounds and make phone calls.

Note that the free Alexa Guard service can only send notifications to your mobile.
