Multiple subscription with single Paypal account (TriggerCMD SmartHome)
I believe that you can only link 1 Alexa account per 1 TriggerCMD account. My requirement is that only 1 echo device can control 1 computer and not control other computers. I know this can be done using parameters, but I like the SmartHome App where you don't have to specify the computer name when triggering the command.
So my question is, I don't mind creating a new TriggerCMD account and adding a subscription, however, is it possible that I subscribe using a Paypal account that has already an existing subscription? Let me know if this is possible.
@esaltat, yes, that's possible - you can use 1 Paypal account to subscribe 2 TRIGGERcmd accounts.
I just want to confirm I understand your use case.
You plan to use 2 Amazon accounts, and log them into 2 separate Alexas?
Amazon/Alexa account 1 -> TRIGGERcmd account 1 -> Computer 1
Amazon/Alexa account 2 -> TRIGGERcmd account 2 -> Computer 2
I just want to make sure you know you can do this too:
Amazon/Alexa account 1 -> TRIGGERcmd account 1 -> Computer 1 AND Computer 2
Only one of the two computers can be your default though, so you'll have to say:
"Alexa turn on calculator" (assuming computer 1 is your default)
"Alexa turn on calculator on computer 2"
Thanks for confirming.
I plan on creating 2 amazon accounts and log them into 2 separate echo devices. Echo devices must be separated and cannot control other computers. So it's a 1 to1 relationship, 1 echo device per 1 computer.
@esaltat, got it. Yea that should work fine.
I just want to ask how many computers can I add to 1 Triggercmd account and how can I change or shorten the phrase “Alexa turns on calculator on computer 2”? If I have 10 PCs and 1 Alex, can I use one phrase to turn all PCs on or off?
@JeryGale, if you're subscribed you can have multiple computers.
You could create an Alexa routine to run a command on multiple PC's at once.
You can assign any phrase to our Alexa routine - for example "computers off".
Alexa routines can have multiple actions.
If you have the Smart Home Alexa skill enabled, your commands will show up under "Smart Home" when you add your actions.
So you could say, "Alexa, computers off" and have it run your shutdown command on all of your PC's.
Turning the computers on would require you to setup a Wake-On-Lan script. I have a command that can turn my PC on that runs on my Raspberry Pi because it's always on.
