Play any Recorded MP3 file on your Amazon Echo following the Detection of Motion

In the following video I'll explain how you can set up your amazon echo device to play a vicious dog barking sound whenever motion is detected on your front porch. I use SmartThings as part of my smart home eco system. SmartThings allows me to do more advanced automations. In this particular instance, since I have our family's smart phones setup as presence sensing devices, my SmartThings hub knows if a family member is present at our home or if all members are away. I use this feature to trigger the dog barking sound on my echo devices only while no one is at our home. Otherwise, the automation might become annoying.

Watch the following video to see how this automation was created. I also show a demo of the automation in action...
