    yes this is possible with home assistant (ha). I haven't used any of the alarmdotcom ha integrations myself, but there was a discussion here a while back that could get you started.

  • alexa_media_player

    This is a custom component to allow control of Amazon Alexa devices in Home Assistant using the unofficial Alexa API.

    the ha hacs alexa media player integration provides alexa text-to-speech, works great.
