I have Alexa announcements set up and it's working for motion detection alerts. But when I define an activity zone, they are not being used by Alexa announcements. (I have a tree moving in the lower part of my image, specifically cut off by an activity zone, but I still get Alexa saying "motion detected".) Also, I don't get push notifications for these motion alerts.

 

Are push notifications using activity zones and Alexa integration not using activity zones?

Hey linagee and Ziya,

 

Amazon Alexa announces on any motion detection; it doesn't announce for any set activity zones.
