Alexa Listening State

Hey guys,

Is there a way to tell when Alexa is listening and then trigger mute for the duration in other media_players?


I don’t think there is. The custom integration Alexa media player gives you a sensor last_alexa which you can use to trigger an automation, but only when it changes - not a lot of use if you only have one!

What you’re asking for is a signal from each echo device to say the wake word has been recognised - I don’t think that’s available yet.

Thanks mate,

I cant see it either.

Someone was saying that they could mute their TV when Alexa was listening after the wake word. But I see no changes in state. Unless Im looking in the wrong place.
