Blueprint to make a TTS announcement when a binary sensor goes from off to on, e.g. a doorbell sensor.
You can select a binary sensor, an echo device to make the announcement and customise the announced message.
NOTE: This only works with amazon echo devices and you require the alexa media player add-on.
You can announce to multiple echo devices by inputting a comma separated list or a group.
