Using a message from a BLE device to trigger local Echo functionality

Can I use a message from an already-associated bluetooth device to trigger custom logic local to the Echo device?

Hi, For now, the only way to invoke skills is to do so via a voice command, such as "Alexa, ask [skill_name] to [function]". Thanks, Nick

I have similar kind of question. Can I send a command to my APP from the bluetooth device?

Hi, There is no way to send a command to your app from the bluetooth device. You may be able to create your own separate bluetooth server that handles such requests. Cheers, Nick
