I'm wondering if anyone is running Amazon's Echo/Alexa systems and Apple's Homekit at this same time? I've got a bunch of Echo devices and 'stuff' connected to them. but I'm rapidly becoming disillusioned with Amazon's commitment to creating an environment where I can create the routines that I'd like. For example, I'd like to setup a routine that would shut off my AC (thru my ecobee thermostat if the front door is left open for more than 5 minutes. Can't do it with Alexa. Can't even do it with ecobee's own door sensors.

I know I could do this with SmartThings but that's still too strongly aimed at the DIY market and not at the home consumer.

And while I've got a number of Echo's around the house, I've also got iPad's and iPhones as well.
