One of the most used Alexa Skills in our house is the Ubi Portal Skill. Of course, I’m biased, but I use it most for setting up calls with family. However, there are three ways that it can be used on a daily basis. They can be set up for free (Twilio will charge for an account) on portal.theubi.com and using Alexa.
1.“Alexa, tell portal find my phone”
This lesson will initiate a phone call to your phone and help you find it.
2. “Alexa, tell portal call family”
This lesson will initiate a conference call between your phone and one or more family members’ phones.
3. “Alexa, tell portal get help”
This lesson will initiate a phone call with a pre-determined message to a family member. You can also tie it to sending an SMS and an email.
For a daily user, the Twilio fees over the course of a year should be under $10.
