I'm trying to create a routine where when the pause command is given to Alexa it will  trigger an ISY lighting scene along with pausing tv, problem is Alexa doesn't like "pause" as a phrase for the routine. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Make a program and call it Pause in the ISY Portal. In the program do whatever you want.

Alexa...turn on Pause

On runs then, Off runs Else

I'm back trying to make this work, when I say "play" the Fire Cube will play content, same when I say  "pause" it will pause content. I'd like Alexa to also run a lighting scene with the command. I made two ISY programs called play and pause that have the lighting scene I want for each command in the programs. When I say "turn on pause" the Fire Cube pauses content and lighting scene in that program is run but when I say "turn on play" just the lighting scene in that program runs and Fire Cube doesn't play content, I'm confused
