Review the Works with Alexa program guidelines
Smart home device manufacturers must comply with the Works with Alexa Program Guidelines to be eligible to apply for Works with Alexa certification. Works with Alexa certification is required to use the Works with Alexa badge.
Submit your products for Works with Alexa certification
After you have reviewed the program guidelines, you can move on to Works with Alexa certification. We recommend that you allocate at least one month for the certification process. Use the Alexa Certification Console to apply for certification, track the certification progress of your different products, and request your badges after you pass certification. Amazon uses an independent third-party testing facility to test your product for WWA compatibility. Each time you submit a product for testing, you must pay a fee to the testing facility determined by the testing scope of your product. For details, including prerequisites, general workflow and time frames, and an estimate of the fees associated with testing your product, see Certification Workflow.
