From household devices that people use every day like lights and locks, to new devices that only you can imagine, you can connect any device to Alexa to deliver a better customer experience. With Alexa, you can enable customers to control your device using their voice, and automatically using Alexa Routines. You can also build fun accessories that respond in synchronization with a customer’s Echo device. And you can certify your products through the Works with Alexa program to make it easy for customers to discover them and to ensure an intuitive and hassle-free experience.
You can enable customers to use Alexa to control thermostat settings and to query current temperatures. We support single, dual, and triple set-point thermostats, as well as mode query and control.
The Smart Home Skill API is flexible enough to support almost any smart device. You can use our device interfaces like building blocks, putting them together in interesting ways to support any device – including garage door openers, sensors, shades, and more. You can use our device templates to get started.
“The Works with Alexa program opens up a huge number of opportunities for partnerships, visibility, and general customer awareness of our products,” says Elana Fishman, Co-Founder and COO, Wyze Labs. “Works with Alexa has helped us grow our sales even faster by expanding both our online and offline footprint, while delivering a great experience to our customers.”
Using the Alexa Gadgets Toolkit, Gemmy created a variety of dancing plush animatronics that respond to customer interactions with Alexa, such as lip syncing to Alexa's reading of the weather report, reacting to timers, and moving and grooving to tunes from Amazon Music.
