Prototype Your Product

This guide outlines the steps to create an Alexa Connect Kit (ACK) product prototype. To prototype your devices the Development Kit for ACK comes with a sample HMCU and development board with an integrated ACK module. For details about ACK, see What is ACK?

First, you create a virtual product in the ACK console to define the Alexa capabilities that your product will support. Then you provision an ACK module as your virtual product and run a sample application on your hardware and control it with the Alexa app. Finally, you learn how to edit your virtual product and application to customize your prototype.
