AVS Integration for AWS IoT Overview

Alexa Voice Service (AVS) Integration is a new feature of AWS IoT Core that enables device makers to make any connected device an Alexa Built-in device. AVS Integration for AWS IoT (AIA) reduces both the cost and complexity of producing Alexa Built-in devices by offloading compute- and memory-intensive tasks from physical devices to the cloud. With the reduction in the engineering bill of materials (eBoM) cost, device makers can now cost-effectively build new categories of differentiated voice-enabled products, such as light switches, thermostats, small appliances, and more. This allows end users to talk directly to Alexa in new parts of their home, office, and hotel rooms for a truly ambient experience.

Get started by familiarizing yourself with the API Mechanics, or dive right in and take a look at the API Reference for all AIA capability interfaces.
