Phase 4: Testing and certification

In this phase, you test your device and your Alexa integrations. After you complete testing, you submit your product for certification. You must certify all ACK-based devices with WWA and FFS.

If your ACK-based device is using the Dash Replenishment or Alexa Smart Energy features, contact your ACK representative for additional certification instructions.

Key tasks

  • Test your devices with a group of users. Make sure that your device works as intended and includes all the features you outlined in the previous phases. Complete these tests before you submit your devices for certification.
  • Complete self-testing of the required WWA and FFS test-cases for your device.
  • Submit your product for Works with Alexa and FFS certifications. For more details about certification, see Apply for Works with Alexa Certification.
