    At the moment, Alexa is available only for US, UK and Italian accounts. We are working to add more.

    Alexa will only be able to control the devices you have exposed through the Alexa Interface and only on the installation you have selected while enabling the Alexa Skill.

    • Open Settings -> Expose Devices and select Add new interface. Select Amazon Alexa
    • Add devices to be integrated
