Alexa - Using Voice Commands

Alexa - Using Voice Commands

 

  • To start a voice command, the Alexa-enabled device must be addressed by its wake up word.  "Alexa" is the default wake-up word for Alexa-enabled devices.
  • Your Alexa-enabled device will recognize each of your Digital Life devices by the name that you assigned to them in your Digital Life app. When asking your Alexa-enabled device to perform a task, you will need to refer to the Digital Life device by that name. For example:  "Alexa, ask Digital Life to lock the 'Front Door'."
  • If you experience issues with the Skill recognizing your device, please use the name of the device in the Digital Life app.
  • To learn more and finding help on setting up and using the AT&T Digital Life Skill for Amazon Alexa, please visit Solution Center in the Digital Life app.
  • The voice command for the Alexa-enabled device must be structured properly so that your Alexa-enabled device understands the commands.  It is important that you state the command specific to Digital Life as it appears below, always using the name assigned to your Digital Life devices in the Digital Life app.
  • Your Alexa-enabled device can only accept one command at a time. You cannot give multiple commands in a single sentence, such as, "Alexa, ask Digital Life to turn on my kitchen light and arm my system."

Here are some example phrases:

To dim lights:

"Alexa, ask Digital Life dim my 'Living Room' light"

"Alexa, ask Digital Life to dim the 'Bedroom Light' to 20 percent"

 

To arm system:

"Alexa, ask Digital Life to arm my system 'Stay""

"Alexa, ask Digital Life to set my system to 'Away'"

Note: Disarming the system by voice command is disabled by design to ensure your safety and security.

 

 To manage thermostat:

"Alexa, ask Digital Life to set the 'Hallway Thermostat' to 72 degrees"

"Alexa, ask Digital Life to set the 'Hallway Thermostat' mode to heat"

 

To run programs:

"Alexa, ask Digital Life to run my 'All Lights Off' program"

 

To lock doors:

 "Alexa, ask Digital Life to lock my 'Front Door'"

"Alexa ask Digital Life is my 'Front Door' locked"

Re: Alexa - Using Voice Commands

May I have a list of all of the Alexa enabled commands verbatim. I attempted the command above for locking the door and it said I had to do it in the Digital Life app.

@FeliciaKersaint "Alexa, ask Digital Life to lock my 'Front Door'" You have to "say ask Digital Life to...."
