When controlling devices using Alexa voice commands, you need to specify by name which device to use. There are two ways to control devices: Use the device name you set up already. These are shown in the “Devices” section of the Abode mobile app and the “Dashboard” section of the Abode App. You can change the name of a device using the Abode App (https://my.goabode.com). Create an Alexa group, such as Bedroom or Downstairs, and add the device(s) or sensor(s) to the group.
More information is available at http://amzn.to/2965dCE. In order to use Alexa and Abode, you will need: Abode account with your username and password and an Abode Smart Security Kit or Abode Iota Security Kit
Hints: Device names such as “Office Lamp” and “Bedroom Switch” are recommended over names such as “Off Lmp” or “John & Janes”. Standalone Abode motion sensors sold prior to 2019 are not supported. All onboard Iota motion sensors are supported.
