Is Alexa the most popular name in your home? “Alexa, order dog food”, “Alexa, play country music”, or my kids’ favorite—“Alexa, tell me a joke.” I don’t know about you, but the first part of my morning routine is to ask “Alexa, what’s the weather today?” What if you could ask Amazon Alexa about weather conditions in your backyard or she could tell you the temperature in the baby’s room? Well, now you can!! The new AcuRite® Access™ now has the capability to connect to Amazon Echo.
Our technical engineers at AcuRite have developed a skill for Amazon Echo that will make it even easier for you to interact with My AcuRite and the environmental monitoring data your devices are reporting. Just ask Alexa:
"Alexa, ask My AcuRite what are my current conditions"
"Alexa, ask My AcuRite about my backyard weather"
With these simple commands at your disposal, you will have quick access to the information you need to ensure that your family is prepared for the day’s conditions and get everyone out the door geared up for the day. Umbrella? Check. Winter coat? Check. Sunscreen? Check. You get the idea. Planning your Day with Confidence on those hectic mornings just got even easier.
The integration of AcuRite Access with Amazon Echo is just the start of AcuRite integrating with the technology that you rely on daily in your smart home. As a busy mom, I can't wait to enable the My AcuRite skill on Amazon Alexa to make my life easier. Already have an AcuRite Access? Enable the skill today and let us know what you think.
