Move over Nexx Home Custom Skill and make way for Nexx Smart Home Skill.
Looking to get the most out of Nexx Home using your Amazon Echo, Amazon Fire TV, and other Alexa-enabled devices? Nexx Home now boasts “Works With Alexa” integration featuring Nexx Home Skill.
What is Nexx Home Skill?
The Nexx Smart Home Skill gives you total control over your Nexx devices, quickly and easily, just by asking Alexa.
But wait a minute… didn’t Nexx Home work with Alexa before?
Yes, but it required a Custom Skill and few extra pesky words.
- OLD Custom Skill: “Alexa, ask Nexx Home to open the garage.”
- NEW Nexx Smart Home Skill: “Alexa, open the garage.”
Much better, right?
Home automation, simplified, personalized
Amazon Alexa lives in the cloud and is always getting smarter, delivering new capabilities to your device automatically. The more you use Alexa, the more Alexa adapts to your speech patterns, vocabulary, and preferences, with new features continually being added. Ask Alexa to answer questions, hear the news, get weather and traffic reports, control your smart home, and more.
What can Smart Home Skills help you do?
Smart Home Skills add new capabilities that allow you to create a more personalized experience with your Amazon Echo, Amazon Fire TV, and other Alexa-enabled devices. Skills let you receive flash briefings, order food, request a ride, track your fitness, and more.
With full Works with Alexa integration, Nexx Smart Home now delivers better responsiveness, reliability, and functionality, helping ensure you have the best smart home experience possible.
