It is possible to control Gladys devices with Alexa using Gladys Plus, our online gateway service.
Alexa is a unique integration, because Alexa works exclusively in the cloud. This means we have very limited control over what we can and can't do (unfortunately).
To become a Alexa partner, we had to:
- Pass some automated unit tests on Amazon side
- Pass a manual review from Amazon team
- Complete a Alexa Certification process
This is not a simple process, and therefore it's not realistic for all our users go through it on their side. It is a process that is intended for professionals & companies, hence why we offer this integration in Gladys Plus, exclusively.

Configure Gladys Plus
Gladys Plus needs to be fully configured before you can use the Google Home integration.
We recommended you follow the step you received by email to configure Gladys Plus.

Once you have successfully logged in to Gladys plus, you can configure Google Home!
First, open the Alexa app on your phone.
Go to "Skills & Games":
Click on the "Gladys Assistant" integration:
Activate the integration
You'll need to connect with your Gladys Plus account.
Alexa will now scan for all your devices on Gladys side.
For now, only:
- Lights (On/Off / Color / Brightness)
- Switch (On/Off)
Additionnal compatibilities will be added on request. Don't hesitate to send us your feature requests on the forum.
