How to configure Alexa with Gladys Assistant

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.
