How to connect Amazon Alexa
If you have two or more Smart Controller, please note that all Controllers need to be online in order for Alexa to work properly.
Amazon Alexa is being sold in several countries, including US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand (early this year, as Amazon announced). Our Amazon Alexa Skill is available in English in 4 locales (UK, US, CA, AU).
You can connect your Smart Controller to your Amazon Echo, Echo Dot or Echo Show and use voice commands via Alexa to control your blinds. All you need is to have the Amazon Alexa app in your device with an account set up and follow the steps below.
Access Skills & Games
Open the Amazon Alexa app on your device and tap on the menu located in the upper left corner. Then, tap on "Skills & Games".
Enable the Neo Smart Blinds skill
Using the search field, search for Neo Smart Blinds. Tap on the Neo Smart Blinds icon, then tap on "Enable to use" button.
Enter your login information for your Smart Controller
Provide your Neo Smart Blinds login information (email and password). Tap on "Allow" to proceed.
Authorize Amazon Alexa
Before accepting, make sure your Smart Controller is online (plugged into the wall charger and with pulsing cyan/blue-green LED). Tap on the Authorize button.
Go back to the Alexa app; it will prompt you to discover devices. If you don't see this option, tap on the left corner menu, then choose Devices.
To discover devices, use the voice command "Alexa, discover devices". Since Amazon Alexa doesn't support blinds, your Smart Controller rooms will be under the "Switches" section of the Alexa app.
Scenes in the Smart Controller app will be also imported to the Alexa app.
Amazon Alexa voice commands
Currently, only turn on (to open blinds) and turn off (to close blinds) commands are supported by Amazon Alexa. They can be used either with room names from the Smart Controller app or groups that you have created in the Amazon Alexa app with rooms assigned.
Alexa, turn on Kitchen
“Kitchen” is the name of a room in the Smart Controller app.
Alexa, turn on all blinds
“All blinds” is the name of a group in the Amazon Alexa app
Using Alexa to control all blinds
Creating a group in the Alexa app with all your Smart Controller rooms is easy and will allow you to control all your blinds with a single voice command. To create a group, follow the step-by-step instructions below.
Access the Devices page
Open the Amazon Alexa app, tap on the menu icon in the upper left corner, then select Smart Home.
Add a group
Tap on the plus button located on the top right corner of the app. On the bottom of the page, tap on "Add Group".
Name your group as "All blinds"
The name of the group is the keyword you are going to use in the voice command. In this example we chose "All blinds". Remember to always choose names that will sound natural to you. Tap on the next button to continue.
Select the all rooms and save
Select all Smart Controller rooms by tapping on it. Remeber, they will be all switches because Amazon Alexa doesn't support blinds yet. Tap on the Save button to save the group.
Use the name of the group in the voice command
Use the command “Turn off” to close all blinds and “Turn on” to open them.
Alexa, turn off all blinds.

Amazon Alexa Scenes
Scenes made in the Smart Controller app will be imported to the Alexa App when using the "Alexa, discover devices" command or by using the "Discover Scenes" button located at the bottom of the Scenes page.
