How to connect Yonomi and Amazon Alexa

Yonomi and Alexa make a powerful combination and we'd love to help get your accounts connected!

We used to suggest users connect their Yonomi and Alexa accounts via the Yonomi app, but now recommend that you set up your account through the Alexa app.

Here are some instructions:
  • Open your your Alexa app, then go to the Smart Home section and search for the "Yonomi" skill.  Once you've found it click the Enable button to start the connection process.

  • Next, provide your Yonomi credentials to complete the login process.

  • Once you've done that and linked the two again, try running discovery on your Echo (Say "Alexa, find my devices"). Your Yonomi Routines show up as Devices in the Smart Home Devices list in the Smart Home section of the Alexa app.  Alternatively you can click the "Discover Devices" link at the bottomof the "Your Devices" list to run discovery.

  • If they do, then you're all set. We treat Alexa as another client for Yonomi, so there are no Triggers or Actions to add to your Yonomi Routines. You can execute your Yonomi Routines by saying "Alexa, Turn on {Routine Name}". 
  • Anytime you create a new Routine in Yonomi, or rename an existing one, make sure to re-run discovery on your Echo device ("Alexa, find my devices") to sync your latest Yonomi Routines with Alexa.
