Using Alexa and Harmony Together

If you've already connected your Logitech Harmony account, you should see your Harmony Hub appear on your Things tab and be able to manually set and run Activities from there.

You can create one or more Routines that contain your Harmony activities and then run these Routines with Alexa.  So for example, you could create a Routine called "TV" that runs the "Start ..." action for a specific Harmony Activity.

To connect your Alexa account, the best way to do is through the Alexa app.  Here are some steps:
 
  • Open your your Alexa app, then go to the Smart Home section and click the "Get More Smart Home Skills" button. Then look for the Yonomi skill and click enable and provide Yonomi credentials to login.
  • Once you've done that and linked the two again, try running discovery on your Echo (Say "Alexa, find my devices", or from the Alexa app, click the "Find my devices" button below your Smart Home devices list) and see if your Yonomi Routines show up as Devices in the Smart Home Devices list in the Smart Home section of the Alexa app.

  • 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}".
