How to connect your SpaNet™ controller to Amazon Alexa™?

Linking your spa to Amazon Alexa™ is pretty straightforward. To help you do this, you may follow the guide below.

This guide assumes your Alexa device is powered on, connected to your home WiFi network and already linked to your Amazon Alexa™ account.

Step 1: Link your Amazon Alexa™ account to SmartLink™ app

Open the SmartLink™ app, then from the temperature dashboard page tap the “Settings” icon in the bottom right corner of your screen. Next, scroll to the bottom of the Settings list and tap the Amazon Alexa™ option. A prompt will appear asking your permission to Sign In to your Amazon account. To confirm your acceptance and complete the linking process, enter your login details and tap on “Sign In”.

Step 2: Open the Amazon Alexa™ application

Open your Amazon Alexa™ application using your smart device, then navigate to “Skills & Games” through the menu bar located in the top left or bottom right corner of your screen (depending on device). In the search bar, type “My Spa Pool” to search for the skill, then tap on it to select.

Step 3: Link your Amazon Alexa™ app to MySpaPool™ skill

The next screen allows you to enable the skill and link it to your Amazon Alexa™ account. To do this, simply tap on “Enable to use” or “Launch” (depending on device). A prompt will appear to complete the skill linking, simply tap on “Allow”. Now that you’ve successfully linked the two, the final step is to link your spa to the My Spa Pool voice control skill.

Step 4: Link your spa to MySpaPool™ skill

Once the account has been linked, the final step is to choose which spa to issue commands to. Using either the Amazon Alexa™ app or an Alexa™ device, start by saying, “Alexa... ask my spa pool… list my spa”.

Alexa will list the name(s) of any spa setup on your SmartLink™ app. To complete the setup, say the number of the spa you wish to link to the voice control skill. Note: Please say the spa number and not the spa name for Alexa™ to recognise your selection. On most installs you will say “1”.

Start giving commands

Now the setup is complete, you can start issuing vocal commands to your spa. For example, you can say “Hey Alexa... ask my spa pool... turn pumps on”.

Change Spas: In the case of owning multiple spas or dual-zone spas, if you want to change the spa the voice control links to, simply issue the “List my spa” command again and select a different spa number.
