After successful integration with Alexa, user can talk to Echo locally to carry out some commands. To achieve this, user needs a Home8 account and has access to at least one set of Home8 system. Begin by linking Home8 account using the Alexa App. If you have more than one system (also reference as location, or OPU/Shuttle) and more than one controllable devices such as garage door opener, switch, and door lock, you need to assign an “Echo Name” for each device on Home8 App (Home8 App – Side Menu- Amazon Echo). Name for a device of the same type has to be unique. For example, “Home” is assigned to Location1. Location2 cannot be assigned “Home” again. User needs to select an Echo Name for each supported device first before using the commands on Echo. The same name can be assigned to different types of devices. There are 10 predefined names for users to choose from for each type of device. Getting started: Use the following commands to learn how to control home8. The commands will prompt Echo to ask user to say their command directly or say help for more information. It will also teach user to ask how to control the system, how to control switches, garage door openers, locks and how to check device or system status. • “Alexa, open home8” • “Help” (after saying “Alexa, open home8”) • "Alexa, ask home8, how to control my system" • "Alexa, ask home8, how to control my device" • "Alexa, ask home8, how to bind devices" • “Alexa, ask home8, how to check status” Arm / Arm in Stay Mode / Disarm: Use the following commands to arm, arm in stay mode, or disarm home8 system.
