Here's what we've been up to at iDevices...
Instinct™ is more than just a smart light switch. With the power of Alexa built-in, you have the ability to communicate in real-time with Instinct (think of a one-way intercom). Use this Alexa feature, called announcements, to keep your family up-to-date from anywhere. Here's a rundown of how to take advantage of this handy feature.
Works right out of the box
Take advantage of announcements as soon as your Instinct is set up. There are a several different phrases you can use to make an announcement.
Here are a few examples:
Use Instinct and other Alexa devices together
When you make an announcement, your message will repeat on every Instinct and Alexa device in your home, as long as they're connected to the same Amazon account.
That means you can announce from your Echo Dot in the living room to the Instinct in the bedroom: "Alexa, announce that it's time to wake up and get ready for school."
Make announcements from anywhere
Make announcements on-the-go through the Amazon Alexa app. You can type a message and have it read out by Alexa, or say it into your phone.
In the Amazon Alexa app, select the Communication icon > section the Announce icon > type your message, or select the microphone icon to record a message > select the arrow icon to send your announcement.
