This module extends the capabilities of the Yombo Gateway by adding support for Amazon Alexa. This allows control of selected devices though authorized Alexa devices and applications.


  • An Alexa enabled device or software.
  • Setup DNS.
  • Install the Amazon Alexa module.


Be sure to follow both steps to complete the installation:

  1. Before installing the module, open the Alexa app and add the Yombo skill. You will need to enter your Yombo credentials to pair your Alexa devices to your Yombo account.
  2. After the module has been marked to be installed, restart the gateway. This will download and install the module.
