How do I set up my Sensi thermostat to work with Amazon Alexa?

The Sensi Wi-Fi Programmable Thermostat can be directly controlled by Amazon Echo, Tap, and Dot through the Amazon Alexa app.

To get started:

  1. Download the Sensi app, create a Sensi account, and install your Sensi thermostat through the Sensi app. (You can skip this step if you are already a registered Sensi customer.) Note: you must have a registered Sensi account to set up your thermostat to work with Amazon Alexa services.

  2. Set up your Alexa-enabled device and download the Amazon Alexa app.

To directly control your Sensi thermostat with Amazon Alexa:

Setting up Sensi with Alexa Setting up Sensi with Alexa

  1. In the Amazon Alexa app, under the main menu, select Smart Home
  2. Under the Your Smart Home Skills section, select Get More Smart Home Skills
  3. Find Sensi WiFi Thermostat and select Enable
  4. Enter your Sensi email and password and tap Sign In (Be sure to not have extra spaces before or after your email or password)
  5. After you see confirmation that Alexa has been linked with your Sensi thermostat, tap the close button in the upper right corner
  6. Under the Devices section, select Discover devices OR say, “Alexa, discover new devices.” The app will show a progress bar while Alexa is looking for devices. Wait for the “Discovery Complete” message.
  7. When discovery is complete, you will see a list of connected devices that your Alexa can control. You should now see your Sensi thermostat in this list, and will be able to interact verbally with your Sensi thermostat. Please see note below.

*NOTE: when Alexa finds your Sensi thermostat, the Alexa app will display the thermostat by the name you have previously given your Sensi thermostat. When giving commands to your Sensi thermostat through Alexa, you will need to remember the name you’ve given your thermostat. If you want to change the name of your thermostat, you will need to do this in your Sensi app.

With your Sensi thermostat connected to your Amazon device, you can control your thermostat verbally with these commands.
