If you haven’t read the Alexa documentation, here’s a quick overview:
First, you need to enable proactive events. To enable this feature, you must send a message to an event gateway for the skill. If you’ve enabled proactive events but haven’t yet tested them, make sure to match the skill’s availability by specifying its target endpoint, region, and locale. The target region should be the same as the language of your Amazon echo devices. To set proactive events, you’ll need to specify which regions and languages are supported.
You’ll also need a voice PIN. This PIN will allow Alexa to respond to commands. Depending on what you ask her to do, you can set primary controls like the tilt of the device or position. The tilt can be set to the group-level as well as at the device level. If you want Alexa to open the blinds, for example, you can say “open the curtains” or “close the door.” You can also set primary controls to “night” or “sport”.
Alternatively, you can try creating an Alexa skills using Voiceflow. Voiceflow is a tool that makes conversational logic easy to build. It lets you easily add variables, expression statements, and conditions without writing a single line of code. With Voiceflow, you can also prototype your Alexa skill on the device itself and share links to your project in the browser. This allows you to make sure that the skill is working. You can also test your skills on other Alexa devices by sharing the URL to your test projects on the web duysnews .
