Hey Alexa, Meet Yonomi


It’s almost as monumental as when Harry met Sally or when Luke met his father. The most powerful connected home app meets the most powerful voice command assistant. Your connected home experience didn’t just go to the next level, it went to the stratosphere!  

Yonomi now plays well with Amazon Echo

Ask Alexa to run your Routines and control any of your Devices. Alexa becomes the ultimate multi-tasker thanks to Yonomi managing several devices at once.

Alexa, turn on Kids’ Bedtime

The possibilities are endless…


Alexa can also manage certain individual devices you have set up in Yonomi outside of your Routines.

  • Alexa, turn on/turn off Sonos (play/pauses whatever music is cued)

  • Alexa, turn on Apple TV (taps into Logitech Harmony)

  • Alexa, turn on WeMo Mr. Coffee

  • Alexa, turn on/off or set Quirky Aros

Here’s how to setup the Yonomi skill in the Alexa app:

  3. Tap “Enable Skill” and then sign into your Yonomi account

  4. Say “Alexa, discover devices” or tap “Discover devices” within the Smart Home tab of the Alexa app.

Along with the Amazon Echo, Yonomi plays well with over 60 of the most popular devices. They no longer have to run independently in multiple apps.  An action taken with one device, can trigger a sequence of actions of your other devices, making your connected home simpler and more comfortable.

If you do not have Yonomi yet, get started. Simply download the free Yonomi app from Google Play or the App Store. Yonomi will take you through the setup process to discover all your devices and help you connect them.
