You can use Alexa voice commands to perform actions on your Nucleus devices, like placing calls and dimming the screen. These commands and the Nucleus skill will only work on a Nucleus device; you won’t be able to use an Echo or Echo Dot to issue commands to a Nucleus device, for example.
Enable the Alexa skill for Nucleus
To start using this feature, ensure you’re logged into Alexa on your Nucleus. Then have Alexa add the Nucleus skill:
“Alexa, enable the Nucleus skill.”
If any of your versions are older, reboot. This will force your Nucleus to look for the latest updates immediately. If you have any questions or want to let us know how the feature is working for you, you can always reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Use commands to initiate calls
With the skill enabled, you can initiate calls to individual Nucleus devices and the mobile app. If you have a device named Kitchen, for example, saying
“Alexa, tell Nucleus to call Kitchen”
will initiate a video call with that device. Video calls are the default, but if you’d like an audio call, you can say
“Alexa, tell Nucleus to audio call Kitchen”
“Alexa, tell Nucleus to call Kitchen audio only”
For all commands to control Nucleus, make sure you include “tell Nucleus.” Alexa won’t know what to do with the command otherwise.
Use commands to get help
You can also ask for help to see what the skill supports. We’ll be adding capabilities when we can, so
“Alexa, tell Nucleus to ask for help”
will offer updated information over time.
Feel free to send any feedback to email@example.com. We want to make sure our Alexa skill is effective and easy to use, so please let us know how we’re doing. Thanks!
