Alexa

Temperature:

Alexa, what is the temperature of [Device Name]?

Alexa, tell me the temperature of [Device Name].

Alexa, temperature of [Device Name].

[Device Name] refers to the name of the device.

Humidity:

Method 1:

Alexa, ask SwitchBot to tell me the humidity of [Device Name].

[Device Name] refers to the name of the device.

Method 2:

First, invoke the custom skill with the voice command:

  • Alexa, open SwitchBot.
  • Alexa, active SwitchBot.

Then, ask Alexa about the humidity. Voice commands:

  • Alexa, what is the humidity of [Device Name]?
  • Alexa, tell me the humidity of [Device Name].
  • Alexa, humidity of [Device Name].

[Device Name] refers to the name of the device.

Note:

1. Due to Alexa's specifications, if the device name does not include the keyword "Meter," the voice command may not be recognized correctly. Good examples: Study Room Meter, Office Meter.

2. If there are multiple Meter devices linked to your SwitchBot account, asking Alexa for the humidity may result in a response based on the data from the first paired thermometer/hygrometer device. We are currently negotiating with Alexa to resolve this issue and ask for your patience and understanding until improvements are made.

Google Assistant

    Hello - thank you for this article, it was very helpful in getting Alexa and the Switchbot temperature/humidity sensor 'connected'.  Could you please elaborate on how to get the humidity to be query-able?  I see you menteiond that it needs a custom skill.  More detail on that please?  Thansk!  Not afriad to get my hands dirty.....just need a littler direction.

    Could you please elaborate on how to get the humidity to be seen or for Alexa to tell me the humidity as I’m unable to get this to work?
