ThevoSmart – The Alexa-Skill

Introducing ThevoSmart, a free skill for your Amazon voice assistant. The skill gives you the ability to easily check on the status of your family member in need of care by voice command. It's an easy way to quickly feel a bit safer when looking at your smartphone might be out of the question.

To use the Skill, you need a ThevoSmart sensor pad and a user account that you link to the Skill - and it's ready to go.

Query the status of one or all connected persons

To have the current status announced to you, say for example:

"Alexa, ask ThevoSmart how is grandma"*.

If you manage multiple ThevoSmart sensor records, you can have the status of all care profiles announced to you with just one voice command. To do this, say:

"Alexa, ask ThevoSmart, how is the status of my care".

Important: This skill is not an emergency call system and does not send notifications. It only reflects the status of the care recipient linked to your ThevoSmart system when you activate the skill and actively request the status via their voice assistant.

*enter the name of the person in need of care here, as you entered it in the field "Nickname" in the care profile. If you do not use the optional field, use the name from the "Name" field.

Possible questions:

  • - Alexa, ask ThevoSmart, how is grandma?

  • - Alexa, ask ThevoSmart, in what state is grandma?

  • - Alexa, ask ThevoSmart, how is the status of my care?
