Using the BlueSmart Skill

After installing the BlueSmart Baby Tracker and Logbook skill (here) and linking it to your BlueSmart account, you can go ahead and start talking to Alexa. To use the BlueSmart Skill, Alexa has to know that your commands relate to it, so be sure to start off your initial commands with any of the following:

 

- Alexa, tell BlueSmart to...
- Alexa, ask BlueSmart to...
- Alexa, use BlueSmart to...

Alexa Utterances

Utterances are phrases that make Alexa complete an action you want.

 

The whole purpose of this skill is to make baby tracking as hands-free as possible. Whether you can't reach your phone because your baby is latched and doesn't want to move, or your hands are full changing a diaper, our Alexa Skill will only be an utterance away.

If you only have one baby registered to your BlueSmart account, you need to say the baby’s name. However, if you have more than one baby registered, you will need to tell Alexa which baby you are referring to. But don't worry, if you forget to specify the baby's name, Alexa will ask you to provide it.

 

The examples below use the baby name “Aiden” to tell Alexa which baby your command refers to.

If you have any suggestions for the skill, please email us at support@bluesmartmia.com!

Things You Can Say

Below is a table of capabilities the Alexa Skill has, and how to use them. When Alexa registers these actions they will send directly to your BlueSmart mobile app!

 

NOTE: these are not the only way to phrase actions, this is only a sample of all the ways you can say things. For a full list of utterances, go here.
