Save Sensor Name

An alternate way of linking your sensor to your Alexa device is to manually save the sensor Id. Alexa typically does not understand single letters well so the procedure above is preferred. If you are using this method say each letter distinctly with a slight pause between letters. You may also use the phonetic alphabet to improve Alexa's accuracy. If you have difficulty with this contact us and we can link the account for you.

"Alexa tell Smart Dry  my sensor is A 1 B 2 C 3"

"Alexa tell Smart Dry my sensor name is A 1 B 2 C 3"
