The NASH CoolSmart not only works with Alexa, but both the device and the Alexa skill it connects to have gone through rigorous testing by Underwriter Laboratories (UL). The testing standards for WWA are very stringent and we have made many improvements of our APP and backend system to comply with the standards.
With the “Works with Alexa” badge on a product, Amazon guarantees that the device works with the Alexa platform in a way that you get the best possible user experience.
What does all this mean for you? We have added a few extra voice features that are designed to make the Coolsmart even easier to use!
1. Simply telling the Coolsmart to increase/decrease fan speed without mentioning the speed level increases/decreases the fan speed to the next speed level. Example: "Alexa, increase the fan speed", or "Alexa, decrease the fan speed". Non-certified devices would reply ‘The value is out of range for fan" and not change the fan speed.
2. Asking "Alexa, what is fan speed set to?" results in Alexa responding with the current speed value of the Coolsmart. Non-certified devices would reply ‘That is not supported yet”
The NASH team is excited with this achievement and we will continue innovating!
