Description

The Amazon Alexa and FIBARO system work together to make FIBARO devices even more convenient to use. FIBARO and voice control by Amazon will help you to control lights, blinds, temperature, sensors, scenes and even more without lifting a finger. There won’t be a need to find your phone, use wall switches or any other remotes – just talk to Alexa.

Can I control multiple Home Center gateways?

Not at the same time. You can change which gateway is used in Alexa by activating it as default integration gateway at home.fibaro.com.
Alternatively, if you have multiple FIBARO ID accounts you can create Alexa Household Profile and switch between user profiles with FIBARO ID account assigned to each.
