How to trigger a Vera Scene with Alexa

Last Updated: Oct 04, 2018 08:31AM PDT


Do you have a scene you use every day? Good News! You can use Alexa to turn on that Scene.

This guide will teach you:

  • Discover Scenes
  • Turn on Scenes using Alexa

Discover Scenes

Amazon's Scene tab can store your existing Scenes. You have to "discover" Scenes in order for them to be added to the collection.

How to add Scenes to the collection:
  1. Go to the Alexa App
  2. Click on the Menu button

  1. Select Smart Home

  1. Click Scenes
  2. Click Discover

Alexa will now scan your network for any Scenes on your Vera unit; they will automatically be added to the Scenes tab. 
Note:For the Scenes to be discovered, Alexa Skill needs to be installed on your Vera device. Also, the Scenes need to be added to the list of controllable devices. You can learn how to do this with our Alexa User Guide


How to turn on Scenes using Alexa:

In your Amazon Scenes tab, all Vera Scenes will be listed by name. If you signal Alexa and then say a Scene name, the Scene will be executed.

For example, for a Scene called "Outside Lights" that turns on and off the outside lights, you can say "Alexa, turn on Outside Lights," and the Scene will be triggered. 
Note: If you have Scenes that work in multiple rooms, adjust the command to include the name of the room. Example: "Alexa, turn on Bedroom Thermostat"
