Can we develop an Alexa Skill for Smoke Detector?

Hi ,

Could you please confirm whether we can develop an Alexa Skill for Smoke Detector or not.

If possible, can you please give some pointers on how to start with like, interfaces or directives.


Using Alexa Guard, one can get notification to the respective Alexa App if smoke Detector gives an Alarm. Can you please help us how can we proceed further if we have a smoke detector and if we want to develop an Alexa skill

what are the smoke detectors that are compatible with Alexa?


Regards,

Sowmya

There's no specific interface for smoke detectors so smart home skills won't be a suitable fit at this time - you can check out more info on the smart home skill API here:

I believe Alexa Guard allows Alexa-enabled devices to track the sound of smoke alarms, but there isn't a specific smart home interface for smoke detectors.
