5) It will show up the few options available for the Harmony Hub. I swiped to the middle option – Start Activity. Tap on the Activity, which will bring up the available Activities with this device.
6) Choose the Activity you would like to start. Here I chose the Watch a Movie option.
7) Save the new routine. Then I would suggest creating a new routine for switching off the same activity (Use the same name with the word ‘off’ after it). This will then allow you to both turn on and off a certain device through Alexa.
Screen below shows the third option with my Harmony Hub i.e. End Activity.
8) Once the routines are setup, then you need to go to the Amazon Alexa App to discover the various devices. This needs to be done each time new Routines are added to Yonomi, so they can become available to Alexa.
Now Alexa will be able to turn the various things on or off through the Logitech Harmony Hub. I thought the whole process would be fairly complicated and fraught with issues, but surprisingly it turned out not to be difficult and worked without any glitches – I suppose it is knowing how to use it that puts many people off using it. But once you do, you will have a much smarter/controllable home.
