Connecting to AlexaUpdated 8 months ago

To link your AC to Alexa, first make sure your AC is connected to the Windmill app and you’ve downloaded the Alexa app. Then follow these steps in the Alexa app. (Your phone must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your AC, and for best results your AC should be on.)

  1. Tap More
  2. Tap Skills & Games
  3. Type “Windmill-AC” in the search bar
  4. Tap Windmill-AC
  5. Tap ENABLE TO USE
  6. Type your Windmill email and password, and then tap Login
  7. After a moment, your Windmill account should link to Alexa. Then tap Next
  8. Alexa will automatically search for any Windmill ACs connected to the Windmill app and then add them to Alexa. This may take several moments. Once Alexa finds your AC(s), tap Next. (Note: Alexa may show a screen saying that it could not find the AC even when it has found it. If you see this screen, exit out of it and you may see that the AC has in fact been found. If you're not sure, tap Devices, then drag the top tiles to the left and then tap All Devices to see if your Windmill AC appears. If you don't see it, follow the steps below for "If you have enabled the Windmill-AC skill in Alexa, but you don’t see your AC." If that still doesn't work, disable the Windmill-AC skill using the steps at the bottom of this article and start over.)
  9. You may assign your AC(s) to a room or group, or tap Skip
  10. Tap Continue and then Done
  11. You’re all set!

If you have enabled the Windmill-AC skill in Alexa, but you don’t see your AC, try the following steps:

  4. Tap Wi-Fi
  5. Tap Discover Devices
  6. Alexa will now search for any ACs connected to the Windmill app and add them to Alexa. This may take several moments. Once Alexa has found your Windmill AC, tap Set Up Device
  7. You may assign your AC(s) to a room or group, or tap Skip
  8. Tap Continue and then Done
  9. You’re all set! If you like, tap View to view Alexa’s AC controls.
