Overview​

The Yardian skill in Alexa allows you to use voice commands to control your Yardian with some basic and commonly used functions. To get started, you need to have a Yardian account available. You can create your Yardian account through the Yardian App or Yardian Web App.

Once you create your account and log in to the Yardian App, you can create a yard Profile which includes all the information about your yard.

After connecting Alexa to Yardian, you can say commands like:
“Alexa, ask Yardian to water zone 1 for 2 minutes.”
“Alexa, ask Yardian to stop watering.”
