Yardian and Amazon Alexa

How to Use Amazon Alexa to Control Yardian

The Yardian Skill in the Amazon Alexa app allows you to use voice commands to control your Yardian/Yardian Pro smart sprinkler controller. Amazon Alexa voice assistant supports several basic and commonly used functions for controlling the Yardian – you can:

  • Run single or multiple zones in sequence
  • Stop (skip) a current watering task
  • Ask about the next watering task
  • Ask about the zone name

To get started, you need to have a Yardian account. You can create your Yardian account through the Yardian app or the Yardian web app. Once you create your account and log in to the Yardian app, you can add a device and enable zones connected to sprinkler valves.

Please follow the instructions to learn how to link the Yardian Skill and set up the Amazon Echo smart spreaker in the Alexa app.
