Your Sandman Doppler has Amazon Alexa built-in.
Amazon Alexa is the intelligent cloud-based voice service that you can talk to on your Sandman Doppler. Speak to Alexa through your Sandman Doppler to play music, hear the news, check weather, and control your smart home. Alexa is in the cloud and is always getting smarter, delivering new capabilities to your device automatically.
To use Amazon Alexa, you’ll need to set up the Doppler. Download the Sandman Clocks app, and follow the in-app instructions or follow our guide here. Once set up, you can talk to Amazon Alexa on your Sandman Doppler.
Using Alexa on your Sandman Doppler is simple and hands-free – just ask, and Alexa will respond instantly through your Doppler. For example:
“Alexa, what do I have on my schedule today?”
“Alexa, how long is the drive to work?”
“Alexa, what is today’s weather?”
“Alexa, set an alarm for 7:00 am”
