Nuki Skill for Amazon Alexa

Nuki » Support » Nuki Web » Nuki Skill for Amazon Alexa

The Nuki Skill for Amazon Alexa allows you to control your Nuki Smart Lock with Alexa.

Supported functionalities of the “Nuki Smart Home” skill

– Lock the door
– Unlock or open the door (PIN required)
– Ask if the door is locked

The name of the Nuki Smart Lock (e.g. “Front door”) is configured in the Amazon Alexa app. It must be included in all commands so that Alexa knows which Smart Home device should be locked.

The unlocking/opening of doors must be activated in the Alexa app at the respective door lock.

To use the “Nuki Smart Home” skill you need a Nuki Smart Lock, the Nuki Bridge and a free Nuki Web account.

Setup instructions

1. Activate Nuki Web in your Nuki app (Smart Lock Settings > Manage Smart Lock > Activate Nuki Web).

2. In the Amazon Alexa app select “Skills” in the menu and search for “Nuki Smart Home”.

3. Activate the “Nuki Smart Home” skill and allow access to your Smart Locks via Nuki Web.

4. In the “Nuki Smart Home” skill go to “Settings” > “Manage Smart Home Devices” and select the desired Nuki Smart Lock.

5. In the upper right corner choose “Edit” and “Edit Name”. This name must be included in all commands so that Alexa knows which Smart Home device should be locked. Here you can also activate the unlocking of the door and define a personal security code.
