Part of the joy of having a smart home is being able to control things with just the sound of your voice. And thankfully, the GigaSpire BLAST connects with Amazon Alexa. And setting it up is a simple process.

Let’s get started:

  1. To begin, tap the main menu at the top left of the dashboard screen.
  2. Scroll down to enable application – where you can select Amazon Alexa.
  3. Next, chose the system you are connected to, then authorize the application, and choose your language.

 Alexa will automatically begin to install.

Once Alexa is installed

  1. Go into your Alexa app, in the main menu from the top left, select Skills & Games.
  2. Search for a skill called; Calix Smart Router and enable this skill.

Once this skill has been enabled, you’ll be able to say things like:

“Alexa, ask my router what device is using the most bandwidth on my network?” OR

“Alexa, ask my router for the results of my last speed test”.

You can click on Settings and look for the Things to try with Alexa menu item.

If you don't have a GigaSpire BLAST router, and would like to enhance the performance and control of your WiFi network, add the service today!
