Avoid installing Instinct behind furniture or appliances that may make it difficult for Alexa to hear your commands. Instinct is intended to be used in a dry, indoor location. Do not install Instinct in wet or humid locations such as next to a sink or outdoors.
Instinct can be installed in a bathroom, just like a standard light switch. Ensure it's not close to any water source. When installing Instinct in a bathroom, abide by all applicable local and state building regulations.
Here are a few common uses for Instinct by room:
Instinct is the perfect solution for busy morning routines. Just ask Alexa for your news briefing, traffic and weather updates to stay on top of your day.
While cooking, Alexa can set timers, find replacements for common ingredients, help with measurements, and suggest new recipes. Add items to your shopping list or order them with your voice. Stream music while you cook or eat for a fun and relaxing kitchen experience.
With Instinct in an entryway, you have the ability to turn on your entire home with a single command the moment you walk through the front door. You can also get last minute traffic and weather updates on the way out.
You have the power to schedule lighting and other smart home accessories, or set them to adjust automatically when you leave or arrive home, creating energy efficiency and added security.
Create a bedtime routine that dims lighting, adjusts the thermostat, and has Alexa play relaxing music.
Use your voice to turn off lights left on in the living room or basement from the comfort of your bed.
