What is the Robonect lawn mower Alexa skill?

Robonect lawn mower Alexa skill allows you to control a robotic lawn mower equipped with a Robonect module by Fabian Harder.

Because of a user request, I have enhanced the skill to also be able to communicate with Husqvarna's/Gardena's Smart System robotic lawn mowers (i.e. the "smart" models). This feature is currently in beta-mode, please contact me if you encounter any problems.

Why do I have to register here in order to use it?

Since everybody wants to control their own robotic lawn mower through their own Alexa device, their Robonect-URL (or Husqvarna/Gardena credentials) has to be linked to their Alexa-ID. The Alexa skill will then determine the user's Robonect-URL (or Husqvarna/Gardena credentials) to control matching its own Alexa-ID.

Are there any costs for using the Robonect lawn mower Alexa skill?

No. Both, the registration as well as the use of the Robonect lawn mower Alexa skill are free. However, development has been quite a bit of work and support still is. I do NOT get paid by either Gardena/Husqvarna or the developers of the Robonect module, I am happy about any voluntary contributions via PayPal.

What will happen to my data?

The Robonect-URL (or Husqvarna/Gardena credentials) you enter will be stored in a database using AES encryption and will only be used for the Robonect lawn mower Alexa skill.

Should you want to update or remove your data, just submit this form again with an updated Robonect-URL (or Husqvarna/Gardena credentials) or leave the Robonect-URL field (or Husqvarna/Gardena credential fields) empty to delete your data.
