Connect Automower® to Amazon Alexa

When connected to Amazon Alexa, your Automower® robotic lawn mower becomes a natural part of your morning routine, your kids' after-school activities, your barbecue preparations and many other everyday schedules. It makes your Automower® robotic lawn mower a natural and fully integrated part of your home automation system.

What is required?

All Husqvarna Automower® models* with Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity can be controlled by your Amazon Alexa device. This makes your robotic mower a fully integrated part of your home automation system. Other Automower® models can also become part of your smart home when equipped with an Automower® Connect kit.
