Where to start with voice-controlled devices


Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home – the tech that creates a hub for managing your smart home 

Voice-controlled devices

Having a home hub system like Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home means you can connect all your smart tech devices and control them all with just your voice – this includes smart lights, heating and even plugs. It's always ready, hands-free and super fast.

Alexa is the smart assistant inside an Amazon Echo Dot, while Google Home has the Google Assistant. It's easy to set up both to help you in your smart home. You can ask them to play music, read the news, set alarms, answer questions, check sports scores and even review your energy account. You'll need to set up our Alexa skill to manage your EDF Energy account. 

With our EDF Energy Alexa skill you can:

Submit meter read

Once you’ve set up your Household Profiles through a series of simple, guided steps, acquiring the EDF Energy Alexa skill will help you get the most from your energy account. It connects directly to your MyAccount to give you accurate answers on your energy usage. This should make it easier to stay in control of your bills.
