  • Get an Alexa device: Head over to Amazon.com to browse all the Alexa options, from the Echo Spot to the Echo Show. You can choose one with just a speaker or one with a screen.

Next you’ll need to enable the BlueSmart Baby Tracker and Logbook skill. You can also do this by following the link at the top of the Works with Alexa page on our website. Just click ENABLE after following that link and follow Amazon's activation steps.


Lastly, you’ll need to link your BlueSmart account with the Alexa app. Then you’ll be all set to tell Alexa all the things you’d like to record in the BlueSmart app!
