What is TP-Link Router Skill for Alexa?

TP-Link Router Skill is a kit of skills developed for TP-Link Wi-Fi products to work with Amazon Alexa. Thanks to this feature, you can control and customize your home network by giving simple voice commands to Alexa.

TP-Link Router Skill contains two kinds of skills, custom skill, and native skill. When using custom skills, you need to add the TP-Link prefix to voice commands. While using native skills, no prefix is needed.

Here we take one of the router skills as an example.

Custom Skill: Alexa, ask TP-Link to turn on the guest Wi-Fi.

Native Skill: Alexa, turn on the guest Wi-Fi.

Note: Currently Archer A7, Deco M5, Deco M9 Plus, Deco M4, and Deco P7 support TP-Link native skill. But don’t worry, more models will support this feature in future updates. (The firmware of Deco should be 1.4.X or above)

 

What functions can I control with TP-Link Router Skill?
