To use the new AnyMote Skill for Alexa, simply run the latest version of your AnyMote app for iOS or Android, visit Settings -> Amazon Echo and do the simple pairing process.

1. Once paired, to use the skill, say the exact button/remote names as you have them in the app. For example:
Alexa, tell AnyMote to MUTE my TV
Using the [to] and [my] key separators greatly increase Alexa's ability to understand your commands.

2. AnyMote is smart - it remembers the last remote you used, so that you don't have to say its name again. For example:
Alexa, tell AnyMote to CHANNEL UP
Using this format, the CHANNEL UP command will go to your last used remote, so that you don't have to repeat "on my TV" when you're zapping.

3. If you want to say a series of commands, try starting a continuous session with [Open AnyMote]. For example:
Alexa, open AnyMote
  - POWER ON my TV
  - NETFLIX
  - OK
  - MOVE DOWN
  - PLAY


4. You can repeat commands easily, simply by telling AnyMote how many times you want a command sent. For example:
Alexa, tell AnyMote to VOLUME UP 5 TIMES

5. To switch to a specific channel, you can just tell AnyMote the channel number and it will press the appropriate digits. For example:
Alexa, tell AnyMote to CHANNEL ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY TWO
Please note that saying "ONE TWENTY TWO" when you mean 122 won't work, and sub-channels in the format 1-22 or 1.22 are not yet supported.

6. You can execute macros easily, just by saying [execute] and the macro name. For example:
Alexa, tell AnyMote to execute MOVIE MODE

7. If you're tired of having the AnyMote skill confirm every successful command, you can now say:
Alexa, open AnyMote
disable long replies
To undo that, just say enable long replies
