CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Husqvarna is the leader in robotic mowers and has been making robotic mowers for over 25 years. As part of developing new solutions and simplifying lawn care, Husqvarna Automower — the company’s robotic mower — is now compatible with Amazon Alexa. The first version is available in English for the many thousands of connected Husqvarna robotic mowers in gardens and parks across the world today.

“Our customers rightly expect Husqvarna products to be in the forefront and work with the mobile infrastructure and technical possibilities of today, giving them multiple and ever more convenient ways of interacting with our products,” says Sascha Menges, president Husqvarna Division.

With the integration of Amazon Alexa, Husqvarna Automower owners can now control their robotic mower by asking Alexa to start, park, and pause the robotic mower, as well as resume sessions. It’s also possible to ask Alexa to run Automower for a set number of hours and ask it what Automower is doing, providing owners with additional ways of interacting with their robotic mower - beyond the existing mobile applications.

Typical commands for Automower via Alexa are:

  • Alexa, ask Automower to start
  • Alexa, ask Automower to park
  • Alexa, ask Automower to stop
  • Alexa, ask Automower what it's doing
