FireBoard works with the Google Assistant, available on iPhone, Google Home and most Android phones. Now All you have to say is “OK GOOGLE, TALK TO FIREBOARD”

Once you’re talking to FireBoard, you can say any of the items below:
FireBoard works with all Amazon Alexa enabled devices. Find and enable the FireBoard Alexa Skill in the Alexa Skill Store. Sign in with your FireBoard account through the Alexa App. Once you are linked, you’re ready to command Alexa. Say “ ALEXA, ASK FIREBOARD WHAT IS THE CURRENT TEMPERATURE?”
