Create a Routine

Creating a routine in Alexa allows you to do a couple powerful things, including:

  • Creating your own custom voice commands. For example, "Alexa, get the car ready".
  • Automating your Tesla using schedules. For example, every weekday at 7AM you can start the climate.

How to create a routine

  1. Open the Alexa app and tap More at the bottom.
  2. Tap Routines > + > When this happens > Voice.
  3. Enter any phrase you'd like, like "Get the car ready" and tap Next.
  4. Tap Add action > Custom.
  5. Enter "Ask Tessie Control to start climate" (or any command you want) and tap Next.
  6. Tap Choose Device, select an option, then tap Save.

You're done! You can now say  "Alexa, get the car ready" (or whatever phrase you entered in step 3.)
