What is Command?
Command lets you control your Wi-Fi network with your voice using Amazon Alexa and the HomePass skill. It’s never been easier—or quicker—to manage your home’s WiFi.
What can I control using my voice?
Using only your voice you will be able to check your Internet's speed with an ISP speed test, apply a device freeze to a single device or all devices belonging to a family member until the end of the day, check which pod a device is connected to. Using Command, you can also temporarily pause the Internet for a device, person or even the entire family.

HomePass 2.0 app (When available) is needed to manage Command through mobile. During MVP, implementation is strictly activated through the Alexa Skill.

Can I accidentally Freeze my smart home devices when freezing all devices?
No. Freezing "all devices": will only freeze devices assigned to people.
Why do I need to assign or name devices?
If you have multiple devices that are unassigned that also has the same name, Command will not be able to complete the request and provide an error.
Can anyone Freeze or Unfreeze devices? Is Alexa authenticating the user requesting the Command action?
Yes. During the initial availability of Command, Alexa is not authenticating the user making the request. This means you kids will be able to unfreeze themselves through Alexa.
