Getting Started with Teem & Alexa for Business
We’d like you to meet our new friend, Alexa. With the help of Alexa for Business, you don’t need a phone or laptop to take control of your meetings. All you need to do is speak up. Follow these three main steps to start benefiting from the Teem + Alexa for Business solution.
Setup Alexa for Business
The first thing you need to do is setup Alexa for Business (A4B) so that you can connect Alexa-enabled devices to Teem-connected spaces. Follow the steps here to do just that. Once you’ve setup your device with A4B, you’re ready to link the Teem skill.
Link the Teem Skill
1. Create a Teem user. We recommend naming the user account something like “Alexa Service,” but you can name it whatever works best for you.
2. Then, link the Teem skill to your Teem account:
a. Be sure you’re logged into the Teem platform as the new service account (the “Alexa Service” account).
b. Back in A4B, click “Link Skill” when viewing the Teem skill.
c. Teem will then automatically authenticate the skill using the account you're logged in as.
3. Within your A4B account, add the Teem skill to your appropriate skill groups.
Note: Make sure you’re logged into the Teem platform as that group user when linking the Teem skill. That way the skill will not be linked to your personal Teem account.
Configure Rooms in A4B to Work with Teem
Within A4B, you will create an entity called a “Room.” Append the end of your room names with an underscore and the numeric Teem room ID so that Teem knows which room it's connected to.
- Room name in the office = Death Star
- Teem ID = 123456
- Room name in A4B = Death Star_123456
To configure rooms in A4B to work with Teem, you will need your numeric Teem room ID which can be found at the end of your URL when you are at the room level in App.Teem.com.
You can confirm which Teem room an Alexa-enabled device is connected to, by saying, “Alexa, ask Teem what room this is.” The device will reply with the room name and Teem ID.
Note on wifi specifications: The Alexa-enabled device requires a pre-shared key for wireless networking and does not currently support RADIUS or any wireless access that requires authentication via a web browser.
