Do I need a smart home for Slide to work?
It is not necessary to own other Smart home devices, as Slide functions independently alongside the Slide app. Because Slide works directly with WiFi, no additional gateways are required. However, we are adding support for both Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa next quarter, which will enable you to use Slide together with your own smart home devices. We also have an Open API and support for both Home Assistant and Homey.
