How to connect Dser 23T to Amazon Alexa
Here's how to link up the Dser 23T robot vacuum to Amazon's smart assistant
The Dser RoboGeek 23T is a budget smart vacuum designed to vacuum rugs and hard wood floors that can work with Amazon's smart assistant Alexa. While the company doesn't promise to connect to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, the two more prominent smart home smart assistants, we were able during our tests to connect the robot vacuum to Amazon's A.I. — but it took a little sleuthing, and a bit of maneuvering around the app.
Alexa does not have a Dser Alexa Skill that connects to the 23T. You're going to have to use an intermediary app called Tuya Smart. This app acts like a middle man to link many smart home devices together. And you're correct in thinking that nowhere on the Dser web site, nor on any of the Amazon listings, does it mention using the TuyaSmart app. We found this through a search, which led us to a video on how to create this connection.

From there, you can ask Alexa to start the 23T. We got this up and running, but be warned we did have some trouble with it working every time. We wouldn't consider the Dser 23T to be a perfect smart device, but it will connect with some effort.
