Controlling your SMART+ Lights with Amazon Echo Plus

The Amazon Alexa app allows you to control your lights by changing colors, dimming, and grouping lights for easier control. Before you begin, make sure your Amazon Echo Plus and SMART+ lights are set up within the Amazon Alexa app. Please note the color features of your bulb, as the available options will depend on the specific capabilities of the light bulb.

Dimming your Lights

You can simply say "Alexa, set [Name of single or group of lights] to 50%" to dim the brightness of an individual bulb or group, or you can do this through the Amazon Alexa app.
  1. In the Alex app, select the Menu > Smart Home
  2. Select a device you’d like to control
  3. Upon selecting your individual device, you will see a slider indicating the brightness level. Adjust the slider until your desired brightness is reached.

Changing the Color of your Lights

You can simply say "Alexa, set [Name of single or group of lights] to red" to set the color of an individual bulb or group, or you can do this through the Amazon Alexa app.
  1. In the Alex app, select the Menu > Smart Home
  2. Select a device you’d like to control
  3. Upon selecting your individual device, you will see a button labeled Set Color right under the Brightness Level bar. Tap this button to open available color options.
  4. Select from the list of available colors to change your lights.

Grouping your Lights

Grouping your lights makes it easy to control multiple lights at the same time, rather than individually. You can then use Alexa to control a group of lights through voice, or use the Alexa app through your phone.
  1. In the Alex app, select the Menu > Smart Home
  2. Tap the Groups tab and then Add Group to create a new group of lights and accessories.
  3. Give your Group a Name. This will also be used when asking Alexa to control a group of lights. Hit Next.
  4. Under Devices, select which devices you’d like to include in this group and then select Save to create your new group.
