Connects with Amazon Alexa
Alexa is Amazon's voice service that can answer questions, provide weather reports, play your music and control your lights. All from your Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Tap.
"Alexa, turn the kitchen light off". Alexa works with a range of Amazon products to bring you hands-free control with your voice. Here are some of our favorite phrases to get started:
"Alexa, turn the lights on"
"Alexa, switch to 50% brightness"
"Alexa, turn on movie night scene"
New. Added shades of white and color control.
"Alexa, set the lights to green"
"Alexa, change the lights to blue"
"Alexa, set the lights to warm white"
"Alexa, change the light to daylight white"
"Alexa, make the light warmer/cooler"
Alexa controls your Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Tap.

Echo Dot is a hands-free, voice controlled device with a small built-in speaker that connects with Alexa.

Ready to get started?
Make sure your lights are on the LIFX Cloud then follow these steps:
1. Open the Alexa app and go to Smart Home in the Menu. Choose, Get More Smart Home Skills, and search for LIFX. Authorize your account with the Skill.
2. Close the authentication page and tap discover devices. After a few seconds your lights will be displayed under Smart Home in the Alexa app and you can optionally group them for Alexa here (hint: Alexa groups are separate from your personal LIFX groups).
3. Say “Alexa, turn my lights… On” or “...Off”. That's it!
4. Save your favorite colors as a scene in the LIFX app (tell me how) then ask Alexa to activate it any time: “Alexa, turn on My Pink Scene”.
