Top Tips For Using Your Alexa
Enable the hey! skill
Make sure the hey! skill is enabled within the Amazon Alexa app and that the connection has been verified using your account details.
Naming and grouping your devices
Remember to name your products something you will remember and that can be easily recognised by Alexa. Creating a group is a great way to control multiple devices at once, for example 'Alexa, Turn on lounge lights' or 'Alexa, Turn off bedroom lights.'
Creating a Routine
Creating a routine within the Alexa app is a great way to let your devices do the hard work whilst you sit back, relax and enjoy the automations.
To create a routine within the Alexa app you need to press 'more' on the bottom tab and then 'routines.'
From here you need to name a routine, set the trigger and select what you would like to happen around your home.
