Amazon Echo Dot
The Echo Dot also uses Alexa, who will answer your questions, play your favourite music and also control your lights.
Your LIFX Lights now talk directly to the Amazon Echo through the Alexa Connected Home Integration. After a few simple set up steps (see below) you can control your LIFX lights with simple statements like:Alexa, Turn the Kitchen light off
Alexa, Switch lights to 50% brightness
Alexa, lower brightness by 25%
Alexa, turn on Movie Night Scene
Alexa, activate My Pink Scene
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”.
