Control Your Lights with Alexa
One of the best ways to use Alexa is to control your lights. Alexa can control many smart home lights. You need to add the skill that corresponds with your lights and you will likely need to link your account or log in to the account.
You can also control plugs with WeMo and many other smart plugs that Alexa can control. This allows you to turn off lamps and other devices that aren't traditionally connected to voice control.
