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.
Go to the Alexa app and then to Skills and search for your light brand to get started. We use our Alexa to control Hue lights and Lutron light switches, but there are many other services available.
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.
