Smart lighting lets you control your connected lights remotely or by voice when paired with Alexa. Smart bulbs can come with the ability to dim or change color so you can adjust the mood of any room and in a wide array of sizes to fit light fixtures or lamps. Smart switches can be a cost effective way to control multiple lights with your normal bulbs but typically require installation. Check out our smart home setup page for help installing your smart lighting.
“Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights.”
“Alexa, dim the bedroom lights.”
“Alexa, turn the living room lamp blue.”
Smart plugs help you turn many everyday appliances into part of your smart home. Plug lamps, floor fans, Christmas tree lights, and more into a smart plug and control them all easily. You can even keep track of your electricity consumption with an energy-monitoring smart plug. Check out our smart home setup page for help connecting your smart plugs.
“Alexa, turn on the lamp.”
“Alexa, turn off the fan.”
“Alexa, turn on the coffee maker."
Heating and cooling systems can be one of the largest contributors to electricity bills. Smart thermostats can help you save energy (and the environment) by adjusting your home’s temperature when you‘re away. Control your thermostat from any room when you add hands-free voice control with Alexa. Check out our smart home setup page for help connecting your thermostat.
“Alexa, set the living room to 72.”
“Alexa, what’s the temperature in here?”
“Alexa, turn the temperature down."
Smart cameras allow you to instantly monitor the inside or perimeter of your home with just your voice when you connect them to Alexa and an Echo Show, Echo Spot, or Fire TV. Check in on your sleeping baby or confirm that the knock at the door is just a package delivery, all without going to another room. You can also use your phone to remotely check in on your home. Relax and be confident that you can keep an eye on what’s happening in and around your house no matter where you are. Check out our smart home setup page for help connecting your smart cameras.
“Alexa, show me the nursery.”
“Alexa, show me the front door."
