Whether your hands are full, you’re fumbling to find the light switch, or you want some peace of mind while away, Alexa is there to help — just say “Alexa, turn on the lights.” Pairing Philips Hue with Alexa lets you light your home your way.
It depends on the way you want to connect your Philips Hue lights. If you have a Hue Bridge, you can use any Amazon Alexa device. If you use Bluetooth, you’ll need a compatible Amazon Echo device.
Your Hue Bridge settings are automatically synced every 24 hours with the Amazon Alexa app, so it may not show up immediately. If you want to see your light right away, say, “Alexa, sync my devices.”
