Sometimes you need an extra hand. You were born with a voice box, use it! Whether it’s an Amazon product like the Echo, Tap, or Dot, or an Alexa-embedded device like the Nucleus intercom, you can now get the extra hand you need – all you have to do is ask.
Simply tell Alexa-enabled devices to adjust the lights or plug-in loads whenever you need that helping hand. Here are some common usages to get you started:
- Coming through the front door with your arms full? “Alexa, Turn on Entry Lamps” provides a safe pathway.
- Washing dishes and hear something outside? “Alexa, Turn on All Outside Lights” will put a light on the situation.
- About to enjoy a movie but want to remain comfortable on the couch? “Alexa, Set Living Room Lights to 10%” and snuggle in.
- Ready to switch from dinner prep to dinner time? “Alexa, Set dining room chandelier to 25%” as you carry the food to the table.
Use your imagination and have fun controlling every light and load in your home with either a schedule, an app or your voice! Get started with an Echo Dot and a plug-in dimmer or plug-in outlet. But be forewarned, you will soon want to change every dimmer and switch in your home. So be safe – go ahead and scoop up the six pack of Echo Dot’s and a few Leviton Decora Smart with Wi-Fi technology devices. Now you can declare as ruler of your castle, “Alexa, turn off all lights”.
