LIFX Optimized for Smart Home
Voice control for your LIFX lights just got more intuitive. Alexa now includes added color control – giving you more ways to set your mood lighting.
Alexa recognizes everyday phrases such as “Make the lights warmer” and “change lights to incandescent” to make controlling your home conversational!
Here are some of our favorite phrases to get started:
“Alexa, turn on the lights”
“Alexa, set Kitchen lights to 50%”
“Alexa, set the lights to red”
“Alexa, set the lights to warm white”
“Alexa, change the Kitchen light to incandescent”
“Alexa, make the lights cooler”
“Alexa, dim the Kitchen light”
You can also activate your LIFX scenes with Alexa. To learn how to create a Scene in LIFX see https://support.lifx.com/hc/en-us/articles/204074724-Scenes-in-the-LIFX-app. For example, if you’ve got a Movie Night scene you can try:
“Alexa, turn on Movie Night”
To control multiple lights at once, use the Alexa app to group your lights - to learn how see https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201749250. For example if you’ve created groups called Kitchen or Bedroom you can try:
“Alexa, dim the Bedroom lights by 25%”
“Alexa, change the Living Room to cool white”
All LIFX lights can display a full range of warm and cool whites. Try asking Alexa for: Warm White, Soft White, White, Daylight, Cool White
And if your LIFX light supports colors, try asking Alexa for: “White, Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Yellow, Pink, Purple, Violet, Turquoise, Magenta, Fuchsia, Gold, Cyan, Lime, Sky Blue, Lavender, Crimson, Salmon or ”Teal
