How to Connect Sengled Bulb to Alexa
If you want to control your Sengled smart bulbs with Alexa, you’re in luck! Connecting your Sengled bulbs to Alexa is a simple process that allows you to effortlessly control your lights using voice commands. In this article, we will guide you step-by-step on how to connect your Sengled bulbs to Alexa, so let’s get started!
Step 1: Set Up the Sengled Hub and Bulbs
The first step to connecting your Sengled bulbs to Alexa is to set up the Sengled Hub and the bulbs themselves. Start by screwing the Sengled bulbs into the light fixtures you want to control. Make sure the bulbs are powered on and functioning properly.
Next, connect the Sengled Hub to your home Wi-Fi network. Plug in the Sengled Hub to a power outlet, and if necessary, connect the hub to your router using the included Ethernet cable. Once the hub is connected, download and open the Sengled Home app on your smartphone.
Follow the on-screen instructions in the app to create a Sengled account if you don’t already have one. After setting up your account, you will be prompted to add the Sengled bulbs to your system. Tap the “Add Bulbs” option in the app and follow the instructions to pair each bulb with the hub. Ensure that all bulbs are successfully connected to the hub before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2: Enable the Sengled Skill on Alexa
With your Sengled bulbs connected to the hub, the next step is to enable the Sengled Skill on your Alexa device. Open the Alexa app on your smartphone or access the Alexa website on your computer.
In the Alexa app or website, go to the “Skills & Games” section and search for “Sengled.” Look for the official Sengled Skill and click on it to open the skill’s page. Click the “Enable” or “Enable Skill” button to activate the Sengled Skill on your Alexa device.
Step 3: Discover Devices on Alexa
After enabling the Sengled Skill, your Alexa device needs to discover the connected Sengled bulbs. To do this, say, “Alexa, discover my devices.” Alternatively, you can manually discover devices using the Alexa app or website. In the app, go to the “Devices” tab, tap on the “+” button, and select “Add Device.” Follow the on-screen instructions to let Alexa scan for new devices.
Alexa will search for compatible devices and add the detected Sengled bulbs to your device list. Once the discovery process is complete, you will see a list of all the devices found by Alexa, including your Sengled bulbs.
Step 4: Group Your Sengled Bulbs (Optional)
If you have multiple Sengled bulbs in different rooms or areas, you can create groups to control them collectively. For example, you can group all the bulbs in your living room and name it “Living Room Lights.” To create a group, open the Alexa app or website and go to the “Devices” tab.
Tap on the “+” button and select “Add Group.” Choose a name for the group and select the Sengled bulbs you want to include. After creating the group, you can now control all the grouped bulbs simultaneously by giving voice commands to Alexa.
Step 5: Enjoy Voice-Controlled Lighting
Once your Sengled bulbs are connected to Alexa, you can start controlling them using your voice. Simply say, “Alexa, turn on/off [bulb/group name],” and Alexa will execute the command accordingly. You can also adjust the brightness level by saying, “Alexa, set [bulb/group name] to [percentage] percent.”
Additionally, you can create routines in the Alexa app to automate your Sengled bulbs. For instance, you can schedule your lights to turn on automatically at sunset or gradually dim them before bedtime. The possibilities are endless!
With the simple steps outlined above, you can easily connect your Sengled bulbs to Alexa and enjoy the convenience of voice-controlled lighting. Now you can sit back, relax, and let Alexa handle your lighting needs, making your smart home even smarter!
