Alexa’s Light Show: Beyond On and Off

Alexa’s smart light control is not just about turning lights on or off; it’s about creating specific moods and scenes in your home. With Alexa, you can easily switch up the atmosphere from calm to lively with just a voice command.

  1. Everything but the cost (per bulb) presumably purchased fro Amazon? Does it have a dimmer command? 3 years ago I threw out all my incandescent bulbs & replaced with LEDs. The Chinese made color bulbs each has its own remote and dims by 4 stages. Now, alongside Alexa they seem dated but it’s all down to cost and “dim-ability”.

    1. you can dim the connected LEDS by asking alexa to Dim the __light name__ to whatever percentage you’d like.

    1. You can create an automation in the Alexa app and add wait times in between color changes, but it gets annoying having to re-run the automation after a while.

  2. Thanks Isaac! I check in periodically to see if there’s been an update. I bookmarked the page (and will probably print it out) so I can refer to it when I talk to my Alexa unit. Wish there was a way to add these neat colours to the menu.
