Your favorite NuBryte smart lighting features are now voice activated! We’re excited to announce that we unveiled a new integration with Amazon Alexa at CES last week. Alexa, the smart voice service that powers Echo, Echo Dot & Tap devices, makes your NuBryte Smart Home even more convenient!
Special message from NuBryte VP of Product Development – Steven
Setting up your Amazon Alexa Skill is easy! Find more details in the video.
So what does this mean for you? NuBryte Touchpoint customers can now use voice automation to talk to Alexa and ask her to control your NuBryte connected lights! Ready to snuggle in for movie night? Tell Alexa to dim the family room lights by 50% to set the perfect scene. Tired of asking the kids to turn out their bedroom lights)? Ask Alexa instead.
1. Find the Alexa Skill on Amazon for NuBryte, and click Enable.
2. Login to your NuBryte account.
3. Pair your NuBryte device to your Amazon Alexa product.
Now that you’re all paired up, you’re ready to start talking to Alexa! Simply speak the name of the lights that you’ve set-up in your NuBryte Touchpoint. (Hint – you can update the name of your NuBryte connected rooms in the Settings on your NuBryte Touchpoint, or in the Device list in the NuBryte App.
Tip: Give your NuBryte rooms/lights names that will be natural and easy for the whole family to speak. For example, “Kitchen Island”, “Breakfast Nook”, or “Bedroom”. It is recommended that you not use "the", "a" or "my" in the assigned names as these could confuse Alexa.
Tip: For multi-channel NuBryte devices, the Alexa-discovered device names will be a combination of the Touchpoint device name with the individual lighting fixture name.
For example, if a Touchpoint named "Bedroom" has two channels named "Ceiling" and "Lamp", then the devices listed in the Alexa App would be "Bedroom Ceiling" and "Bedroom Lamp".
Tip: Create an Alexa Group, like “Downstairs” or “Kids’ Bedrooms”, and assign NuBryte lights to your groups so that you can easily control groups of rooms all at the same time!
We’re excited about our partnership with Amazon, and are exploring additional Alexa capabilities that we’ll be sharing with you soon. Tell us what you’d love to see!
