If you're a proud owner of NuBryte Smart Home, you're probably already loving all the built-in home automation features like home security, automated lighting, intercom system, and Home Hub. Did you know that you can do even more to automate the lighting in your home? If you also have an Amazon Echo device, you can connect your NuBryte smart light switches to Alexa to make your home smarter!
We've all been there - walking through the door into a dark room. But what if you could give a simple voice command to ask Alexa to turn on the kitchen lights? Our seamless touch-free approach to the smarter home brings you even more convenience and efficiency.
Say hello to NuBryte Home Automation with Amazon Alexa!
Let's Get Started!
1. Find the Alexa Skill on Amazon for NuBryte, and click "Enable". It's free, and easy to set-up!
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”, “Family Room”, or “Kate's 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! This one is a game changer!
