What is Amazon Echo?
Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It's hands-free and always on. It can hear you from across the house even when it is playing your favourite tune.
Echo connects to Alexa, a cloud-based voice service, to provide information, answer questions, play music, read the news, check sports scores or the weather, and even control your LIFX lights. All you have to do is ask. Echo begins working as soon as it detects the wake word. You can pick Alexa or Amazon as your wake word.
Connects With LIFX
Use Echo to switch off the lights when you’re snug in bed, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie - all with just a few key phrases.
Simply connect your LIFX cloud account to Alexa and you are ready to control your lights via voice.
"Alexa, tell LIFX to turn on then Kitchen lights."
"Alexa, tell LIFX to turn change the Living Room lights to red."
"Alexa, tell LIFX to set the brightness to 10% in the hallway."
