You must have a Lightwave Link (Connect Series) or Link Plus (Smart Series) in order to control any LightwaveRF devices via Alexa. Link Plus L2 or Link1 LW930.
Lightwave is now compatible with Alexa. This means that you can use compatible devices such as the Amazon Echo or Dot to command LightwaveRF devices by voice. You can now dim lights, change heating temperatures, control sockets and more without having to open the LightwaveRF App. When you want to use LightwaveRF, just say the wake word “Alexa” and the room and device that you want to control – e.g. ‘Kitchen spotlights’ and Echo will carry out the command.
How does it work ?
It is very simple to start using Alexa with LightwaveRF. Once you have an Alexa enabled device such as the ‘Echo’, you can create an account with Amazon and downloaded the Alexa App.
Once in the App, depending which link you have (Link or Link Plus) you can then search for and access the LightwaveRF or LINK PLUS ‘skills’. This is the set of instructions that allows Alexa to control Lightwave devices. You can then start to command your Lightwave devices using Alexa, as well as with the LightwaveRF App or Link Plus App. See below for a list of commands that you can use.
