Alexa has been a part of Indian homes for six years now, and has helped make daily tasks simpler. Setting up a smart home is easy with Amazon Alexa, as it can easily be integrated with compatible smart devices. It can control your lights, smart appliances, and do a variety of things via simple voice commands. You can also create routines to simplify your day. This is why the past three years have seen a 200% increase in the number of smart home devices connected to Alexa in India.

Yet to begin your smart home journey? Here’s everything you need to know about converting your home into a smart home with Alexa.

Updated Alexa app adds new customization options and puts the smart home controls and Alexa features you use most at your fingertips

Get connected with smart lights and smart plugs

Smart lights are among the easiest ways to start creating a smart home. Alexa helps you control your smart lights individually, or in groups. Alexa-enabled smart plugs will let you control any lights, alongside appliances or devices connected to it. Just plug your appliance into a smart plug, set it up using the Alexa mobile app, and control it with commands like, “Alexa, turn on the AC”.

A smart home is a more secure home

Home security is of top priority, and Alexa can enhance your peace of mind. Connecting your compatible security cameras and doorbell systems with Alexa lets you monitor the door even when you are on the go. Just say, “Alexa, show me the front door camera” and the feed will appear on your Amazon Echo Show, a compatible smart TV, or your smartphone. This way you will always know who is at your doorstep.

Your daily routine, simplified

Alexa routines are a great way to automate your day and save time. By creating custom automation sequences, you can trigger multiple actions with a single voice command or at a specific time. For example, you can create a morning routine by simply saying, “Alexa, good morning” and Alexa turns on the lights, reads the news, shares traffic updates, and also tells you the weather. This is highly customisable based on your personal preferences. Alexa customers can use their voice to turn on or turn off their smart home devices such as lights, fans, TVs, and more, at a later time or for a certain duration. Just use a simple phrase like, “Alexa, turn on the lights at 6 pm today.

Unwind with the best in music and entertainment

Alexa can do much more than controlling lights and devices. It can also transform your home into an entertainment hub. Connect your smart TV, streaming devices, and even your sound system to an Alexa-enabled device, and you will be able to control them all with simple voice commands. Ask Alexa to play your favourite songs, adjust the volume, or switch between streaming services, all while you are in the kitchen or laying on the couch.
