Using Amazon Alexa with your Sengled bulbs

This section will walk you through how to pair and manage your Sengled Smart LED bulbs with Amazon Alexa.

  1. Open the “Alexa” app and select the menu in the top left corner.  Navigate to “Skills” in the Menu.

  1. Search for "Sengled Home", tap on the search result and enable the skill.

3. Enter your Sengled account login information and grant permission to the Alexa app.

If you forget your password, please go to your Sengled app to reset your password.

  

  1. If you would like to rename your devices, return to your "Sengled Home" app.  Open the “Devices” section at the bottom of your screen. Select the device you want to rename, tap on the Edit icon next to the current name of the device, and enter your preferred name. Click “OK” and continue renaming your other devices if you would like. When finished, move on to the next step.

   

  1. Return to "Amazon Alexa" app and navigate to "Smart Home" in the Menu dropdown. Tap on "Add Devices" and Alexa will find your bulbs.

   

Note:

Please note that the "Amazon Alexa" app will not synchronize the rooms and schedules within "Sengled Home" app.

You may, however, create rooms in "Amazon Alexa" app with the same names as those in your “Sengled Home” app and assign the Sengled bulbs to their corresponding rooms. E.g. you have two Element bulbs grouped as "Office" in your "Sengled Home" app, you can create a group named "Office" in the "Amazon Alexa" app and assign those same Element bulbs to "Office".

Please note that name changes in your "Amazon Alexa" app will not result any changes in “Sengled Home" app and vice versa.  To sync the names, you un-link and then re-link your “Sengled Home”, or say "Hey Alexa, sync my devices" to refresh the names.

If you add new devices or rename your devices in the “Sengled Home”app, you should tap the “+” button then add devices, or say "Hey Alexa, sync my devices" to refresh the device list.
