Note: The following instructions show how to integrate the devices you already have setup in your Sengled Home app to Alexa. These devices include the Sengled hubs and the devices attached to those Sengled hubs and Sengled Wi-Fi bulbs and accessories.
Note: The images correspond to how the setup looks on an iOS device. The Android version may look slightly different. The Alexa app may look different when you are setting up the Sengled Home Skill due to updates to the Alexa app. The essence of the instructions will, however, still be relevant.
1. Open the Alexa app and press the "More" tab at the bottom-left corner of the screen. Then, tap "Skills and Games".
2. Press the magnifying glass in the top-right corner of the screen.
A search bar will appear; type in “Sengled”, then tap on the option that says "Sengled."
3. Tap on the option named "Sengled Home". Then, tap on "Enable to Use".
4. Tap on “Enable to Use”.
This will redirect you to a page where you will type in the email address and password associated with your Sengled Home app.
5. From here, you will type in the password that is associated with your Sengled Home app to connect your Sengled devices to your Echo device(s).
Note: The login credentials for the Sengled website will not work on this page; the Sengled website is mostly for general info about our products.
In the area circled in green, type in the email address associated with your Sengled Home app.
Note: Do not use the autofill feature as the autofill feature of some phones does not fill in the email address properly—i.e. adding in a space at the beginning or end of the email address.
In the area circled in purple, type in the password associated with your Sengled Home app.
After the email address and password are typed in, press “Sign In”.
6. From here, tap on "Close", then “Discover Devices”.
7. The Alexa app will search for devices.
Step Eight will vary based upon the results.
8a. If the Alexa app says she did discover the devices, all that is left to do is to organize the bulbs into groups.
8b. If your Alexa app says "No new devices found", it may be an instance of the Alexa False Fail Issue—where the Alexa app, or the Echo device itself, will say that it failed to discover any new devices when, in fact, it did discover the devices.
As demonstrated by the message at the top of the screen, the devices did discover.
Tap on "Lights" and then tap "All Off". If your lights respond, that means they did connect to Alexa successfully and you were running into the Alexa False Fail issue.
Note: If you have run into this issue, please report it to Amazon.
9. After the devices have been discovered, organize the bulbs into a group so we can control multiple bulbs with one voice-command.
To that end, tap the "Devices" tab to navigate to the "Devices" page.
Now, tap the "+" at the top-right corner; then, tap "Add Group".
10. Then, do the following: tap "Next", select the name you want the group to have and tap "Next", select the devices you want to be associated with that group.
Then, when asked to choose the Echo devices in that group, press "Skip" as—for the purposes of controlling lights—the room to which an Echo device is associated with does not matter,
11. From here, we will be redirected back to the “Devices” page of the Alexa app. Now, we can control the bulbs as a group.
Here are some example voice commands:
“[Wake word for Echo device] set [group’s name/bulb’s name] to [0-100] percent.”
Using our previous example and our Echo device, we would say, “Alexa, set Bedroom to 1%.”
“[Wake word for Echo device] turn [group’s name/bulb’s name] on/off”
Using our previous example and our Echo device, we would say, “Alexa, turn Master Bedroom off.”
