Description

With the Philips Hue skill and Alexa, you can now interact with your Philips Hue lights, rooms, scenes, and colours. To get started, select the "Enable Skill" button in the Alexa App to link your Philips Hue account and say, "Alexa, discover devices”. 
The Philips Hue Smart Home skill functionality is only compatible with the Philips Hue Bridge V2 (square shape).
Note: Basic lighting functionality (on/off/dimming) is available without the Smart Home skill and is compatible with Philips Hue V1 (round) and V2 (square) bridges. You only need to press the Push Link button on the Hue bridge when you ask Alexa to discover devices.
 
Scenes: 
To control scenes, simply tell Alexa to turn on <scene name> in the <room name>. 
- "Alexa, turn on Relax in the Bedroom".
- "Alexa, turn on Energise in the Kitchen”.
 
In the Philips Hue app, default scenes are created automatically for each room, e.g. Relax, Concentrate, Energise, Arctic Aurora, Dimmed and more. Scene names can be found in the Philips Hue app 'Room' tab after you select a specific room. Feel free to create new scenes that work just for you! After creating or renaming a scene, simply ask, "Alexa, discover devices" to have them work with Amazon Alexa.
 
Rooms: 
To control several lights in the same room, simply tell Alexa to turn on <room name> . 
- “Alexa, turn on Bedroom”.
- “Alexa, brighten Kitchen to 60%”.
 
There are two ways to define rooms.
- Use the name(s) you set up already in the Hue app – these are shown in the Philips Hue app 'Room' tab, OR
- Create an Alexa group and add the device(s) to the group in the Alexa App. More information is available at http://tinyurl.com/alexa-smart-home-groups.
 
Light Controls:
- You can turn devices on/off, for example: “Alexa, turn on my Bedroom lights” or “Alexa, turn off the Kitchen lights”.
- You can change the brightness, for example: "Alexa, brighten Dining Room to 60%", or “Alexa, dim the Living Room lights”.

Color Control:
- offers possibilities to change or set colours with Philips Hue Colour bulbs. Say:
- "Alexa, set Bedroom light to orange"
- You can also control shades of white on your Philips Hue white ambiance lights, from cool energising daylight to relaxing warm white light. Say:
- "Alexa, set the Kitchen light to cool white"
- "Alexa, make the Living Room warmer"
