You can pair your Fire TV device with compatible Fire TV remotes, game controllers, and some compatible third-party Bluetooth controllers.
Note: Pairing a remote with Fire TV is not the same as setting up an Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Generation) to control your equipment. Visit Set Up Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Generation) to Control Your Equipment for instructions.
You can have up to seven remotes or controllers paired to your Fire TV device at one time.
For Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Generation):
If you have an Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Generation), you see a light near the Voice button rapidly blink amber when it is in discovery mode. You then see three blue flashes when it successfully pairs.
You can tell you have an Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Generation) because it has power, volume, and mute buttons. Other Fire TV remotes do not have a light.
If the light on an Alexa Voice Remote (2nd Generation) slowly blinks amber, the remote isn’t paired. If the light is red, the battery is low. You don’t see the light every time you push a button.

Many third-party Bluetooth game controllers also work with Fire TV devices. If you're setting up a third-party Bluetooth remote, go to Connect a Bluetooth Accessory to Your Fire TV.
To pair an additional or replacement Fire TV remote:
Your Fire TV device then searches for the remote's wireless signal. After the remote is discovered, it displays in the list on-screen. Use one of your already-paired remotes or controllers to select the new remote from the list.
You can then start using the new remote with your Fire TV device.
To see which controllers are compatible with a game, open the detail page from your Fire TV device. Controller information is included in the Works With section.
