Authored by: Tech Pro Team

1. Introduction

This guide will walk you through connecting your Sengled account to your Amazon account, to control your Sengled lights with the Alexa Assistant on your smartphone, tablet, and range of Amazon speakers like the Echo.

Before You Begin:

Amazon Alexa App
You will need to have the Amazon Alexa app installed on your smartphone or tablet to connect to your smart home devices.

Sengled Light Setup
Before you can link your Sengled devices to your IFTTT account, you must have setup your Sengled device with the appropriate Sengled app first.

Sengled and Amazon Alexa

Unsupported Sengled Bulbs

At this time, certain Sengled smart bulbs do not integrate with Amazon Alexa, as they do not have a way to talk to a server on the Internet.

Sengled Pulse

At this time, the Sengled Pulse line of bulbs only connect via Bluetooth, not Zigbee or Wi-Fi. They will only talk to another Bluetooth device such as your phone, or the Sengled Pulse Link.

Sengled Smartsense

The Sengled Smartsense bulbs have no connectivity, rather they just provide a convenient motion sensor combined with an energy efficient light.

Sengled Element with Other Hubs

If you're using your Sengled Element bulbs and devices with a 3rd party hub, such as Wink or SmartThings, Amazon Alexa can access these bulbs through those services instead.
