How can I connect Twinkly to Amazon Alexa?

Manage remotely Twinkly using voice control, by connecting Twinkly to the Amazon Alexa app. Amazon Alexa is a smartphone app available on the AppStore and Google Play Store.
Connecting the lights to Amazon Alexa allows you to control Twinkly through voice commands from your smartphone and through Amazon Echo devices.

Prerequisites
First, you need to download the Twinkly app and follow these 2 steps:

– Connect Twinkly to a local Wi-Fi Network
– Download the Amazon Alexa app and follow the guided procedure to configure it.

Please verify:

  •  You installed on Twinkly the latest version of firmware available.
  •  Your Amazon Echo device (if available) is running and connected to the same local Wi-Fi network as your Twinkly.
  •  The local Wi-Fi network properly accesses internet resources.
  • Your smartphone is connected to the same local Wi-Fi network of your Twinkly and of your Amazon Echo device (if available).

Twinkly account
Make sure to have your Twinkly Account Login info at hand.

Add the Twinkly  skill to Amazon Alexa

  1. Open your Amazon Alexa app
  2. Find the Twinkly skill and configure it. It’s part of “lights > others”
  3. Log In with the same credentials of your Twinkly account (if you accessed through Facebook or Apple ID login, be sure to access it with the same user).
  4. In the list of elements available you can see all of your Twinkly. If you created a group of Twinkly you will be only able to control the whole group.
