Where to start
Before you can begin controlling your Wemo devices with your voice, you will need to add the Wemo skill to your Amazon Alexa account. To learn how, click here.
There are a few things to consider when preparing your Wemo devices to work with your Amazon Alexa. These tips below will help ensure a smoother experience.
If you have a Wemo device with a number in its name, it is recommended to spell it rather than use the number. An example would be using “Two” instead of 2. It will be easier for Alexa to recognize.
2. Try to use unique names with your Wemo devices
If you have Wemo devices that have similar names, your Alexa might have trouble distinguishing them apart. Try to make the names as unique as possible.
3. Be careful when naming groups
Group names should be as unique as possible from each other and from the names of other Wemos. If you have a Wemo named Couch Light and a group named Couch Lights, your Alexa might have trouble distinguishing them apart.
