    Frequently asked questions

    What Amazon Alexa devices can I use to control my Philips Hue lights?

    It depends on the way you want to connect your Philips Hue lights. If you have a Hue Bridge, you can use any Amazon Alexa device. If you use Bluetooth, you’ll need a compatible Amazon Echo device. 

    Why isn’t my Philips Hue light showing up in the Amazon Alexa app?

    Your Hue Bridge settings are automatically synced every 24 hours with the Amazon Alexa app, so it may not show up immediately. If you want to see your light right away, say, “Alexa, sync my devices.”

    1. Philips Hue Bluetooth smart lights work with all Echo smart speakers/displays. Hue Bridge required for Echo (1st Gen) and Echo Dot (1stGen) devices.
    2. To learn more about setting up a goodnight routine, go to the Alexa app.
