Other useful commands are the ones for turning all the lights in a room on/off and dimming them. Users of Amazon Alexa should create a Group in the Alexa App. Devices of a specific room should be added to this group as well as the Echo, which is in the room. If the Echo, which is in this room, hears the “Alexa, turn off lights” command, it will turn the lights of that room on. The naming of the devices and the room name is not important.

To turn on/off all lights in room/group:
“Alexa, turn on/off lights”

To dim all lights in room/group:
"Alexa, set lights to 50%”
