How to control a Switch
To turn on/off a switch:
“Alexa, turn on/off <scene>”
“Alexa, set on/off <scene>”
How to control a Scene
To activate / turn on a scene:
"Alexa, turn on <scene>"
"Alexa, activate <scene>"
To deactivate / turn off a scene:
"Alexa, turn off <scene>"
"Alexa, deactivate <scene>"
Another useful command is the one for turning all the scenes in a room on/off. For the Google Home users setting up the lights for this command is as simple as assigning (adding) them to a specific room. You can do that with the Google Home mobile app. In this case, the naming of these devices doesn’t matter, while the Room name of course does.
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.
Turn on/off all devices in room/group:
“Alexa, turn on/off <group>”
