There are loads of things you can do with Alexa, here are some of our favorites :
• If you want to control your heating or cooling, just say “Alexa, increase the temperature on my thermostat < name that you have given to your thermostat>.‘’

• If you want to set the mood, just say “Alexa, dim the <name that you have given bulb, such as bedroom> light”
• If you have a Hive Active Plug™ connected to a lamp and you want to switch it on/off, just say “Alexa, turn on/off bedroom lamp”
