How do I control my Hive products with Amazon Alexa? [North America]

Congratulations! You can now control your Hive products with your voice, how cool is that? Here’s some information to get you started.  

Download the Amazon Alexa app and enable the Hive-Optimized for Smart Home Skill.

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 turn a Hive Active Light on or off, just say “Alexa, tell Hive to turn the <name that you have given bulb, such as bedroom> light on/off""
•     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”

Top tip –  you can find a full list of what you can ask Alexa to do with Hive in the Hive Skill description on the Alexa app.
