Kick Up Your Smart Lighting & Safety with 2 Must-Do Alexa Hacks:
#1. Make It Look Like Someone’s Home — Even When You’re Not There
An Alexa smart lights routine can up your home security by bringing your home to life even when no one is home. Create a simple recurring Alexa routine that turns the lights on and off and plays music or news. If you want to be fancy, set up different routines for different days of the week so the routines look less automated to onlookers.
#2. Turn On Your Lights Automatically When You Arrive Home
Sure, it’s convenient to vocally prompt Alexa to turn on the lights when you get home, but wouldn’t it be even more convenient if lights automatically turned on upon your arrival? Good news, you can! Simply update location settings and set up an Alexa routine in your phone’s Alexa app so that designated lights turn on as soon as you get home. Yes, it’s that easy!
