Before giving commands to Alexa and using Alexa echo hue commands, it has to be first installed properly. There are two ways of doing this. Firstly one can directly import scenes and rooms from the Philips Hue app and give the command “Alexa, discover devices” and then press the connect button on the Philips Hue app. Secondly, one can install the Philips Hue Skill setup to additionally import rooms and scenes from the Philips Hue setup.

Now, for using the setup and connecting Alexa to Philips Hue, a ‘My Hue’ account is to be generated. This account will enable the communication between Alexa and the Philips Hue app.

While using the setup, all the scenes will be imported to Alexa. But all of them may not be needed. So, before connecting the two and using the Alexa echo hue commands, the undesired scenes are to be deleted.

Enabling The Philips Hue Skill

The Alexa app is opened and locate the ‘Devices’ section at the bottom right of the app.

Tap on the ‘Enable Smart Home Skills’ and then tap on ‘Your Smart Home Skills’.

Search ‘Hue’ within the Smart Home Skills, select it and tap on the ‘Enable to use’ option.

The Philips Hue Skill requires account linking. So login with the Philips ‘My Hue’ account.

On the ‘Grant permission’ page, click on ‘Yes’ to link the account.

A message like “Hue has been successfully linked” will appear.

Tap on “Done” and the Alexa echo hue commands system is ready to use.
