Voice Commands for Alexa

To turn your plug on/off:

You can use a voice command to turn on or off a specific Plug.

  • "Alexa, turn (plug name) off."
  • "Alexa, turn (plug name) on."

To change your Wyze Plug's name:

If your plug's name is a little complicated, it maybe hard for Alexa to hear it properly and follow your command. There are two ways to change your bulb's name:

  • In the Wyze app:
    • Tap on your Wyze Plug > Settings > Name. Edit the plug name. 
    • So Alexa can learn the new name, go to the Alexa App and tap Devices > + plus sign > Add Device. Alexa will automatically discover your devices and the new plug name.
  • In the Alexa app:
    • Tap Devices > Plugs and tap on your plug. Tap the Settings gear, then Edit Name
      • This will not change the name in the Wyze app.

Additional Notes:

  • The Wyze skill works with all plugs that are connected to your Wyze account, including plugs shared by other Wyze users.
  • Assign your plug an easily pronounceable name, such as “Garage plug” or “Living Room”.
  • If power to your plug is turned off using the light switch, or due to a power outage, Alexa will not be able to access the plug to turn it on or off.
