Homey can connect with Alexa in two ways:
- With the Homey + Alexa Voice integration, you can speak to Homey directly through Amazon Alexa, for example "Alexa, ask Homey to turn off all devices upstairs".
- With the Homey + Alexa Smart Home integration, you can control your Homey devices directly through Alexa, for example "Alexa, turn on all lights".
This article will explain how to set up the voice integration. Looking for the smart home integration?
Note: Your Homey needs to be set up in English, otherwise this will not work.
1. Download the Amazon Alexa app
To get started make sure your Amazon Echo (Dot) is set up and connected to a Wi-Fi network. Once your Amazon Echo (Dot) is set up use the mobile app for the Amazon Echo (Dot) and go to Skills in the menu.

3. Log in with your Homey account
After you have clicked 'enable' you will be redirected to the Athom log in screen. Log in with your Homey account. Now you are all done and ready to use your Amazon Echo (Dot) in combination with Homey!
