Connecting Amazon Alexa to your WIFIPLUGs allows you to control them using Amazon Alexa on your smartphone and also on your Amazon Echo smart speaker.
Before you can connect Amazon Alexa you must first have registered in the WIFIPLUG app. Not yet set this up? Please see this guide on how to setup your WIFIPLUG account.
Note for customers with WIFIPLUG HOME
If your HOME plug is setup using the Apple Home app only then you will need to connect it through the WIFIPLUG app before it will be visible to Amazon Alexa. Please see this guide on how to setup HOME in the WIFIPLUG app.
