2 surprisingly helpful Alexa smart light hacks

#1. Put your lights into a group to turn them on and off together

Put your living room smart lights into a "living room lights" group and your bedroom lights into a "bedroom lights" group. That way you can just say "Alexa, turn on living room lights" or "Alexa, turn off bedroom lights" (great when you're dozing off to sleep!). To see how, tap/click here (it's super easy).

Pro Tip: You can also add smart plugs to a group along with your smart lights.

#2. Create an Alexa routine to more easily dim smart lights

For example, you could set up an Alexa routine that triggers when you say "Alexa, it's bedtime" and dims each of your bedroom smart lights to your preferred setting. Tap/click here to see how to easily set up an Alexa routine.

Pro Tip: If you have 3 smart lights, you'll need to add dimming each one as a separate routine action. But you only have to set up the routine once, so it's much easier than asking Alexa to dim each of your smart lights separately every night.

Tommy Hilfiger created an Alexa voice shopping skill for its new clothing line made for people with disabilities

Tommy Hilfiger recently introduced the world's first adaptive clothing line designed by and made for people with disabilities.

To create a shopping experience as inclusive as the clothing itself, Tommy Hilfiger created an Alexa skill so that people can easily make purchases by just using their voice -- because they knew that having an adaptive clothing line wouldn't mean much if there weren't an accessible way for people with disabilities to shop for it.
