Please add lightbulbs to Amazon Echo

by Eddie53 on ‎12-19-2016 01:03 AM

Hi, I have been using Wemo for a while I recently purchased an Amazon Echo which works great with the switches. When are you going to incorporate the lightsbuilbs as I don't want to change to Philips Hue just to be able to control my lighting. Many

 

Thanks Eddie

You might have to IFTTT it to start with. I'm sure it'll come in time. But for now, it will have to be "Alexa, trigger the lounge lights on"

Bulb support was recently added but you have to add the Wemo skill.   This is different that the out of box Wemo support on Echo.

Oh, I just went to the Wemo skill last night and it said it's only for the Wemo Light Switch, Wemo Switch and Wemo Insight Switch. Can you please confirm it works?

Yeah... my bulbs show up.  Not surprised bulbs aren't mentioned though as they have EOL'd along with the Link.

The support links clearly state that WEMO LED LIGHTS are not supported. Why is everyone claiming this works with light bulbs from WEMO when it's not? Here I can't get alexa to see the bulbs. If I'm missing something someone please explain? 

 

And if it's true why are WEMO LED bulbs excluded?
