I’m explaining how to pair the Sylvania smart light with a home WiFi network to operate remotely via your smartphone, then explain the integration process with Alexa.

- Alexa, turn on kitchen light.
- Alexa, turn off kitchen light.
- Alexa, dim kitchen light.
- Alexa, brighten kitchen light.
- Alexa, set the kitchen light to 20 percent.
- Alexa, set kitchen light to Blue.
- Alexa, set kitchen light to Red.
- Alexa, set scene 3 on kitchen light.
This is how you can connect your Sylvania smart light to Alexa and control it with voice commands. Ensure your smartphone (where the Sylvania SmartWiFii app is installed) is connected to a 2.4 GHz WiFi network to avoid connectivity issues.
