First, connect your C by GE devices to the C by GE app. Once you’ve connected your C by GE smart switch to the C by GE app, you are ready to enable Alexa control. Our smart switch is a Wi-Fi device that can enable Alexa as a hub.
Important: Make sure you are naming your C by GE switches something that can be easily said in a voice command. For example, name the smart switch in your kitchen, “Kitchen Switch” instead of an abbreviation like “Kitchen SW.”
If this is your first time setting up C by GE devices with Alexa:
- If you haven't already, set up your devices in the C by GE app
- Open the Alexa app
- Tap the menu icon in the top left corner
- Select “Skills & Games”
- Tap the search icon and type in “C by GE”
- Select the C by GE skill and tap “Enable to use”
- Enter your C by GE account login information
- Next, you will be prompted to Discover Devices. Tap “Discover Devices” button
- Alexa will discover your C by GE devices, and now you can start controlling them! You can use the Alexa app to add them to rooms, create routines, and more.
If you have previously set up C by GE devices with Alexa and want to add more:
- If you haven’t already, set up your device in the C by GE app.
- Check your devices page in the Alexa app. If you see your device listed, you’re done! Most of the time, Alexa automatically discovers your new C by GE devices within 30 seconds of completing setup.
- If you do not see your new device listed, simply say, “Alexa, discover devices.”
