Control the Colors of TP-Link® Smart Bulbs with Amazon Alexa

Color Change and White-Tune Voice Control for TP-Link Smart Wi-Fi
Bulbs

BREA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TP-Link®,
a leading global provider of consumer and business networking products,
today announced that consumers may now control the color-change and
white-tuning features of their TP-Link Smart Bulbs via the Amazon Alexa
“TP-Link Kasa” smart home skill. With this updated skill, consumers can
use simple voice commands via Amazon Alexa to change the color of their
LB130 smart bulbs and the white-tuning of both their LB120 and LB130
Smart Bulbs.

These new smart home skill features were developed through close
collaboration between Silicon Valley-based TP-Link Research America
(TPRA), TP-Link’s smart home solutions team and the Amazon Alexa team.

“TP-Link’s dedicated research and development team always strives for
new ways to enhance the smart home experience of our customers,” said
David Li, CEO of TP-Link Research America Corporation. “Our successful
ongoing integration with Amazon Alexa allows us to continue developing
new ways for consumers to personalize their smart homes.”

The enhanced Amazon Alexa smart home skill for TP-Link Kasa makes it
easier than ever to select the perfect lighting for any mood or setting.
Users can ask Alexa to make bedroom lights warm white in the evening to
improve sleep or ask Alexa to set the office to cool white, to help
concentrate on work. It’s also easier than ever to adjust brightness
levels, change the temperature of white light or quickly flip the lights
to the colors of your favorite sports team. You can even change the
color to a romantic pink or bold red for date night, simply using the
sound of your voice.

“TP-Link is strongly committed to the smart home category,” said Lewis
Wu, executive vice president at TP-Link USA. “Through our relationship
with Amazon’s Alexa team, we continue to find new ways to innovate and
offer consumers feature-rich products that will make their lives easier.”

In order to use Amazon Alexa voice control to change the color or color
temperature of TP-Link Smart Bulbs, consumers will first need to pair
their TP-Link LB120 or TP-Link LB130 Smart Bulbs with their device with
Amazon Alexa. Once paired, they may begin using voice control to apply
these features. Existing TP-Link Kasa app users whose smart home devices
are already paired with their device with Amazon Alexa do not need to
take any steps to enjoy this new feature.

Sample Phrases Include:

  • “Alexa, turn on my bedroom lights”
  • “Alexa, brighten downstairs to 60 percent”
  • “Alexa, dim the living room lights”
  • “Alexa, set the bedroom light to blue”
  • “Alexa, turn the kitchen orange”
  • “Alexa, set the kitchen light to cool white”
  • “Alexa, make the bedroom light warmer/cooler”

The updated Kasa skill works with both TP-Link LB120 and LB130 TP-Link
Smart Wi-Fi Bulbs. TP-Link LB120 and LB130 Smart Wi-Fi Bulbs are
available online at Amazon.comwww.tp-link.com
and other leading retailers online and in stores.
