How to pair and control your Twinkly with Amazon Alexa

Applies to Twinkly Generation I and Generation II devices and Twinkly Plus.

What's Amazon Alexa and how does it work?

Amazon Alexa is a cloud-based artificial intelligence that functions as a voice assistant.
It is software that can be integrated into speakers and other smart devices, and by interpreting language can respond to certain commands.

You can take a closer look at the official website:

You can manage remotely Twinkly using voice controls, by connecting Twinkly to the Amazon Alexa app. Amazon Alexa is a smartphone app available on the AppStore and Google Play Store.
Connecting the lights to Amazon Alexa allows you to control Twinkly through voice commands from your smartphone and through Amazon Echo devices.


First, you need to download the Twinkly app and follow these 2 steps:

  1. Connect Twinkly to a local Wi-Fi Network

  2. Download the Amazon Alexa app and follow the guided procedure to configure it.

Also please check:

  •  You installed on Twinkly the latest version of firmware available.

  •  Your Amazon Echo device (if available) is running and connected to the same local Wi-Fi network as your Twinkly.

  •  The local Wi-Fi network properly accesses internet resources.

  • Your smartphone is connected to the same local Wi-Fi network as your Twinkly and of your Amazon Echo device (if available).

Make sure to have your Twinkly Account Login info at hand.
