eWeLink Works with Alexa Tutorial

eWeLink can connect with Amazon Alexa devices (Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap) to give you command of your home through voice controls. Since eWeLink supports Amazon Alexa, we are committed to improving the function and user experience. Recently, we made a great breakthrough: we have released a brand-new Alexa smart home skill.

The smart home skill is called "eWeLink Smart Home Fan". Compared to the old skill "eWeLink fan", the smart home skill is more intelligent, more responsive and more friendly! (The new skill has solved the annoying problems of poor responding ability and long commands.) With the smart home skill, users can control more Sonoff devices with simpler commands now. The smart home skill even supports complicated commands of adjusting LED's brightness and color temperature. If you use the old "eWeLink fan" skill, we suggest you stop using it immediately. We will step to step teaching you how to set up to use the smart home skill and control Sonoff devices below.
