Make sure you are connected to the 2.4GHz WiFi network and enter your WiFi name and password. The app will scan for the device and register it to the cloud. Once the device is set up, you can change its name if you want.

Step 3: Connect to Alexa

Open the Smart Life app and click on “Settings” and then “Alexa.” Sign in to your Alexa app and click on the “Link” button to connect the two apps together. Once you have linked the apps, go to the Alexa app and refresh the devices page to see the newly added smart plug.

Step 4: Group Devices

With Alexa, you can group your smart plugs and give them a collective name. For example, if you want to control your Christmas lights, you can group them together and name them “Christmas Lights.” To do this, open the Alexa app and click on “Devices.” Click on the plus button and select “Add Group.” Name the group and select the devices you want to include. You can now control all the devices in that group using voice commands.
