Try these commands and see what happens by asking Alexa:

- Alexa, turn on the “Smart Bulb”

- Alexa, turn off the “Smart Bulb”

Note: The device name is the one you give to the smart bulb in the “Brookstone Smart” App. Let’s name it “Living Room”.

For example, now you can say:

- “Alexa, make the Living Room Blue”,

- “Alexa, make the Living Room White”, etc.

Any device you connect to the Brookstone Smart App should automatically be added to Alexa. If it does not add automatically, ask Alexa to discover devices.
