Creating Useful Names with Alexa

For the best Alexa experience try to follow these best practices:

  • Use names that are easy to remember and fairly short and unique
    • Good:  "Kitchen Lights"
    • Not so Good:  "Downstairs Kitchen ceiling light on the left side front"
  • Try to avoid re-using the same word at the beginning for many devices.  This may lead Alexa to ask you to clarify which device you meant to request every time
  • Use groups and scenes to create larger categories of lights so you have fewer shorter names to remember
