To achieve this inquiry, you need to create “Routines” on the Alexa app, for details instruction, please contact the Alexa support.

For example

In Alexa app, when setup “Routines”, the trigger is

Voice: Alexa, turn on the bedroom light after 10 minutes,

The action is

Wait(Action 1):set timer to 10 minutes.

Device(Action 2):Turn on bedroom light

When you say the voice command “Alexa, turn on the bedroom light after 10 minutes”, the bedroom light will be turned on after 10 minutes.

 

More Relevant

  1. You can create a group to simultaneously control all devices in it with universal control command. (The group we mentioned is created on the Alexa app, not on the Kasa app)

For example, if you create a group called “bedroom”, which contains two smart devices HS110(Called “Plug”) and LB130(Called “Lamp”), then you can simultaneously control them via command “Alexa, turn on/off bedroom.”

But you can’t say “Alexa, dim/brighten the bedroom.”

For this purpose you have to control them separately by “Alexa, dim/brighten the Lamp.”

  1. The supported language of voice command is decided by Amazon Alexa. Currently only English and German is available.
