The Alexa has a built-in timer function that will perform the action desired after telling it to wait an “x” amount of time.

Instance: Ask Alexa " turn on the bedroom light after 10 minutes"

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

  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 the 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 the voice command is decided by Amazon Alexa. Currently only English and German are available.
