About Amazon Alexa
Alexa is a voice assistant integrated into Amazon speakers named Echo. Some speakers, like the Echo Plus and the Echo Show (2nd gen) have a built-in hub and don’t need a separate bridge to control your smart lighting. Other speakers, like Echo Dot and Echo Show (1st gen) can control your smart lighting via a separate bridge, for example a bridge of Hue or SmartThings. To connect a bridge, you enable the Skill in the Alexa-app.
