Outdoor Plug

  • Question: How do I put a YoLink outdoor plug in discovery mode in order to operate it with Amazon Alexa?

Answer:

Please download YoLink App first, and add YoLink devices to the YoLink App

To connect YoLink with Alexa, please follow the below steps.
1. Open Alexa app
2. Open “Skills & Games” in Alexa App (More/Skills & Games)
3. Search “YoLink”
4. Please enable “YoLink Skill” first
5. After enabling, you will connect your YoLink account with Alexa
6. Discover devices by the app (Devices/”+”/Add Device) or verbally (“Alexa, discover new devices”), then your Alexa-compatible devices will sync to the Alexa App
7. Then you can create routines or use voice control with Alexa.

For better user experience, we recommend you use Groups in the Alexa app to manage your devices.

Please kindly note if there are new or deleted devices in the YoLink account, you need to resynchronize the device list (rediscover devices to sync).

Please refer to the following video for how to set up the outdoor plug

Answer:
