Is your router broadcasting a 2.4 GHz network?

All Dyson connected machines use WiFi to connect to the internet. There are two frequency bands commonly used for a WiFi communication: 2.4 and 5 GHz.

Dyson connected machines only use 2.4 GHz band. Many modern routers support both bands - this is known as a dual band router.

Your router will need to be broadcasting a 2.4GHz network for your appliance to connect.

How to check if your router is a dual band router

If your router is dual band, this information can often be found in the Router user guide or on a sticker located on the router. If you are unable to find this information or unsure we recommend contacting your internet service provider who will be able to supply you with this information.

Often the manual or website will have instructions for how to set it to broadcast on both 2.4 and 5 GHz bands. This will allow you to broadcast the right network to allow you to connect.

The appliance will only connect to the 2.4 GHz network. Your phone will need to be connected to the same network as the appliance for initial set up.

Supported WiFi protocols:

IEEE802.11b (Not recommended)

IEEE802.11g

IEEE802.11n (Support only for 2.4GHz

To switch your router from 5GHz to 2.4GHz, please refer to your routers user guide, or visit the manufacturer’s website. Please note, you will need to check that any other devices you have connected to your router will not be affected before changing this.

Could there be interference from other devices?

Turn off any device that may cause interference at 2.4 GHz. E.g. cordless phones, baby monitors, microwaves, Bluetooth devices, wireless video equipment.

Turn off any device that may cause interference at 2.4 GHz. E.g. cordless phones, baby monitors, microwaves, Bluetooth devices, wireless video equipment.

Has this resolved the problem?

Has the Wi-Fi mode timed out?

Your purifier will remain discoverable for 30 minutes. Press and hold the power button on your machine for 5 seconds to retry.

Is the Wi-Fi connection working with other devices?

Try to connect to the WiFi network with another device such as your phone or tablet.

If other devices cannot connect then check that the appliance is not too far away and is within range of the router. Contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer for further troubleshooting.

Are there too many devices connected to your network?

The number of simultaneous connections to the network may be limited by your router manufacturer or Internet Service Provider.

Disconnect a device connected to your network by disabling WiFi or switching it off.

  • Try to connect your purifier to the network again.
  • If this works, contact your router manufacturer or Internet Service Provider to increase the allowed number of simultaneous connections to the network.

Is the SSID (network name) hidden?

  • The purifier cannot currently attach to a hidden SSID network. To use the purifier, unhide your SSID and attach your purifier.
  • The purifier cannot connect to networks that have web portals that require an additional password to connect. For example hotel, airport or office networks.

Is MAC address filtering switched on?

This stops unknown devices connecting to your WiFi connection. If you have this switched on, you will need to add the MAC address from your machines rating plate to your routers list of approved devices.

Is Wi-Fi privacy 'enabled'?

This stops devices talking to each other – you will need to disable WiFi privacy for the purifier to connect.

Are parental controls enabled?

Temporarily disable any parental control settings whilst setting up the purifier on the network.

Has this resolved the problem?

WiFi diagnostic checks

Check that your purifier's WiFi light is illuminated. To turn it on again, press and hold the 'Standby ON/OFF' button until the WiFi light begins flashing.

Check that your smartphone or tablet is within network range of your purifier.

Has checking the WiFi settings resolved the problem?

Searching for purifier

This is normal. The app starts by looking for any purifiers it can find on the same network it's connected to.

Wait a short time and the app will ask you if you want to add a new purifier.

Has waiting for the search to complete resolved the problem?

Siri will need to be enabled in your device’s Settings, to use Siri Shortcuts with the Dyson Link app.

Open Settings on your phone or tablet, then select ‘Siri & Search’. Next, to enable Siri, switch on ‘Press home for Siri’.

Please select the appropriate option

Before you can use Siri Shortcuts, you must first add your connected machine to the Dyson Link app.

To create a Siri Shortcut, tap the cog on the top right-hand corner of your home screen and select ‘Voice control’ and then ‘Siri’. Then select ‘Add new shortcut’. Next, choose the required settings and press the ‘Add to Siri’ button.

So that Siri can tell the Dyson Link app to run your shortcut, a personalised phrase will need to be recorded. We suggest that each phrase is unique and it’s recognisable.

For example, if you’ve selected Cooling mode and Night mode, this could be named “Bed time” or a heating specific setting could be named “I’m cold”.

Please note, generic phrases already programmed into Siri can’t be used. An example of this is “Good Morning”.

Please select the appropriate option

A list of all personalised phrases will be stored on the ‘Your Siri Shortcuts’ screen for each machine.

To view this, simply tap the cog on the top right-hand corner of the relevant machine’s home screen and select ‘Voice control’ and then ‘Siri’.

Next, select the relevant Siri Shortcut. From here, you can re-record the phrase or deleted the shortcut.

Please select the appropriate option

With Siri Shortcuts, you can control your air treatment machine(s) using your voice. You can create, edit and delete your own personalised commands, which can be activated through your mobile or tablet.

Please select the appropriate option

Each Siri Shortcut is unique to the machine it was created on and cannot be applied across multiple machines.

You’ll need to create different Siri Shortcuts for each machine and a new personalised phrase will need to be recorded.

Should a personalised phrase be recorded across multiple machines, Siri will display these on your device as selectable options, along with a machine identifier.

If you have multiple machines using the Siri Shortcut feature, we recommend making each phrase unique. For example, if one machine is located in the kitchen and another is in the bedroom, include these locations in the phrase.

Please select the appropriate option

Siri Shortcuts can be used in any region where Apple supports Siri. To see if this is supported in your region, please visit the Apple website.

Please select the appropriate option

You can activate Siri Shortcuts on the Dyson Link app in one of two ways:

  1. Simply say, “Hey Siri”, followed by the pre-recorded personalised phrase.*
  2. By pressing your mobile or tablet’s ‘Home’ button to activate Siri, and then saying the pre-recorded personalised phrase when prompted.

Either way, you’ll need to be logged into the Dyson Link app.

*This option will needs Siri to be enabled in your phone or tablet’s Siri settings.

Please select the appropriate option

Siri Shortcuts is available on iOS 12 or later.

Wi-Fi connection issues

WiFi connection issues

It is important to ascertain if the issue is with Alexa/Echo, or with the Dyson product. Try asking Alexa a general question, such as 'Alexa, what is the weather for tomorrow?'

Operate your Dyson machine manually - use the remote or controls to turn the purifier on, or press the power button on the robot.

Echo’s connectivity status is indicated by the power LED on the bottom rear of the device, with white meaning good and orange denoting no WiFi connectivity. If you are experiencing intermittent connectivity or non-existent WiFi connectivity with your Amazon Echo, here's what to try.

First, reboot your router and turn your Echo off and on again, waiting at least 10 minutes to give time for them to reconnect. Whilst waiting, you can also try re-positioning your Echo away from devices that may be interfering with the signal.

You can also reduce the congestion on your WiFi network by removing unused devices from the network.
If you have a dual-band modem, you may effectively have two networks set up. Try switching the device from the 2.4GHz frequency to the 5GHz frequency or vice-versa.

5GHz promises less interference, better speeds and a more stable connection and it is often less congested.


Alternatively, 2.4GHz can better for devices that may be further away from the router, especially if the signal has to pass through walls.

Move your Echo to higher ground, like a bookshelf, to avoid signal interference.

Please select the appropriate option

Installing and setting up Alexa

To get started with Amazon Echo, place the device in a central location (at least eight inches, or 20cm, from any walls and windows). Plug the power adapter into Amazon Echo and then into a power outlet. The light ring on Amazon Echo turns blue and then orange. When the light turns orange, Amazon Echo greets you.

Next, you'll need to download the Alexa app. Go to the app store on your mobile device and search for 'Alexa app'. Then select and download the app. Launch the Alexa app and ensure the account details are filled out. In the Alexa app, open the top left menu. Select 'Settings', then 'Set up a new device'. On the top of your Echo, press and hold the 'Action' button for five seconds. The light ring turns orange and Echo will connect to your mobile device.

Back on the Alexa app, select home WiFi network and enter your home WiFi password. Select 'Connect'. A confirmation message will appear in the app.

Tip: If your Amazon Echo doesn't connect to your WiFi network, unplug and then plug the device into a power outlet to restart it. If you still have trouble, reset your Amazon Echo to its factory settings and set it up again.

Try talking to Alexa. You'll find that you can now use your Amazon Echo device. To get started, say the 'wake word' (Alexa) and then speak naturally to Alexa. Once you've set-up the Dyson skill, remember to use the trigger word (Dyson), pre-empted by the command 'ask/tell'. For example, "Alexa, ask Dyson purifier to turn on".

Your Amazon Echo device is set to respond to the wake word "Alexa" by default, but you can use the Alexa app to change the wake word at any time. In the app, go to 'Settings', select your Amazon Echo device and then select 'Wake Word'.

Connecting for different product combinations:

If you have the Dyson Link app and Alexa app both installed, and your Dyson machine and Amazon Echo are both connected, but your Dyson skill is not enabled:

Ask Alexa to enable the Dyson skill, or search for Dyson in the skills section of the Alexa app. Then select the 'Enable skill' button. Allow the Alexa skill to access your Dyson Link app account. Enter your Dyson Link app account details and select 'Allow' on the confirmation screen.

If you have the Dyson Link app installed, your Dyson machine is connected but the Alexa app is not installed and your Amazon Echo is not connected:

First, check the WiFi signal strength where your Amazon Echo is positioned, by using a device known to be working. Remember to place your Amazon Echo at least eight inches away from any walls or windows, in a central location. Ensure the power adapter is plugged in and switched on.

The light ring on the Amazon Echo will turn blue then orange. When the light turns orange, Alexa greets you. Next, download the Alexa app to set-up your Amazon Echo.

In the Alexa app, open the main menu and select 'Settings' and then 'Set up a new device'. Press and hold the 'Action' button on your Amazon Echo for five seconds. The light ring will turn orange and Echo will connect to your mobile device.

Next, select your WiFi network and enter your WiFi password. Then press 'Connect'. A confirmation message will display in the app.

Please select the appropriate option

Controlling multiple machines

If you have more than one Alexa-controlled Dyson machine, your voice commands should make it clear which one you want to control. You can include a word like 'purifier', 'fan' or 'robot' in your command so Alexa knows which one you mean.

If you have two or more similar machines, like a purifier in your kitchen and another in your bedroom, you can assign location labels to differentiate your machines.

Navigate to your machine's settings by selecting the cog icon on your machine's status screen. From here, select 'Your machine's settings'. If you're using a purifier, select 'Room name' and choose the appropriate location. If you're using a robot, choose 'Robot name' and select a room from the predefined list.

Please select the appropriate option

Enable/Disable Dyson skill

If you own an Amazon Alexa-enabled device, you can control and monitor your Dyson connected machines using your voice. Simply enable the Dyson skill to do this.

To enable the Dyson skill, begin by saying the following: "Alexa, enable the Dyson skill." Alexa will respond: "OK, I've enabled the Dyson skill for you, but it requires you to link your Dyson account." Next, in the Alexa app, search for Dyson skill. Then select 'Enable' and follow the on-screen instructions to link your accounts.

To disable the Dyson skill, search for Dyson skill in the Alexa app and choose 'Disable skill'.

Please select the appropriate option

Please select the appropriate option

Closer connection

Move your purifier as close as possible to your router, to ensure maximum signal strength.

Please switch the machine off at the wall and wait 6 seconds before switching it back on.

If this has not resolved the issue you have been experiencing, please continue to the next step.

Factory reset

Press and hold the power button on the machine for approximately 20 seconds.

The WiFi light will flash both green and white in a rapid sequence of flashing lights, before switching itself off.

Once this sequence has been completed, the machine will have been reset and you can release the power button.
