Dyson Link app and connectivity

If this is your first time connecting, please select 'Connection journey troubleshooting'.

If you have already connected but are experiencing issues with your app, please select 'Post connection troubleshooting'

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 downlaod 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 Wi-Fi network and enter your home Wi-Fi password. Select 'Connect'. A confirmation message will appear in the app.

Tip: If your Amazon Echo doesn't connect to your Wi-Fi 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), preempted 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 Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi network and enter your Wi-Fi password. Then press 'Connect'. A confirmation message will display in the app.

Wi-Fi 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 product 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 Wi-Fi connectivity. If you’re experiencing intermittent connectivity or non-existent Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi 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.

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.

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'.

Currently, the Dyson skill and voice control for Dyson connected machines are available in the UK, US, Canada, Germany and India only.

Continuous monitoring

The continuous monitoring option is used for air quality, temperature and humidity data to be relayed to the machine and app at all times, even when you have turned the purifier off.

The sensors have small fans that maintain airflow for continuous monitoring, but this should not cause any audible noise interference.

There may be instances when the display shows green, indicating high air quality, but the fan speed is still high.

This is due to the machine constantly seeking to maintain a good air quality, and in scenarios such as rooms with leaky windows, the machine must work harder to maintain a good air quality.

This will only happen when the machine is set on auto. To turn off auto mode, please select manual mode, either using the remote control or on the app.

Please check the following on the app:

Swipe up to reveal the setting tab and tap to open options.

Swipe down to find the continuous monitoring option and tap to open.

Turn off the 'Collect data when in standby' option. (The icon will turn grey when turned off). Save the change by pressing 'Done' at the top right of the page.

Continuous monitoring can now also be turned on/off by pressing the the 'Auto' button on the remote control for five seconds.

Change of ownership

This indicates that another user has claimed ownership of the purifier by registering it to their own account.

Only one individual can claim ownership of a certain purifier serial number. When someone adds a purifier to an account within the Dyson Link app, any previous user information will be wiped and an email notification sent to confirm the change.

NB: If you wish to have more than one device control the same purifier, each device will need to use the same Dyson Link app log in details.

Has someone else in your household registered the purifier?

Check that your mobile/tablet device has the latest version of the app installed.

Ensure that the device is also running the latest version of it's operating system.

Has updating the app resolved the problem?

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.

Re-program the instruction (e.g. schedule) to test the machine.

Has reinstalling the app resolved the problem?

WiFi troubleshooting

Please run through the following checks:

Is your router broadcasting a 2.4GHz network?

All Dyson connected machines use Wi-Fi 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 the 2.4 GHz band. Many modern routes support both bands - this is known as a dual band router.

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

How to check is 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 are unsure about how to, 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 5GHz bands. This will allow you to broadcast the right network, to allow you to connect.

The purifier will only connect to the 2.4 GHz network. Your phone will need to be connected to the same network as the purifier 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 2.4GHz. 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 purifier 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?

What connection?

Same WiFi network as the appliance

A different WiFi network

A mobile network such as 3G/4G
