Enabling the Dyson skill

Using the Alexa App on your mobile device or the Amazon website, search for "Dyson Skill". Once it appears, select the Dyson Skill and enable it.

You will be prompted to log in to your Dyson account. You should use the account you connected your machine with via the Dyson Link app.

Once you have logged in, follow the on-screen instructions to link Alexa to your Dyson machines.

Has this resolved your query?

How does Alexa identify my machine?

Alexa identifies Dyson machines using their room name. The room name is set when you first connect your machine with the Dyson Link app and can be changed using the Link app as well. A list of preset room names are available in the Dyson Link app, such as 'Bedroom' or 'Kitchen'.

For convenience, you can also rename your machine using the Alexa app. However, this does not affect the room name in the Dyson Link app or how you control your machine with voice commands.

To control a specific Dyson machine using voice commands, you can either directly name the machine in your first command or wait for Alexa to ask which machine you are referring to.

If you ask "Alexa, enable auto mode on Bedroom.", Alexa will identify the 'Bedroom' machine and enable the auto mode for it.

If you ask "Alexa, enable auto mode.", Alexa will ask which machine you want to enable the auto mode for.

Has this resolved your query?

Disabling the Dyson Skill

You can disconnect Alexa from your Dyson account and machines by disabling the Dyson skill. You can disable the Dyson Skill using the Alexa app or Amazon website.

Please note that you will need to log in to your Dyson account again if you choose to re-enable the skill.

Has this resolved your query?

Check if Alexa heard you

If Alexa did not respond to your most recent request, what you said may not have been recognised as a question or command. To make sure Alexa recognises your request, speak clearly and ensure you are close enough to your Echo device for her to hear you.

To check if Alexa is able to hear you, ask "Alexa, did you hear me?".

Has this resolved the problem?

Check your Echo device

If Alexa is still not responding, please check the following:

  • Make sure you are using the power adaptor that was included with your Echo device.
  • Make sure you have an active internet connection.
  • Ensure your Echo device isn't muted. The indicator light will be red when the device is muted.
  • Move your Echo device to another location away from walls, speakers and other sources of background noise.
  • Unplug your Echo device and plug it back in.

If Alexa is able to hear you, your Echo device should light up with a blue ring after saying "Alexa" to indicate she is listening. If your device has a screen, this will be shown as a blue bar on the display.

Has this resolved the problem?

Reset your password

If you are unable to log in and link your Dyson account, you may need to reset your password. Select the forgotten password link on the log in screen to be taken through the reset process.

If the password has recently been changed, a 30 minutes period will need to pass before you are able to log back into the Dyson Link app account.

Multiple failures logging into the account (4 or more) will result in the account becoming locked. The account will remain locked for a 30 minute period.

Has this resolved the problem?

Check for device or setup issues

In order for Alexa to discover your Dyson machine, it must be connected via the Dyson Link app and the Dyson Skill needs to be enabled.

If your machine has not been connected with the Dyson Link app, select the connection journey option to go through these steps.

Your Dyson machine and your Echo device should both be connected to the same Wi-Fi network to allow for discovery.

Has this resolved the problem?

Check your machine

Turn off your Dyson machine at the wall for 10 seconds. Then turn it back on.

Do the same with your Echo device.

Check that your machine is online by viewing it in the Dyson Link app.

Check the Dyson skill

In the Alexa app on your mobile device, disable and then re-enable the Dyson Skill.

You will need to log into your Dyson account again after re-enabling the the Dyson Skill.

Has this resolved the problem?

Ask Alexa what she heard

Alexa may have misheard you or misinterpreted something you said as a request. To understand why Alexa just did something, say "Alexa, why did you do that?" or "Alexa, what did you do?".

You can also ask Alexa to read back your most recent request by saying "Alexa, what's the last thing you heard?" or "Alexa, what did you hear?".

You can also view Alexa's activity in the Alexa app on your mobile device. The activity log shows utterances that Alexa heard, responses she gave and actions she took.

Has this resolved the problem?

Alexa learns the more it is used and is always improving its natural voice recognition. Ease of use will improve over time, however some utterances and commands may need to be in a specific format for Alexa to recognise them.

For example, instead of asking "Alexa, turn on oscillation mode.", try asking "Alexa, turn on oscillation.".

This approach can work with other commands as well. Instead of "Alexa, turn on heating mode.", you can ask "Alexa, turn heat on.".

Has this resolved your query?

What are some of the things I can do with Alexa?

There are different kinds of directives that users can use to interact with Alexa. Here are some examples:

Turn settings on and off

How does Google Assistant discover my machine?

When you first connect your Dyson machine to the Dyson Link app you'll give it a room name. You'll find a list of pre-set room names in the app, such as 'Bedroom' or 'Kitchen'. Google Assistant uses this room name to identify your machine.

Google Assistant uses this to name your machine in the Google Home app as well.

How do I control an individual Dyson machine?

To control an individual Dyson machine using voice commands, you can either directly name the machine in your command or say the room name the machine is assigned to in the Google Home app.

If you say "Hey Google, enable auto mode in the Bedroom", Google Assistant will identify the machine named 'Bedroom' or a machine in the bedroom and enable auto mode.

Saying "Hey Google, enable auto mode", will enable auto mode for any purifiers in your current room, if the room is set up in the Google Home app.
