Using Alexa to Control Power


 

 

Compatible Devices

This applies to DLI WiFi products like the Ethernet Power Controller 5the Pro Switch. and the DIN Relay.
Echo, Dot and Tap are supported via Belkin emulation.  Firmware 1.3.9.0 or higher is required.

 

 

 


Setup

First, be sure that your Echo is fully set up and has access to your network.

Log in to your power controller to set outlet/device names and enable UPnP.


Select the External APIs link from the power controller menu. Press Submit.




Under UPnP outlet binding configuration, check to enable the outlets that Echo to will control.
Set "Profile" for each outlet to belkin_wemo. Press Submit.



 


Finally, tell Echo to “discover devices”.  If the total count is short, repeat the discovery step.

That's all there is to it!


Test your new app, "Alexa, turn on the Car Charger!"

 

*Currently the Gen2 and Gen3 devices are not working with switching on the power controllers. We are working on a solution.
In the mean time, you can use IFTTT to control DLI power controllers.
