How to use echo to control smart home product
So I recently bought an Amazon Echo and a wintek smart plug and I heard that the two could be used together. After playing around with the two devices for a bit, I managed to figure out how to control my wintek smart plug by talking to Alexa on the Echo.
The great thing about using a wintek smart plug with the Echo is that it works without requiring you to install a third-party skill on the Echo or buying a hub. Many wintek devices can work directly with Alexa, like the wintek smart Switch, wintek smart bulb , wintek smart plug,wintek smart doorbell and so on .
You can follow these steps to use echo to control these smart products.Take using Wintek smart plug for example.
Configure wintek smart plug
The first thing you have to do is connect your wintek smart plug to your WiFi network and make sure it is showing up in the “smart life ”app. You should be able to turn it on and off using the virtual power button at the far right.
Open “smart life ”app,and register an account with your mobile phone number.

If the connection is successful,you can rename the smart plug.we rename it ”test smart plug ”.
All is right ,you can control the “test smart plug ” through app.
