Set up Amazon Alexa to control Layer3 TV

See a video of this procedure.

For Alexa to work with your Layer3 TV service, you'll need the following:

  • A device that supports Alexa, such as an Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, and an Amazon account. If you haven't yet set up your Alexa device, you can find instructions on the Amazon Device Support page.
  • A phone, tablet, or computer with the Amazon Alexa App installed
  • A Layer3 TV Set-Top Box or Lite Box

Let's get started!

1. Get the Layer3 TV Alexa skill

Open the Alexa mobile app or the Alexa web app and log in using your Amazon account credentials.

3. Link your Alexa-enabled device to a TV

Ask Alexa to link or pair your Alexa-enabled device.  You can say:

  • Alexa, ask Layer3 to link my device.

Or you can also say:

  • Alexa, ask Layer3 to pair.

Alexa will respond, asking you to select a TV.   If you have several TVs in your household, you may see the Alexa Device Linking message on different TVs.  Select Yes on the TV you wish to control.

You'll see a confirmation message on the linked TV. Click OK to continue.

Your Alexa device can now control the linked TV.  If you want to have Alexa communicate with a different TV, say, "Alexa, ask Layer3 to link my device," and follow the steps above to link to the new TV.
