The Wyze thermostat makes it easier for us to manage the HVAC system, adjust the temperature and track energy consumption to shrink the bills.

But people want to make it easier than that and want to facilitate control by managing this device using their voice.

So they ask if this Wyze thermostat works with Amazon Alexa and how to connect them together.

The answer is yes, Wyze has done the same job as with other smart devices they have produced and made its thermostat compatible with Alexa.

In this blog post, I will talk more about this topic and show you how to connect them together in a few simple steps.

How To Connect Wyze Thermostat To Alexa?

Before connecting this device to Alexa, you need to make sure that the thermostat and the Alexa app are connected to the internet.

The second thing is that you need to properly configure the thermostat on its own app and create an account on the Alexa app if you don’t have one.

Now here are the steps to follow to connect them together:

  1. Open the Alexa app on your smartphone or tablet.
  2. login to your account.
  3. Tap on More at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  4. Then tap on Skills & Games and search for “Wyze”.
  5. Tap on “Wyze” and click Enable To Use.
  6. Enter your Wyze account credentials to authorize Alexa to access your Wyze account.
  7. Another screen will appear telling you that the account is successfully linked, tap on Close.
  8. After that click on Discover Devices to allow your thermostat to be used by Alexa.
  9. Go to Device to take control of your Wyze thermostat that was discovered by Amazon Alexa.

Now your Wyze thermostat is successfully linked to your Amazon Alexa account and can be controlled via different Alexa-enabled devices including the Echo smart speakers and displays, Fire TV, smartphones, tablets or via your smartwatches.

But there are additional things you need to know to properly use this integration and maximize its benefits.

The first thing I suggest after the successful pairing is to turn off the Do Not Disturb Mode on the Alexa app.

This will allow you to receive alerts and notifications when something is happening with the thermostat on your Alexa app and Echo devices.

Here are the steps to follow in order to disable this mode:

  1. On the Alexa app go to Devices.
  2. Then select “Echo & Alexa”.
  3. choose your device.
  4. Tap on “Do Not Disturb”.
  5. Then Turn Do Not Disturb off.

It is common for people to have more than one smart thermostat inside their home where each unit controls heating and cooling independently in order to heat or cool different areas of the house.

If you’re one of those people, I recommend giving each unit a different name so the Alexa voice assistant can easily identify which one you’re talking about.

Here’s how to change the Wyze thermostat name on the Alexa app:

  1. Open the Alexa app.
  2. Go to Devices at the bottom right of the screen.
  3. Select Thermostats at the top of the screen.
  4. Then select the Wyze thermostat you want to edit.
  5. Tap the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen.
  6. Tap Edit Name and rename your device.

Alexa’s Voice commands to Use With The Wyze Thermostat.

Pairing Alexa with a Wyze Thermostat lets you control it via your voice, which can be really useful if you find the app isn’t right for you.

Here I’m going to give you 20 commands that you can use to control the thermostat using the voice control feature.

Here are the voice commands:

  1. “Alexa, what’s the {thermostat or sensor name} temperature?”
  2. “Alexa, what is the {thermostat name} set to?”
  3. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} to {temperature}”.
  4. “Alexa, increase the {thermostat name} temperature”
  5. “Alexa, decrease the {thermostat name} temperature”
  6. “Alexa, raise the {thermostat name} temperature by {number} degrees”.
  7. “Alexa, lower the {thermostat name} temperature by {number} degrees”.
  8. “Alexa, tell {thermostat name} to resume the schedule”
  9. “Alexa, set the {thermostat name} to home”
  10. “Alexa, set the {thermostat name} to away”
  11. “Alexa, set the {thermostat name} to sleep”
  12. “Alexa, turn on {thermostat name} fan”
  13. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} fan to auto”
  14. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} fan to off”
  15. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} fan to on”
  16. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} fan to cycle”
  17. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} to Heat mode”
  18. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} to Cool mode”
  19. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} to Auto mode”
  20. “Alexa, set {thermostat name} to OFF mode”

Remove the Wyze account or the thermostat from the Alexa account.

You can unlink the Wyze account from Alexa if you found that the integration is useless and you wanna get rid of it.

All you have to do is open the Wyze app, go into your Account settings, then tap on “Works With” to unlink your Wyze account.

If you have multiple Wyze devices such as doorbells and cameras connected to Alexa and you want to remove only the thermostat, follow the next steps:

  1. Open the Alexa app.
  2. Select Devices.
  3. Go to Thermostats and select your Wyze thermostat.
  4. Then go to the device Settings.
  5. Then select Trash.

Final Words.

Finally, I want to say that integrating this device with Alexa has many benefits and can make it easier to control and manage your device, which can be useful for many of us.

That’s all I have to tell you about the relationship between Amazon Alexa and the Wyze Smart Thermostat. So I hope you found this article useful.
