  • Download the Alexa app for your ipad and sign in. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/amazon-alexa/id944011620?mt=8
  • Plug in your included power cord to your echo dot and the wall outlet. The light ring on Echo Dot turns blue, and then orange. When the light turns orange, Alexa greets you.
  • Connect Echo Dot to a Wi-Fi network. In the Alexa app, follow the instructions to connect Echo Dot to a Wi-Fi network.
    • If the setup process does not automatically start, press and hold the Action button on Echo Dot until the light ring turns orange. Then, open the Alexa app, and go to Settings > Set up a new device.
    • If Echo Dot doesn't connect to your Wi-Fi network, restart Echo Dot by unplugging and plugging the device in again. If you still have trouble, reset your Echo Dot to its factory settings and set it up again. To learn more, go to Reset Your Echo Device.
  • Talk to Alexa.
    • You can now use your Echo device. To get started, say the "wake word" and then speak naturally to Alexa. Your Echo device is set to respond to the wake word "Alexa" by default, but you can change it at any time. To change the wake word by voice, you can say, "Change the wake word."You can also make this change in the Alexa app, by going to Settings, selecting your Echo device, and then selecting Wake word.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
