This is our current and up-to-date Alexa-compatible devices list for 2023. If it’s on this list, it works with Alexa. Each product link will take you to view Amazon’s current pricing.

Things to look out for:

  • Some products will require a hub or bridge to connect to Alexa, while others can connect directly to your Wi-Fi network. Each of those products is noted in the descriptions below.
    • For those products that do need a hub/bridge, you will only need 1 per system.
  • When comparing products, consider using the same brands for lighting so that you can keep everything under one app. The same should go for cameras and video doorbells.
  • Some brands will have some models that aren’t Alexa compatible, so be sure to double-check any product listings before making a purchase.
