We're new to the smart home game but have outfitted most lights in my home with Lutron Caseta switches, Philips Hue bulbs, and iHome iSP6 plugs. We are primarily an Apple home but have and Echo and two Dots spread across the house because lets face it, Alexa > Siri.

The one thing Apple has up on Amazon however for the smart home is their Home app. It's so easy to create scenes where you easily make a scene like "TV Time" that will turn on or off whatever you want. I've found this next to impossible to do with the Alexa app. Through groups I can make everything come on or off that I want to however I can't seem to selectively multiple things to go on and/or off with a single command.

I feel like I must be missing something. Help!!!
 
The Logitech Harmony Hub products are compatible with the Lutron and may allow for the scene control you want

Certainly the more sophisticated home control systems such as URC, RTI, Control4 and Crestron would allow for unlimited scene control. These are meant to be programmed by someone experienced so even if you could get the software the learning curve would be long.
