Alaxa smart bulbs smart plugs standard bulbs

Hi I have the Amazon Echo and two smart plugs for voice control to the smart bulbs.

What I did was plug an extension x 4 sockets to the mains socket plugged in two smart bulb lamps to the extension and all works well with the echo.

I have a lamp that has a standard Edison bulb in and plugged that into the extension. I asked Alaxa to turn on the lights and it also lit the Edison bulb.

I thought it wouldn't work not been a smart bulb.

I unplugged the two smart bulbs and asked alaxa to turn on at this point the Edison lamp didn't light.

The Edison lamp is now unplugged.

Any ideas why it worked.
