The surprise hit use of Amazon Echo's voice assistant "Alexa", has become the ability to control the electronics in your house. It's what techies like to call Home Automation. The idea is that you control the electronics in your house from your Echo by giving voice commands. For example, you can walk into a room and say:
- "Alexa, turn on the living room light"
- "Alexa, turn on the TV"
- "Alexa, turn on all lights upstairs"
- "Alexa, turn everything off"
- "Alexa, set the bedroom light to purple"
What makes this so wonderful is that it can be done hands-free. When you get home and the house is dark, and your hands are loaded with bags, a simple verbal command can turn light your way through the entire house. Read More >>> about How to control your home with Echo and Alexa
