So I recently bought an Amazon echo dot($49 amazon.com) for the house. My wife and I have been looking for more ways to use “Alexa,” the voice feature of the echo dot. Wow! Who knew there were so many options ? Not us. Originally we used it hilarious jokes ,news & weather reports. So I have started to make our home some what smart 🙂 . If you are wording what the what, let me explain. We already had apps to control our home thermostat similar to nest. And now that has been added to the echo dot voice command. I also added  hue hub(by Phillips), Phillips bulbs & dimmer remote. Several lights in several rooms can now be accessed by app or the the echo dot voice command. This is amazing!! Well at least we think so anyway. No hard wiring involved, very easy to setup. I would highly recommend it. I think we are gonna add some motion sensors next or maybe a Ring doorbell(Ring.com). Not sure yet and still the inner geek in me is overly excited
