These voice control smart assistant-speakers are very handy for quickly controlling home automation devices, playing music, and looking up information on the Internet.

 Some of the the things I can say are:

  • Alexa turn on television - this turns on my AV receiver, cable box and television; switches input to U-verse; turns off lights in the kitchen and family room then turns on a led lighting strip and dims it to 50%
  • Alexa play thumbprint radio - this connects to my Pandora account and plays my Thumbprint Radio channel on all my Echo Dots.
  • Alexa turn off living room lights - this turns off the living room lights
