Amazon Echo

I bought and installed Amazon’s new “Echo” device and wired it all up to control various things in my home via voice commands. It was a snap to control the WeMo and HUE devices I had installed, and now, having a single spot to turn virtually ANYTHING on and off in my home by voice command is a reality. Lacking, though, was an effective way of controlling the entertainment center. I’ve built a solution to do just that. Now, I can say “Alexa, watch TV” or “Alexa, play XBOX” and it’s as wired and as easy as “Alexa, Turn on the Dining Room Light”. Interested?
