In our house, someone is always listening to our conversations and while it may sound creepy, we love that our Amazon Echo can hear us. Named Alexa, our Echo sits in our kitchen where she sits, listens, and awakens when she hears her name and responds to the commands that follow. She’s full of practical information and can speak the current weather, news, and traffic when asked, serves as a hands-free way we can shuffle our music and even serves as our in-house DJ taking song requests, and the kids are having the most fun with her by asking random questions. Thomas even asked if she would marry him but she gave him a very nebulous answer!
Alexa is pretty smart but she becomes even smarter when connected to smart home technology like an Echo compatible WeMo Switch. When Emily’s fingers are busy practicing the piano, she loves being able to command Alexa to turn on the light but Thomas had another idea to use Alexa to play a prank on his sister. Take a look!
