    Hmm I wonder if you can use your location on your phone as a trigger? So as you drive up to the house, Alexa opens the garage, then when you walk into the house she turns on the lights. Might be cool to explore.
    Not yet, but that's on my list of things to look at.

    rats, it can only see a large area for your location, not a specific room.

    I work with a young girl named Alexa (though everyone calls her Lexa for short), and she's quite fun to work with. Some time I ought to ask her how she feels about being named after a robot.

    I need to teach her about being a pirate. She can already sing a pirate song. Now I have to teach her how to pillage and swab the deck and hoist the mainsail.
