    Home Automation

    Hi all,

    For the last couple of years I have been building up my home automation technology and other associated gadget items. I have always been a fan of tech and when I started to lose the use of my limbs I was able to compensate for some of this with the use of various electronic devices. Because I still have speech they are centred around a smart speaker system and I do understand that many members use eye gaze technology which may not be compatible with some of this.
    Below is a brief list of some of the things I have and I wonder if other members would like further information on any of the systems:

    Amazon Echo smart speakers (Alexa)
    Ring doorbell
    Hive heating
    Smart plugs (for lighting control)
    Housemate voice controls for profile bed (also an app)
    Harmony voice controls for TV (also an app)
    Speech to text and other accessibility functions (iPhone/iPad)
    Air quality monitoring
    Amazon Echo Connect (links your landline to Alexa)
