WeMo and Philips Hue products now work with Amazon Echo. You can now use Echo to switch on the lamp before getting out of bed, turn on the fan or heater while reading in your favorite chair, or dim the lights from the couch to watch a movie—all without lifting a finger…or even raising your voice. ” After Echo’s confirmation, you can control your devices by voice. “Alexa, turn on the hallway light” “Alexa, turn on the coffee maker” “Alexa, dim the living room lights to 20%” “Alexa, turn on the electric blanket” “Alexa, turn on the outdoor decorations” You can now use Echo to switch on the lamp before... WeMo: Switch, Insight Switch, and Light Switch Hue: A19, Lux, BR30, Bloom, and LightStrip lights As always, the Amazon Echo team looks forward to your feedback via the Amazon Echo App and on social media (#AmazonEcho). Of course, this also reinforces the need for some sort of voiceprinting in the future… as anyone can currently control or override the Amazon Echo, including guests or children, etc. Stacey Higginbotham also raises a good point – can we effectively group bulbs into rooms or areas via Hue app for effective management thru Echo as opposed to offloading that sort of stuff to say a Staples Connect. We’ll see if it arrives when it’s supposed to. I’m curious as to how the Echo discovers WeMo and Philips Hue products.
This marks my second year of being able to celebrate Filipino holidays like a normal person – I worked in one of the country’s top BPOs for over four years so I never really got to enjoy the luxury of the Holy Week for the first four years of my... I get the feeling that my bed’s been feeling neglected and I planned to spend at least the first day of the long weekend rectifying that problem. At least I planned to. . After a (relatively) late breakfast I found that JackTV ran their “Break Up With The Internet” campaign where they ran full season marathons of their top rated shows, and season 3 of Arrow was slated for the whole of... A compromise: since I had seen more or less all of the episodes up until the mid-season break, I inserted a nap until the afternoon where I stayed in front of the television until late in the evening. Among other things, the experience made me realize that one of the most painful things in life is setting up the alarm clock during your days off. I tried to watch the first few episodes of season 1 and while I was initially caught up with the chemistry between Oliver and Thea (it’s incest, but he had more chemistry than Laurel, come on), the novelty sort of wore off.
Dueteronomy 11:18-21 What if one reason so many reject Christianity, including my brother in law, is because our religious traditions are so mixed up with pagan symbolism and mythology that they don't care to try to sort them out and find out if... Because when we speak with Tyler, when we have been able to have a conversation as equals (not preachy judgmental forced participation which often happens at these religious family gatherings) one thing he often points out is how mixed up... He seems better educated about why modern Christians celebrate and what their celebrations mean than most Christians. Are we so in love with the idea of chocolate bunnies that we embrace them and make the excuse 'It doesn't mean that to me' or ' We are no longer under the law' even to the detriment of the lost. Are our hearts so hardened with greed and lust that we can turn a blind eye to the harm we are causing, the harm we are perpetuating, and say - "It's their own fault they don't know the truth. I want to serve him and show my love for him in all that I do. I am the humbled, lowly, honored that he loves me. I am unworthy of such love and could never do anything to earn it - so I rejoice in a love that came and found me, pursued me, and...
