As the cold winter arrives in the north east I am happy to stay warm at home searching for new technology and projects. This is the time of year when we've seen all the new products looking for a place under a Christmas tree.
I've been enjoying my Amazon Alexa devices and remain amazed at the possibilities. I look forward to using the Alexa communication features once Santa gives new devices to friends and family. Lately, when I visit a new Alexa owner I teach them about all the free prime music by instructing, "Alexa... play Dominick the Christmas Donkey."
As someone dealing with disabilities, Alexa is a must-have device. Combine it with a friendly, programmable app like IFTTT and you have a "comfort device." I frequently use the Alexa timer function and by hooking it up with IFTTT I can flash multiple colors from my LIFX LED light in the hallway.
