Amazon Echo

just installed one, and wondering what to use it for once we get bored with  Alexa, open the pod bay doors and Alexa, may the Force be with you..

music is a no brainer - that's up and running but we don't have any internet of Things household gadgets yet that it can operate. what cheapo ones should we consider for starters. ( i.e. less expensive than the harmony hub )

Grandchildren are here this weekend, so expecting a lot of Alexa, why did the chicken cross the road, and Alexa, tell me a Joke.

Re: Amazon Echo

Here are some for the grandchildren. 

Where do Alexa's come from?

Then who makes Alexa's?

Seriously depends how good your are with IT, you could take a look at the Raspberrys Pi's, I have four which run things like my watering system for the garden, web server, mail server and X10 lights controller. All very easy to automate.
