Voice Command Controls for Devices, Systems and Functions
In the very recent past the development of personal assistants (like Alexa) and their ability to "talk to" mechanical devices, switches, controllers and household systems has taken the quality of life game to another level.
"Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights", "Alexa, set the temperature to 72 degrees" "Alexa, show me the front door camera", "Alexa, call Marlin"
Voice commands can even set off a sequence of events, for example you could say "Alexa, it's bedtime" and Alexa would lock the front door, turn off the TV, turn off some lights, turn on other lights". The options are almost endless.
For some people the voice command capability is just cool! For others with physical limitations the impact on the quality of life is profound!
