Amazon Alexa

Alexa, the voice service that powers Echo, provides capabilities, or skills, that enable customers to interact with devices in a more intuitive way using voice. Delight your customers by enabling them to control connected smart home devices via voice. Now you can easily teach Alexa to control your cloud-controlled lighting, thermostats, and more so customers can simply say, “Alexa, turn on the kitchen lights” or “Alexa, turn up the heat.” When you use the Smart Home Skill API, you connect directly to these capabilities so that customers can control lights, switches, smart plugs or thermostats—without lifting a finger.
