Imagine saying "Alexa, it's bed-time" and the TV gets turned off, the front door locks, the garage door closes, the curtains get drawn, all the lights in the house dim 80%, and the security cameras start recording. Smart Home technologies have been around for decades, but customer adoption of Smart Home automation and connectivity has accelerated with the introduction of Amazon's Alexa family of devices such as the Echo. Now you no longer need to imagine -- the capability exists today.
