Alexa is a Game Changer

Gone are the days of expensive environmental control units. Thanks to Amazon Echo, I can now control my lamp with the sound of my voice. You can buy smart plugs that turn your dumb appliances into smart appliances that can communicate with Alexa. What I mean is you can take a standard Appliance and buy a smart plug and now your Appliance can now communicate with Alexa. The instructions for a little complicated, but it was easier once I started to fiddle around with the app myself. YouTube was valuable for setting up Alexa. I plan to get more smart plugs so I can control my appliances via Alexa. Now I can turn on lights in my apartment without asking for help. My next piece will be automatic curtains. The small things insignificant to an able-bodied person, but you’re person with a disability the small things are major victories.

A Nifty little Gadget find

Sometimes I would forget to tell my attendance to turn on my floor lamp in the living room and I would be left in the dark. Sometimes I would run and get my neighbor to do it, but I didn’t want to keep bothering him. I found this Nifty little gadgets on Amazon. All you do is plug the little Outlet into an outlet and it comes with a remote. Just remember to switch the lamp in the on position or it will not work. The gadget was only $11. I hope this find is helpful to other people in my predicament.
