What’s your favourite household appliance?

I think mine has to be the Amazon Alexa. There are probably 20 different ways I use Alexa at home, but here are five of my favourites:

  • We have an Alexa in our kitchen and one in each of our bedrooms. If I’m cooking or working at home, I can easily “drop in” on Flea upstairs, to let her know that dinner is ready, or to ask her to walk the dog.
  • On a daily basis, I use Alexa for timers, to do simple calculations, to check the weather and tell me the tide times at the local beach.
  • Then there’s the ability to play music from our Spotify account, and read Audio books from Audible.
  • Not forgetting that Amazon Alexa is linked to smart devices around the home so I can easily say, “Amazon turn the lounge lights on.”
  • Lastly, I love that when we travel, I can use Alexa to set routines that help keep our home secure. Alexa links to lightbulbs, smart plugs and home security cameras so I can turn lights on and off, play the radio, and double check that our security system is turned on, wherever we might be in the world.

This month I’m giving you the chance to win the Amazon Echo Show 5, the newest generation of Alexa home device.
