Automate your daily home routines with Amazon Alexa.  See how.

Amazon Alexa can do a lot more than set a timer and play music.  The voice assistant can complete multiple, consecutive tasks with a single voice command. Here’s how.

From the Alexa mobile app, tap the menu then Routines.  Create a new routine and designate a voice or time trigger.  “Start my day”.  Then add multiple actions such as getting today’s weather, traffic, and then play music. When you say your trigger word each action happens consecutively. (Pause for 3)

If you own Alexa supported devices you can include their task such as: turn down the lights and thermostat.  Routines are useful for morning, night or when you leave the house.
