Interesting development with Amazon Echo, voice driven “personal assistant”. This could certainly make it more usable. They should open it up for ZWave and MiCasa integration too. Hopefully future stealth upgrades will bring more goodies.
Initially, Echo will support WeMo’s Switch, Insight Switch, and Light Switch and Hue’s A19, Lux, BR30, Bloom, and LightStrip lights, the email advised. But these are likely only the first of more product integrations yet to come, as Amazon tries to position Echo as more than an always-on assistant, but also an interface to the “connected home.”
