Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
Amazon Echo has been around for a couple of years now and as
you probably already know, you're able to control lights, music,
and more using voice commands with Alexa. Well, now there is
a smart light switch with Amazon Alexa built-in to it.
Introducing the EcoBee Switch+!
With the Switch+, you're able to go hands-free when you need
it most. It is the first smart light switch to come with a
built-in Alexa. You can ask to control your lights, help you
out with a task, play music or podcasts, or control other
voice-enabled devices in your home.
Here are some voice command examples you can say with the
- Alexa, what's the weather?
- Alexa, turn off the lights.
- Alexa, pump up the jam.
- Alexa, set a timer.
- And so much more!
The Switch+ is available for pre-order now. Visit
