Automating everything!

For the past year or so, I have tried to automate as many items in my personal and work life as I could. Below is a short list of the products I am currently using.


  • Amazon Echo — I have a total of 3 throughout the house
  • Google Home
  • Google WiFi
  • Zapier — mostly to automate work tasks
  • Nest thermostat
  • Ring doorbell
  • Hue Lights (6 lamps, 2 mantle lights and one strip)
  • Harmony Hub — not only does this give me one remote that works with all my devices, but I can also use my voice to turn the devices on as well. :)
  • Logitech Circle
  • Wemo — was used to turn on my Christmas Tree lights, however, now it’s not currently used

If you have suggestions of other products I should try, please leave a comment.
