Once upon a time people had to actually get up and move around in order to control the various gadgets and gizmos around their houses. Those were some dark times, indeed. It’s 2017, and the need to touch a device or even lift a finger in order to control it are long gone thanks to smart solutions like Alexa. Amazon’s virtual personal assistant powers every Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, and it can be used to control most smart gadgets these days. In fact, which a nifty little device like the TP-Link Smart Plug, Alexa can even be used to control “dumb” devices, too.
