    Certainly it is easier to use a Google Home or Alexa, or even just wifi smart plugs, etc. My only 'real' issue with those devices and services is privacy, I personally do want Google to track my bathroom habits when I turn lights on and off :-P

    Hey, if Amazon reminds me to order TP because it thinks I'm running out based on the amount of times my bathroom lights go on/off, they deserve my business.

    LOL, Facebook location services already does that

    It's not that they offer the service. I think people would do less bitching
    if it were opt-in, instead of opt-out.
