Alexa in Ceylon? Hello Echo Dot users

I recently had the pleasure of Alexa’s company with an Echo dot in Singapore. She was quite convenient for music and I’m thinking of getting one for me down here. Does anyone have any Alexa experience over here? Planning on mostly using for music, lights, weather, audible and timer.

Im using Alexa at home. I mostly use her to control the lights, set timers, wake me up, add stuff to my to do list, and give me updates about Amazon deliveries.

Occasionally we use her to randomly play music when we're not home to make it seem like there are people at home. She has this guard dog feature where she can play sounds of a dog barking too.

We are still in the process of making all our other gadgets compatible with Alexa. :)

Yup. The guard dog is a skill we added just to test. I've also added a skill to control my media library (ex: ask Alexa to play a movie on the tv). But I don't use it that much.

You can browse for skills here: https://www.amazon.com/alexa-skills/b/ref=topnav_storetab_a2s?ie=UTF8&node=13727921011

There are some very useful stuff you can add.

You can add many skills to Alexa https://www.amazon.co.uk/b?node=10068517031&ref=alxvm_uk_go_1593 including Spotify for music if you are a fan. Also sync Alexa with your calendar etc part from home automation stuff. Look for "Alexa compatible" on Amazon (Amazon Certified) or eBay should you wish extend home automation capabilities.

NB: It's now called Sri Lanka not Ceylon!!! (lol :-))
