Automating everything!

Updated April 3, 2018

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 – I currently have two, but not sure where to connect the second one
  • Wemo – was used to turn on my Christmas Tree lights, however, now it’s not currently used
  • Rachio – smart Irrigation controller (a side blog post is coming about this device).

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