Amazon has a new service for your Echo/Alexa device called Alexa Blueprints. It’s similar to the IFTTT service which allows you to create an auction to an action by another device or request by you.
You can even create instructions for visitors, babysitter or your dog walker. I’ve been playing around with it for the better part of a day, and while most of the blueprints that I can create aren’t really for me. I think for a lot of people they will be useful.
