Alexa Will Helps in Waking You Up


Alexa can help to start the morning routine before you wake up. Customize a schedule on Alexa to Switch on lights slowly in the morning and start brewing coffee. When you get up, greet Alexa, and say “hey, good morning” to activate the morning routine. Set actions to perform so that Alexa can read the weather, give the email summary and run down the calendar for the day as well as read you the news.

Making the Travel More Enjoyable


Playing your favorite track to wake you up. You can ask Alexa to play your wake-me-up song and also read the traffic report if you are living in a busy city.

Add command like “Alexa; I’m commuting to work.” Users can also add actions like turn off the smart lights and plugs.

Switch on the Lights When You Reach Home


It is better to reach home with bright lights rather than moving on the stairs and finding the switch. You can set the voice routine to act for this as well. You have to select the Click on Location from options and input the address so reaching near your home will activate the routine.

Falling Asleep Faster


When you are in bed and ready to sleep, then you can start the bedtime routine by using the phrase to activate. Command Alexa like Alexa, I’m willing to sleep, and you must be sure that you have enabled the action like Alexa, turn off the lights. If you face problems falling asleep, then you can use relaxing music or maybe rain sounds as well.
