When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

So people do their own home automation in cortana. His setup is barebones but wonder how he does this. I love the first comment, LOL. But most of them ask him how he did it, he did not reply.  :-\

Ok, clicking related links, they use  Windows IOT Core. Never heard of it but most related links and like this link, very interesting that all of them experimenting on  Windows IOT Core are foreigners.

There are several ways you can do Home Automation with a Windows PC via software and usually a PC interface of some sort, though more recently with the cloud the internet and Wi-Fi is the common connection.
Windows IOT Core is just a stripped down Windows (barebones PC of sorts)

Some protocols have APIs or SDKs which anyone with some programing knowledge can create A home automation setup.
I've create several X10 home automation programs though not yet interfaced directly with Cortana.
