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.

UK Based - Echo Dot and Smart Things integration help needed
« on: February 10, 2020, 08:06:27 am »
Just got an echo dot as a birthday present.

Want to start adding plug in sockets and light bulbs to it but also want to prepare for the future.

What brands would you recommend ?

Havenít got SmartThings yet but have been told as I expand it will help to have a hub

Will I also eventually need a bridge for the lights or will I need this from day 1 ?

Any advice welcomed as I donít want to waste money going down the wrong road.

I've been using Kasa Smart Plugs by TP-Link for several years now to control lights and TV via Alexa. Never had any problems. Amazon usually has good deals on TP-Link products.
