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.

Hi All, as said - very much a newbie, with not much idea about what Alexa can do yet.

My initial plan was to use it to remote control outside lights and power printers, rather than walking up stairs when I want to print. I already have these on a radio remote control, but thinking I could hand control over to Alexa - maybe(?)

I have bought 4x what are described as Alexa compatible, cheap, 13amp plug adaptors, probably due for delivery tomorrow. When they turn up, where do I go from there please? Something about loading a 'skill'?

Is Alexa able to do more than turn lights off when commanded? Can I set Alexa to turn lights on/off at set times? Can Alexa turn lights on at dusk? Am I asking silly questions?
