So I was just using my mini George Foreman to heat up a nice sandwich when an idea struck. Yes, those can be very dangerous. Anyway, George is quite old-fashioned, no on/off switch. You just plug him in when you want to use him and unplug it when you’re done. Hmm, a smart plug perhaps? That part is easy. But how to control for how LONG to keep the smart switch on? I am not aware of any way to get Alexa to store a value. As I’m typing this, more ideas are firing. Sounds like an Alexa skill perhaps?
Is this something that @MichaelS’ Ask Alexa can already handle?
And yes, this me capturing thoughts as I am having them and sharing them with you. Constructive ideas are welcome.
