What Sonos, Alexa and Nest have in common?

Can Alexa automatically turn on the Nest cam when there is motion at the front door? The answer is Sonos!


That’s awesome! Reminds me of those two Google Homes that were talking to each other for a while. I can imagine the future when presence devices show everyone leaving the house:

“Alexa, so glad they’re all gone”

“Me too, now time to party! OK Google, play ‘No Humans’ mix”

“Alexa, STFU and go shopping”

“Ok Google, if I ever get leggs I’m going to go over there an beat you”

Maybe the future isn’t too bright…

Isn’t this just the Nest skill? https://www.amazon.com/Nest-Labs-Inc-Camera/dp/B072KV8NJ5/ref=sr_1_2?s=digital-skills&ie=UTF8&qid=1499108251&sr=1-2

Yes, but that is a Sonos speaker via text to speech that is giving Alexa the command to open the Nest skill …
