The last four days has seen me quite troubled and humbled. Until yesterday, I was testing four Amazon Echo Dots as disability assistants. Yesterday, I was bathing and I realized a bit of panic while in the Tub.
I had transferred the Echo Dot from my bedroom to the bathroom to listen to the news. I didn’t connect my cell phone and was thus, in a tub of water, barely abled and cut off from the world. If I had an issue in the tub… Well, I think you can see the bit of panic.
I have just ordered two additional Echo Dots. They will be placed in inconspicuous location in each of our bathrooms. I even ordered them white so they will blend in with their surroundings.
If you have someone with mobility issues, I can’t recommend this device strongly enough. They must be paired with a cell phone to make calls, but they work beautifully.
You can play music, either from an online service or a home media server.
Among functions I use to help me are: listening to news with a command, setting reminders or alarms, intercom, music throughout the house, bible verse of the day, and on and on.
For a small investment, the effect on the quality of my life as been great.
I didn’t have trouble in the tub this time. But, I am insuring that I will never be cut off from help again.
Thanks for reading, in Christ.
