So I got my legally blind cousin hooked up with a couple of echos,
Got a garage door opener controller and managed to hook that up using ifttt and alexa,
Also got the lights working using some smart light switches https://www.fusionautomation.co.nz/product/smart-wall-switch/
We played around with a ir blaster but its way to flaky to be reliable looking at a new LG TV with built in support
Any other ideas, Bluetooth locators seem like a good idea but if it just says "lounge" its not really enough information.
