The ESP32 chip has VR built-in if you want to go for five.

Nope, I'll most likely have it down to three before the end of the year.
Sadly that may mean the end of my PCC animated speaking Face set I enjoy now in my office.

I'm starting to enjoy using Cortana in my office.
Although she is much slower at turning things on and off.
I seem to like the fact  that the light stays on till I get to the door of the office.
Although PCC is still running I've not used the Speech recognition with it in some time now.
In fact I'm not sure it even works with Cortana enabled now. ::) :'

(nope I guess not) B:(

I have reminders set up in my Alexa app which showup on my Phone and yesterday I got one on my PC :o
I think this is due to the fact I also have Cortana setup on my android phone. ::) :'

This morning I caught my wife looking at her phone with the X10WIFI app open :o
She was trying to turn off a lamp without her glasses rofl
A X10 icon remote was sitting right next to her but she was trying to use the phone.
The WM100 continues to handle my timers flawlessly and I rarely open the app any more. In fact I think my wife may use the app more then me. rofl
 I've moved the Google mini from the office to the kitchen this is really much better for recipes then Alexa. At least from my initial tests. ::) :'
I've now got most of my HA devices setup to work with Alexa, Google Home and Cortana. Google seldom gets used for HA however now the mini is in the kitchen. ::)

Everything.... (thanks to the cloud) will soon share with everything else.

Thanks to streaming devices connected to my TV's... all my pictures (or at least 5 gigs of them) can be shared on the TV. I can also share those pics with others by sharing limited cloud permissions (daughter can see granddaughter pics on her TV.. or save and share... so husbands mother can see pics on her smart TV.

Sharing calendars between spouses can make scheduling much easier. And reminders shared with Alex and/or Google can remind spouses why someone is not home.... or that dinner with be eaten-out. Or geofencing can alert one spouse when to push a "visitor" out the back door (that could save a marriage...  rofl).

The cloud offers more true automation than most traditional automation stores ever thought of. And... there is a lot more to come.

Modern automation is much more than turning things on and off.
The use of Home Automation is limited... only by our imaginations.
