I had the perception of home automation that you would need an Alexa or something with Siri (HomeKit) with electronic switches like wall switches to control the lights with your voice, set up to automatically turn on when you walk into a room, or control them at a distance. We are visiting our son, who has an Alexa device and smart lights. it talks to Alexa, so there's no need to install a Wi-Fi switch. So I ask Apple or Alexa? Here's what stands out: While Apple's HomeKit struggles with compatibility with a few hundred brands, the Alexa ecosystem is compatible with as many as 100,000 smart home devices according to Statista data. I have both a Roku and Apple TV, so I don't consider myself an Apple prisoner, and while I prefer iPhone and iOS to Android, I'm willing to opt for the better and more economical configuration, although since I'm mostly familiar with iOS, if all other things like compatibility were equal, I'd choose Apple. But as it is, Alexa seems like a better choice. Opinions? We compare two of the most popular smart home options and help you decide which one is best for your home. www.makeuseof.com

I'm very curious to see how long it will take for AI to get into these devices. I don't know if this is still the case today, but if it is, it sounds bleak. Of all companies, I thought Apple would handle this like the duck to the June bug.
