AMAZON voice assistant Alexa can help make people’s lives easier every day – but did you know it can also save you money?
Alexa has three voice prompts to help its users reduce energy costs this winter.
With the ongoing cost of living crisis, it seems like everyone is looking for a way to reduce the cost of their bills.
According to a study by Amazon, around 45 percent of people are more worried about their energy bills today than they were last year.
So these prompts can be really useful.
This is especially true if your home has a smart heating system installed.
Prompts don’t just save you money.
Alexa can also help eliminate arguments about turning off the lights.
Research from Amazon found that almost half of Brits have disagreements with their family or housemates over keeping the lights on in the house when no one is in the room.
But at least one thing, if these calls can settle these arguments.
Most read in “Phones and Gadgets.”
Earlier this year, Amazon announced that customers would be able to access a smart energy dashboard to monitor their energy consumption through the Loop Energy Saver skill.
Amazon has also worked with the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero to provide customers with the latest energy saving tips from the UK Government.
Here are three suggestions customers can use to ask their Alexa to save money:
- “Alexa, show me my energy dashboard”
- “Alexa, how much energy am I using?”
- “Alexa, give me some energy saving tips”
