Direct Energy and the Echo Dot

How Can the Echo Dot Help Me Save Energy?

Amazon's Echo Dot allows you to control your smart home and perform actions with voice commands. Instead of taking time from your day to make a note, set a timer or control your electronics and smart home devices, you can call on your own personal assistant, Alexa, to do it for you. By controlling your smart home devices and helping you track your usage, the Echo Dot combined with the Direct Energy Alexa skill makes saving energy - and money - effortless.

You can ask Direct Energy for your weekly, monthly or yearly usage, and even ask which appliance is using the most electricity.
