News - Yale Z-Wave locks Alexa accessible, if you have SmartThings or Wink! hub

You should be able to use Alexa to mess with any Z-Wave device via a scene (worst case) on most HAC, but it's great that SmartThings and Wink! users now have native support.

Let us know in the comments if you've had a chance to play with this.

News - Vera Control opens beta for Amazon Alexa control

I've quite pleased with how HA Bridge exposes Vera devices and scenes to my Amazon Alexa, so I'm a little conflicted about signing up. But, if you don't have that setup, this is perfect for you.

News - Amazon Echo now controls Harmony via "Skill"

If you have an Amazon Echo (or Echo Dot) you can now natively control your Logitech Harmony Smart Hub via a "Skill". It is US only for the moment (suck), but I was able to have a brief play with it anyway (shhh). Overall, it's nice that it's there. But, lacks some of the flexibility avaiable with ha-bridge integration (e.g. renaming activities to whatever you want). That said, not everyone want to spin up a box to host a 3rd party bridge app.
