It can also function as a home automation system by utilizing several smart devices or any of the innovative home gadgets we discussed earlier to extend its capabilities and skills; switching on and off lights, activating the sprinklers and alarm systems by simply asking her to do so. Multitasking has never been easier when you have your own virtual assistant to help you take care of the little things when your hands are full.
