Is anyone using Google Home or Amazon Echo from India? Can you please tell me if it is working fine or if there are any hiccups using them in India?

Thanks in Advance.

Wow this is super cool. Can we integrate our existing lighting at home to be controlled via echo ?

Its a kwikset z wave lock.. actually it looks kind of clumsy in the video with the time it takes to unlock
although in daily use, I normally ask the door to be unlocked while I am parking my car.

Nah, I'm already doing my own research and experimentation on this hehehe :D No spoonfeeding necessary, but it's OK if anyone wants to chime in.

So I did an Artificial Intelligence live demo at my workplace today during our lunch break which apparently was a smash hit with my coworkers! :D

To get an idea of what we experienced see this official video:
