    Hi Guys, i decided to step up my tank automation and add some voice control to my ecotech reeflink. Its extremely handy when your hands are full or in the tank!

    The Amazon Alexa listens to your voice commands the. sends commands to the reeflink to instruct the pumps to go into feedmode. Same thing you can do with the phone app but hands free with your voice!

    Hey all. I have my team working on the Apex API for me now. Doubtful Alexa will be able to control it but I use a product call josh.ai which is essentially a high end Amazon Alexa. Will post some videos once they finish it for me!
