Talking Spotify Family plan & Alexa

Hi, can I check who is using Spotify Family plan over here ?

I'm using the Spotify premium right now but intending to switch to Spotify Family when date expiry.

If im user "A" , i have my own alexa..... and there is user "B" with his own alexa at his household, but we are under same family plan, alexa account linked is still tied to my unique account and will not be affected with the family plan bundle right ?

I guess will not but just thought maybe somebody already tried and want to confirm.

Thanks in advance!

over past few days I managed to setup and configure a Plex media server and successfully linked the plex skill with Alexa.

next thing I'm intending to try is a IP CCTV camera which can also be integrated with Alexa (maybe act as a motion detector to trigger certain actions while also recording footages)

all the well known brands are way too expensive, looking for a cheap PRC product that won't cost a bomb... anyone tried yet?

Guys,

Is there a wifi switch with 2-way? my current physical dumb switches are 2-way. Meaning I can turn On/off at two locations. I wish to retain the same setup but include an option to control these switches with phone remotely (home or outside), of cos best is able to contril via Google Home.

I checked, all are 1-way (1 gang, 2 gang etc)

Those with or intending to get Broadlink RM Pro, can take a look at the videos below.

Google Home


Alexa


apparently Broadlink has limited the features on their newer model;
- Only RF for Google Home
- Only IR for Alexa


Bro here with RM Pro, care to comment?
I ordered one last night just seconds before I saw these video. I am using Google Home. sad

I ordered from aliexpress.
I just chose the cheapest seller. Not sure if it is an old model.
But according to the video, he said RM Pro+ definitely newer model. I almost got that model. Heng.

In-Sink Food Disposer

Hello forumers, anyone ever bought from this company called Barracuda before? I've almost had enough with the flies that the kitchen trash attracts overnight, and that it's only me clearing the trash in the morning.Tough being the only person cleaning after the mess of 5 people in the house. Anyone has experience using the in-sink food disposer? Power consumption? Maintenance wise of the device?
