Customers worldwide purchased tens of millions Amazon Devices this holiday—and they’ll be getting set up heading into 2020. Customers love their devices for features like timers, weathers, music, and more. However, by spending just a few minutes with your Alexa app, you can make sure Alexa works hard for you. Not sure where to start? Have no fear—Ryan Serhant of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York is sharing details about how his family has put his Amazon devices in his home to good use.

"My life is all about working to find someone the perfect home, and once we find it, it’s important to make that home work just as hard for its new owner. Alexa helps our family run like a well-oiled machine by setting Routines, like turning on the lights and coffee maker when my alarm goes off, automatically opening the shades, and playing music in surround sound throughout the apartment," said Serhant. "It only takes a few minutes to download the Alexa app and set up your devices—and with more innovations coming to Amazon Devices, it’s a breeze to turn any residence into the perfect 'home sweet (smart) home.'"
