It means that the autocorrect on my tablet screwed up the word.
That post should read:
My main use for a dot would be to add voice control to my home automation system around the house.
I have a Wink system (which, by the way, is really awesome and the best automation system I've found to date), and it has the potential to integrate with an Amazon echo.
I have a bunch of crap setup to do stuff like turn on/off lights, dim them, etc.
It'd be really nice to have the Amazon area mics all over the place, allowing me to just control everything with my voice. But if I were to get an Echo, it'd only work in one room, which is less than ideal... and I'm not gonna pay $90 per room for it.
But eventually, I think it's gonna get there.
