I have a number of Amazon Echo/Fire devices throught my home, used for everything, but mostly music.

I do use the plugin multiple time daily as well.  I'm not sure of the functionality that can be made between Axial and Alexa, however since the inclusion of the thermostats I notice that you get positive feedback when worked, but not neccessarily on switches etc. still.

What I really was wondering is if you can ask about sensors or device status.  Like, "is the kitchen light turned on?" or "is the garage door open?" etc.  Not sure if feeedback like that is available or could be made available?
