Amazon Echo & Alexa App Now Officially Available in Singapore

I chanced upon Amazon.sg yesterday and saw that Amazon have Amazon Echo (4th Generation) and Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation) available internationally.

These are the international version, so that they will come with the correct adapter plug. Also, note that some Alexa Skills may not be available for all countries.

Sonoff T2UK Wi-Fi Smart Wall Switch Review

Back Story
Right at the beginning of my smart home journey in 2016, I have been using MCO Z-Wave smart wall switches.

I have used a mix of both Series 3 and Series 4 MCO switches. All my 1-gang switches are Series 4 (MH-S411), and all my 2-gang and 3-gang switches are Series 3 (MH-S312 and MH-S314).
