This is probably a silly example but does raise a rather interesting appraoch to using say Alexa or some other trigger to control a raspberry pi.
What are your thoughts and be gentle with your criticisms!
Sounds a great idea to me. I like the idea of using geo-fencing you already have to detect occupancy, arrival and departure. The only issue would be when not living alone where you might need something which can keep track of who's in and who's out.
Not having such wizardry myself a burglar alarm PIR provides occupied signalling for me and some 'not really AI' processing to determine when occupancy has ceased.
As long as you have the triggers and a processor to determine what to do with those triggers the possibilities are endless.
If you worry your system is silly; mine says "Good Morning" when I've got up, occasionally "Happy Birthday" and "Merry Christmas", and reminds me which bins need putting out that evening.
Before the advent of TiVo, PVR's and series links, it used to tell me what it thought I might like to watch on TV that evening. One day I'll move that from the Windows 98 PC it's been running on for years to a Pi Zero W.
