Team Kramer has a new housemate: Alexa, the virtual assistant of Amazon.


The new Team Kramer house continues to amaze netizens.

After teasing his Instagram followers with some of the house's amenities, Doug Kramer reveals another cool feature of their new home: a home automation system.

The PBA star and his kids Kendra, Scarlett, and Gavin do the test run at the kids' indoor "adventure zone."

Through voice command, Kendra instructs Alexa, the Amazon virtual assistant, to activate the lights and air conditioner in their playroom.

Kendra only says, "Alexa, play time," and the lights and air conditioner in the playroom are activated.

To turn them off, Scarlett says, "Alexa, play time over," and everything in the room deactivates.

A home automation system can control the lighting, air conditioning system, entertainment system, and appliances through a central online hub. 

For the Kramers, it appears that they are using Alexa, the popular virtual assistant from Amazon Echo

Alexa is like Apple's own virtual assistant Siri, which can perform tasks through vocie command.

Team Kramer moved into their new house on June 22, just in time for the celebration of Kendra's 10th birthday.

The house was nearly two years in the making.
