Smart home products live up to their name, but the Mosaic skill for Alexa is a system that can make those already-intelligent devices even more convenient and efficient. The holistic skill allows users to group their smart home devices together under single commands, integrating individually controlled devices into a complete smart home environment.

With the Alexa home assistant alone, users have no choice but to control their IoT devices independently. For instance, when starting one's day in the morning, they would need separate commands for turning the lights on, starting the coffee machine, warming up the car, announcing the weather forecast, et cetera. With the Mosaic skill for Alexa, users can group all these actions into a single command, initiating all of the above by simply saying something like, "Ask Mosaic for my morning routine."
