Knockout Chaos in Your Head

I have a multi-story home and found myself constantly yelling across the house to my kids. I bought a Google Mini (Alexa works too) and put them in each room. Now I have an intercom system and no more yelling. OK, less yelling. As a bonus, the device can also play music when I need it.
