I have not made the commitment to try Alexa or Google home yet because I'm a little apprehensive about the secruity issues. However, that being said, I am ready when I decide. In the mean time, this is a great surge protecter and has 4 USB ports, which is awesome for my desk in my home office. I usually have 3 or 4 things that need charging and they don't all have the same end on them. I also don't have to hunt up 4 different plugs for my cords. So, for what I am using it for, it's great and very helpful.
