We can only agree with Zemismart : quality, customer focus and development. Our various tests do not contradict this vision. It is a brand that we must continue to follow closely because the pace of its developments in recent months is quite impressive. The fact that the French market is the second market for the brand seems to confirm the enthusiasm of Alexians for connected products.

 

Did i choose Alexa or did she choose me? Let's say that as a beta tester, it's a bit of both! And I do not regret having met our favorite assistant nor this adventure undertaken with Alexien Modo. Technophile, self-taught and loving popularization, I try to make our common passion easy to access!
