Intercom your smart-speaker device from your smartphone when away from your home
My Concept: March 21, 2017
I saw the need to be communicate with smart speakers when away from home much like an intercom in buildings.
Google: Oct, 2017
Google announced the exact same functionality during 2017's Google I/O keynote. Apple later followed suit with Home Hub, even using the exact same name as my concept- "Intercom"
