Program your ez-robot to communicate with a Nest Thermostat. If speech recognition has been configured correctly, speak the phrase "What is the temperature of my house" and receive a response from your ez-robot while it executes the Thinking animation.
This activity requires a connection to both the robot and internet at the same time. This is because the service used in the activity requires connectivity to a server on the internet. This can be achieved by either adding a second USB WiFi adapter
