And people ask me why I haven't - and will never - purchase something like the Amazon Echo.

I'm assuming something like this is standard issue in most Sixth World homes.

Depends on the finances, but, yes, any home in the middle lifestyle or higher is loaded with this kind of thing. A Major Domo computer system is standard-issue, running things like your refrigerator, your lighting, plays music when you come home, upkeeps the vacuum drone, and so on.

If you're poor, like 40% of the population, not so much, but the well-to-do are quite well-off.

It's the "behavior monitoring and control" software that's over the top. I've described my typical home/computer security approach for the Sixth World here, and I was careful to note that my home management CHN is not directly connected to the Matrix. I sure as hell wouldn't have software specifically designed to track my every more in my own house and then constantly report on it. That's just beyond insane.

I love technology, I really do, but I would NEVER get something like Alexa. With Shadowrun tech you can hardware powerful enough to run a virtual intelligence software package like Alexa but without the need for a server farm. One of the biggest reasons I haven't gone to Windows 10 is that I can't get it to stop sending information back to Redmond. Honestly that should be illegal.
