The Amazon Echo lineup has made smart home technology accessible to many. These handy Alexa-enabled devices integrate wirelessly with your smart home ecosystem to let you stream music and more via simple voice commands. The Amazon Echo Show, the newest member of the family, was recently unveiled alongside a money-saving offer that can save you $100 for a limited time.
The Amazon Echo Show functions much the same as the other Echo smart hubs, but with the addition of a 7-inch touchscreen display. Like the Echo Dot and Echo speaker, the Echo Show uses the cloud-based Alexa service to access your entertainment libraries from services like Pandora and Spotify. Two Dolby-powered speakers deliver crisp, clear sound and deep bass response that fills the room. You can also perform internet searches, do some online shopping, call an Uber, set alarms, and much, much more.
The touchscreen functionality greatly adds to the Echo Show’s capabilities compared to the older Echo models. You can now watch YouTube videos, see weather forecasts, and check the news, while a built-in camera lets you perform hands-free video calls with friends and family members who have an Echo Show or the Alexa mobile app.
The Echo Show integrates seamlessly with many popular smart home brands such as Philips Hue, WeMo, Samsung SmartThings, and Ecobee, among others, giving you hands-free voice control of your smart home appliances. The display is especially well-suited as a camera monitor, making it easy to keep an eye on your kids and your property by linking the Echo Show with your wireless cams.
The Amazon Echo Show just started shipping on June 28 with a starting price of $230, but if you order a pair of these smart home devices, you can take $100 off. Enter the code SHOW2PACK at checkout and score two Echo Shows for just $360 with this limited-time offer.
