Keen to have Alexa assistance wherever you are in the home? The Amazon Echo Flex Smart Speaker is a plug-in smart speaker that improves your living space within seconds. Simply plug it into a nearby power outlet, whether that’s in the corner of your living room or your hallway, and you can enjoy all the benefits of Alexa. You can use your voice to set timers, create daily reminders, add items to your shopping list, or check the news or local traffic reports. It’s ideal if you’re short on space but want a smarter home, and the Echo Flex even has a built-in USB Type-A port for charging your phone or other accessories.
Generally considered the most popular of the Amazon Echo range for good reason, the Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Smart Speaker is a sleek and low profile smart speaker that easily looks good in any room of your home. Small enough to fit into most scenarios, it offers you all the benefits of Alexa. That means you can place it in your bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock, while also getting it to switch off your lights. You can also use it in the kitchen to set timers while you cook, or you can place it in the living room to play your favorite songs. It’s super versatile like that and a great addition to every room.
Alexa and Amazon Echo devices aren’t just limited to your home environment — there’s also the Amazon Echo Auto which is designed to work within your car. With simple installation and setup, you can enjoy all the benefits of Alexa hands-free while you drive. The Amazon Echo Auto has an integrated eight-microphone system with far-field voice technology so you can be heard over road noise or music playing in the background. That means you can easily ask Echo Auto to do all kinds of things, from setting reminders, making calls, adding items to your shopping list, to simply entertaining you via music streaming services or podcasts. You can set location-based routines, too, which is perfect for the regular commuter.
Amazon has an extensive range of different tablets for different scenarios, and they’re all on offer right now. Starting at $40, down from $50, you can snap up the Amazon Fire 7 tablet with 16GB of storage and all the essentials you need for streaming content, browsing online, installing Android apps, and even enjoying hands-free Alexa support. If your budget stretches a little further, there’s also the superior Amazon Fire HD 8 32GB for $55, down from $90, along with the high-end Amazon Fire HD 10-inch 64GB tablet for just $120 down from $190. Whatever you buy, you get all the benefits of the Android OS optimized with Amazon products in mind.
Want all the benefits of Alexa but also want a screen to be able to do even more with it? The Amazon Echo Show 5″ Smart Display is the perfect device for you. Besides all the benefits of Alexa including the ability to ask her questions, control your smart home, and set up lists, you also have the benefit of the Amazon Echo Show’s display. It enables you to easily watch the news and other videos, as well as set up video calls with your friend and family. Other bonuses like on-screen lyrics via Amazon Music and attractive clock faces sweeten the deal. As you’d expect from Alexa, it’s all done hands-free for added convenience. It’s a great addition to your home set-up.
Busy working at home and the doorbell rings? Wouldn’t it be useful to be able to immediately see who it is without heading to the door yourself? That’s the thinking behind the Ring Video Doorbell 3 which sends notifications to your smartphone, giving you a heads-up on who’s at your door. It’s a fantastic security device which now offers improved motion detection, enhanced Wi-Fi, and much more. Once someone rings the bell, you can easily see, hear, and speak to visitors from anywhere. It’ll even work if you’re traveling and nowhere near your home. Privacy features mean you can easily choose your own motion zones or opt-out for a little bit, depending on what you’re doing.
If a basic Amazon Echo Dot feels too small for your needs then the Amazon Echo Studio Smart Speaker will be just right. It offers an immersive three-dimensional soundscape because it’s a much larger speaker, ensuring you have studio-quality audio from every direction. As before, you can ask Alexa to complete many tasks around the home, like checking the news or controlling your smart home gadgets. Where the Amazon Echo Studio is fantastic though is its ability to play back music. Thanks to Dolby Atmos technology and five speakers, it sounds great with powerful bass and crisp high tones. It also adapts to any room, automatically sensing the acoustics of your living space and adjusting accordingly.
The Amazon Echo Show (2nd Gen) is designed to be a great smart home hub for everything going on around your home. With a vibrant 10-inch HD screen, you can use it to see who’s at the front door (via a Ring Video Doorbell), make video calls, watch live TV or streaming content, or simply ask Alexa to show you a recipe so you can get baking. It’s optimized for visibility across the room so you can easily see what’s going on from a distance as well as hear music playing via its dual 2-inch premium drivers and passive bass radiator. If you want your home to be a little smarter and a lot more fun, this is the ideal accompaniment with all the magic of Alexa backed up with a great screen.
