Amazon’s Echo Dot is turning science fiction into reality.
This smart device has more features than we can keep track of. Using Alexa, the Dot gives you have the power to play music, control all of your smart home devices, research a product online, read the news, and set new alarms just by talking to this compact box that will seamlessly blend into any room. Additionally, Amazon plans on advancing the Dot’s skills, which currently allow the device to order a pizza from Domino’s or request an Uber — but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The Dot, using Alexa, has raised the bar for voice recognition smart devices. With 7 far field microphones, this device will have no issues hearing you in a noisy environment. The Dot can even hear what you’re saying while playing music through its speakers. It’s designed to work in any room with ease.
The Dot can connect to bluetooth speakers (but also features a 3.5mm stereo cable) to stream music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn. The Dot also features built in speakers, meaning that it can work as an alarm clock, kitchen assistant, bathroom news reader, or function pretty much anywhere that you need it to.
If you already have a smart home device installed in your home, you will be able to control lights, fans, thermostats, garage doors, sprinklers, and any other connected device from WeMo, Philips Hue, Samsung SmartThings, Nest ecobee, and a few others. Owning a smart home device makes Amazon’s Echo Dot an absolute must buy.
A device with as much potential as Amazon’s Echo Dot should cost hundreds — but it doesn’t. This incredible device can be the latest addition to your home for less than the cost of a current-gen video game. It’s literally changing people’s lives. It’s time that it changed yours.
