The Echo Plus from Amazon is more than just a Bluetooth speaker. With its integrated Zigbee hub, the Echo Plus allows you to mount and control compatible smart devices with your voice, from light switches to thermostat changes or door locking. The possibilities are endless and constantly evolving, and you can now score an Echo Plus at one of its best prices ever for your home. You’ll save $50 off the regular cost of this smart speaker of the second generation at $99.99.
Powered by Dolby Play, the Echo Plus is designed to send sound in every direction to fill the space in any room it is in. For stereo sound, two can even be paired together. With its Amazon Alexa feature, you can start streaming songs from services such as Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM, and others by simply asking Alexa to use your voice. This is just the start of what Alexa can do for you. You can also ask to hear the latest news or sports updates, check the weather, get answers to your questions, set alarms and timers, and more.
Echo Plus’s ability to control compatible smart home devices through its built-in Zigbee hub is an even more useful feature. Say you have a smart plug or smart bulbs from Philips Hue at home. Just ask Alexa to get you to power them on and off. Whether you’re busy making dinner in the kitchen or cuddled up under the blankets about to fall asleep, there’s going to be some extra help to get things done.
The Amazon Echo Plus also helps you to call and email almost anyone hands-free via Skype with its integrated microphone. You can also send messages and ads to other Echo devices that you own. In addition, Amazon is constantly adding new skills to Alexa, from tracking fitness to playing games and more.
