One of the key accessories to make a home smart, beyond the Internet connection, is to have a voice assistant that allows you to easily manage all the devices that are installed. One of the most advanced that exists today is Amazon Alexa, and to have it available in the rooms a good option is to buy an Echo Dot , which is currently on sale .
This device inside includes the development of which we speak that, by the way, offers configuration and management applications for both the iOS operating system and for Android , so the compatibility in this section is excellent. With a circular design finished in plastic and fabric, its small dimensions – 43 x 99 x 99 centimeters – allow it to be placed virtually anywhere in the house. Thus, this can be the device that wakes you up in the morning and that is on the bedside table (since its LED only illuminates in the case of having any novelty and, even, it is possible to turn it off completely as it happens with microphones to ensure maximum privacy).
The connectivity offered by Echo Dot is very wide, since on the one hand it allows you to use WiFi networks so that the Alexa assistant can properly access the Internet and look for answers or additional use options that are useful for the user (and, in addition , this is the interface used for the configuration). In addition, a Bluetooth chip is included inside to synchronize with other devices and exercise voice control – which, incidentally, does not work on macOS.
