Amazon Alexa has long been at the forefront of intelligent speaker and voice assistants. But to control elements, they usually have to go through a special stroke.
However, thanks to the Zigbee, the new Echo Plus has eliminated two different products. All you have to do is control your lights, thermostats and safety features, and it can do it all by itself.
The setup is easy. Just say “Alexa, find my devices,” and all compatible additions will be automatically found and immediately added to the network. As long as you have Zigbee communication or work with Alexa, there will be a mating.
There are still all the classic specifications that have made the Echo so popular. The new premium speakers with Dolby play 360 ° audio offer even crisper vocals and a dynamic bass response compared to previous models. You can also listen to music, read news, get weather forecasts, set alarms and timers, and enable drop-in Everyone with an echo or the Alexa app.
We also liked the small addition of an internal thermometer so you can specify the temperature in the current room, and fairly accurate results are displayed. Not absolutely necessary, but something that might come in handy if you have a smart thermometer or something similar.
For the small price jump compared to the original echoes you get much more for your money and the improvements are clear and beneficial. If you wanted to buy a speech assistant but did not know if the latest echo was worth it, we can definitely make it clear.
cho Plus has a built-in Zigbee hub to easily setup and control your compatible smart home devices, and an improved sound for streaming music.
