The innovative Amazon Echo Dot is a voice-controlled, hands-free speaker that answers commands and questions, reports on sports and news, gives the latest traffic and weather info, and so much more. Complete with a Smart Plug and featuring virtual assistant Alexa, this super smart device will fit seamlessly into your home, making you wonder how you managed without it!
The choice is yours
- in a choice of one or two devices complete with Smart Plugs, these intuitive speakers come with virtual assistant Alexa and can communicate with each other as well as other devices on your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to create a fully connected Amazon eco-system within your home. Plus choose from stylish neutral shades of Charcoal, Heather Grey or Sandstone that will fit in with any home decor.
Just ask Alexa
- a voice-controlled personal assistant, Alexa responds to your questions and commands when you say her name. Alexa can check your calendar, get news, weather, traffic or sports updates, and even create shopping lists, as well as order you a takeaway or an Uber, or you can ask her to look up a recipe and she will read it out for you to follow! You can even connect your smart home - control lights, switches, thermostats and smart home technologies, when you pair it with compatible connected devices from Philips Hue, Hive, TP-Link, and more.
Set up with the app
- the free Alexa app will allow you to easily set up and manage your Amazon Echo Dot. Use the app to connect services you already use such as Amazon Music, Spotify and Google Calendar, then set up your smart home devices or see which books are available to listen to from your Audible library. The app is also great when you're out and about, allowing you to control your timers and set custom tones for your alarms, and much more back at home.
Made for any room
- the sleek and compact design makes it a convenient addition to any room in the house. With its built-in speaker, you can place Echo Dot in the bedroom and use it as a smart alarm clock that can also turn off your lights, or use it in the kitchen to easily set timers and more using just your voice.
No more shouting up the stairs
- grandpa in the attic? Dad in the study? Kids in the den? As long as there's an Echo Dot in the room, you can ask Alexa to 'Drop In' and send them a voice memo to let them know "It’s teatime", or even to "Turn the music down!". Drop In is an optional feature that allows you to instantly connect hands-free with the Echo devices in your home, and it can also double as an intercom or baby monitor.
Turn up the sounds
- connect directly to speakers using a 3.5mm stereo cable, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and enjoy hands-free, voice control for your music - just ask for your favourite artist or song, or request a specific genre or mood. You can also search for music by lyrics, when a song or album was released, or let Alexa pick the music for you. Plus, with seven microphones, beam forming technology and noise cancellation, Echo hears you from any direction even while music is playing.
- want to play music on an Echo in another room? Now with Multi-Room Music, you can tell Alexa to play across all your Echo devices. Just tell Alexa to play jazz in the kitchen, top pop in the living room, or play the same song downstairs - available for Amazon Music, Spotify and Tune In.
Alexa makes the call
- when you’re busy making dinner or putting the little ones to bed, Alexa can make and answer a call, and even send or receive text messages! This handy feature works for anyone who has a supported Echo device or the Alexa App on their mobile phone. What's more, on-the-go calls are also a breeze; use the Alexa app on your mobile to make a quick call or send a message to your family’s Echo back at home.
Create a Smart Home
- Amazon Smart Plug's work with Alexa to add voice control to any electrical socket in your home. Connect yours to the Echo device, or even just the Alexa App on your phone to schedule and voice-control your lights, coffee machines or appliances to turn on and off automatically, so you can create your perfect morning routine. Easy to set up and use, simply plug in, open the Alexa app and start using your voice.
