The Most Mind-Blowing Alexa Products of 2018

Come on. Who doesn’t love a virtual helper? Since Amazon’s Alexa burst on to the scene, it’s made life so much easier. Using simple voice commands, Alexa can control everything from your lights to security cameras. It can even start your day by telling you the headlines or play your favorite tunes.

Other big tech players are hot on Amazon’s tails (I’m looking at you, Google). But in my humble opinion, Amazon do it best.

Without further a due, I present the Top 3 essential Amazon and Echo products:

1) ecobee4 Thermostat with Sensor

Overview

This is a must-have if you’re perennially too hot or cold. The ecobee4 will adjust your room to an optimum temperature on command. The smart technology will monitor your room temperature and help you save money on your costs (up to 23% according to the company email). But it doesn’t stop there. You can also ask the ecobee to search for your favorite music or to read you the news. Actually it has skills in more than 10,000 areas. Impressive, huh?? The only limitation I found is that it doesn’t turn AC on and off. At least I wasn’t successful….but as I say, it will adjust temperature precisely.

Admittedly, all these features come at a price (around $250 to be exact). But if you’re on a tight budget, it’s regularly on offer. Keep an eye on Amazon so you don’t miss out.

My Verdict

This gadget has combined Alexa with an ultra smart temperature controller. If that’s what you want, it’s a marriage made in heaven. Don’t forget to look out for special deals on this one.

2) Amazon Echo Dot Case

Overview

Forgot to order a case for your Echo Dot? So did I.

The best case you’re going to find is the original Amazon case. Thankfully it only costs the same as a few cups of joe… What I also love is that it comes in an array of great colors and materials, including: indigo, merlot and midnight leather. Since it’s an original, it will fit your Echo Dot like a glove. And you definitely won’t lose out on functionality or sound quality.

My Verdict

At less than $10 a pop, this is the only choice to protect your valuable device from knocks and scratches. It makes perfect sense to get one especially if you’re thinking of travelling with your Echo Dot.

Specifications:

  • Available in six styles to complement any room
  • Nylon woven fabric or full-grain leather wrapped case
  • Designed for a precise fit around your device
  • Provides access to all ports and buttons and full view of the light ring from any angle
  • Compatible with Echo Dot 2nd Generation only

3) Amazon Tap – Alexa-Enabled Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Overview

Are you a big music fiend? Then you need an Amazon Tap in your life. This voice command gadget is specifically designed for music lovers. Simply give it a tap and ask it to play your favorite tracks from Spotify, iHeartRadio or you guessed it – Amazon Music. That’s just to name a few. On top of that you can ask Alexa to fill you in on the latest headlines or order you a take out. All from the comfort of your own couch. The Amazon Tap is Bluetooth and Wi-Fi compatible. The battery life is around 9 hours a go. That’s a whole day’s worth of blasting your top tunes.

Sadly, unlike the Echo the Tap cannot play music in multiple rooms at once. If you don’t mind transporting your tap, that’s fine. But for the bigger house parties it can be a little limiting.

My Verdict

I’d recommend that Tap especially for music lovers. It’s a little on the heavier side, but still designed to be portable. You’ll get most of the features of other products like the Echo, but not quite the full suite. Almost perfect.
