Amazon's smart devices are among the most popular on the market, especially if you're looking for easy home control. Today, Amazon makes them even more attractive with some deep discounts: Echo Plus is down to $ 100 and comes with a free Hue bulba saving of more than $ 80 while the Echo Show is $ 100 from the list list $ 230 – The lowest prices we've seen since Prime Day Blowout.
Echo Plus is a handsfree smart speaker built to serve as a hub for smart home setup. It looks like a metal version of the classic Echo, but it has a built-in ZigBee smart hub for easy and direct setup of compatible lamps, locks, plugs and wall switches. You can connect a wide range of devices, from TVs to light bulbs without extra hubs, and control all of them with your voice. And as an added benefit, this speaker comes with a Philips Hue A19 white lamp, which sells for $ 15 on its own.
Echo Plus is not our favorite Echo-we only rated 2.5 stars out of 5. We found the audio quality a bit missing and does not like the hub function does not support Z-Wave devices. Having said that, especially at this price, this speaker is a fairly solid starting wheel, and the tied bulb just makes an appointment.
If you are looking for the very best Alexa device, look further than the Echo Show, which has been discounted to $ 130. The show brings the usual voice support, but comes with the added benefit of a built-in 7-inch screen . In addition to more traditional Alexa features, such as calling and checking the weather, you can also view photos and videos on the device itself. When connected to other devices, you can also use it to view your security camera and doorbell feeds.
Echo Show is one of our favorite Alexa devices, giving it 4 stars out of 5 because of its practical display, intercom functionality, and the added boost gives Alexa a visual element.
