5-star reviews: 525, 500+
If you have a smartphone, then it’ll turn on lights, adjust thermostats, lock doors, and more. The device is also designed to provide multiple layers of privacy protections and controls, including a microphone “off” button that electronically disconnects the microphone. Yup, this way neither the government nor Google can get all in your business when you’re chatting.
Promising review: “I am so happy with my Echo Dot and Alexa. It’s something I never knew I needed until I had it. Now, I can’t see myself without it. It has so many features. It’s really a helping hand with remembering events coming up. It turns my lights on and off and works great with my ring doorbell. Now, I don’t have any smart plugs in my house but definitely will be getting them just so I can use my Echo Dot and Alexa more. My kids love talking with Alexa and asking her questions. They tell her to play songs and all we are hooked on this technology. Now, I am strongly thinking of getting the Eco Show 8 to add to my home. —Fredrian
