Smart Home Simplified with Amazon’s Echo Dot

What is the Echo Dot?

The Echo Dot is a device by Amazon that is about the size of a hockey puck. This innovation is hands free and uses voice control to execute your commands.  Alexa refers to the name of the voice service that receives your commands and speaks to you. The Dot can be used as an alarm, can play music, control your smart home devices, provide headline news, provide your weather forecast, tell jokes, remind you of your appointments, order your Dominio’s pizza, keep track of your grocery list and so much more!

The Echo Dot is a smaller version of Amazon’s Alexa and it can be used along with Alexa or on it’s own. The Dots can be placed in different rooms and can be controlled by different users. The Dot can hear you from across the room with it’s seven far-field microphones used for voice recognition, even when it is loud and music is playing!

Connect the Dots

The Echo Dot can connect to speakers or headphones through Bluetooth or a or 3.5 mm stereo cable to play music from Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and TuneIn.  The built-in speaker allows the Dot to work on it’s own as a smart alarm clock in the bedroom, an assistant in the kitchen, or help anywhere in the home that you desire voice-control tasks.
