If you want a smart home but don’t love the idea of a smart screen starting at you, the Amazon Echo Dot is the device for you. It’s small and unobtrusive; it can play music, podcasts or audiobooks; it can make calls for you; and it can deliver weather, news and traffic updates. In the Amazon secret sale section, we found this bundle, pairing the Echo Dot with a Sengled color-changing Bluetooth light bulb, for just $20 total! You can dim, brighten or change the color with a simple voice command.
A reviewer who started out with a single Echo device says, “After setting it up and streaming my favorite music, getting the weather, news and being able to get an answer to the dumb questions my family can make up, I ordered four more. I’ve set them up throughout the house to use as an intercom and got one to give to friends. Like a cell phone, I don’t know how we lived before having the Echo Dot, and I wish I had ordered them sooner. I really love it! I really like that it can be used to make calls — which helps out since we don’t have a landline phone at the house.”
