Prime members can save up to 66% on Amazon smart home devices ahead of Prime Day – SFGATE
The Amazon Echo is on sale for Prime members.
It’s 2022, and that means it’s time to start upgrading your home to be a bit smarter. Back when “Iron Man” came out and we saw Tony Stark’s smart home ran by JARVIS, it seemed a bit far-fetched. But these days, having a robot control things around the house is as easy as buying a few Amazon Echo products.
And now through the end of Prime Day, Amazon Prime members can get their hands on a few Echo products (and other smart home products) for a lot cheaper. For example, you can pick up a new 4th Generation Amazon Echo to act as the hub of your smart home for just $59.99 (40% off).
The Amazon Echo is a smart speaker at its core, but it can also control all of your smart home products thanks to the built-in Zigbee Smart Hub. Once it’s setup, all you have to do is say “Alexa” and the Echo will wake up. Once you start getting other smart home products, the Echo can automatically connect to them and control them simply by saying “Alexa, discover my devices.”
The easiest way to create a smart home is to combine the Echo with a few Echo Dots around the place. This will give you the ability to talk to Alexa from just about anywhere in your house. If you want to hook up some lights or the TV or something to an outlet, this bundle with an Echo Dot and an Amazon Smart Plug is perfect. The Echo will find, connect to, and control these devices by using your voice.
