Amazon Smart Home Devices

Amazon have announced a variety of smart home devices all aimed at bringing their voice assistant Alexa to more devices in your home, and even to your car. Some of the products are updates to existing Echo devices, others are brand new, including a subwoofer, a smart plug, a new Echo device for your car and even a smart microwave that integrates with your home setup. Check out the list of products below...


Just ask Alexa to play music, resume your Audible book, check your calendar, find nearby businesses, make calls, and more. With eight microphones, Echo Auto even hears you over road noise. Echo Auto starts up in seconds, works through your car speakers, and uses your existing smartphone plan.

With Echo Sub and a compatible Echo device, you can add rich bass to your music experience. Echo Sub delivers down-firing, 100W deep bass sound through a 6” woofer. When paired with your Echo device, you can feel the music as it fills the room — just say "Alexa, play music."

The Echo Link serves as a bridge between it and your stereo or home theater. It has multiple digital and analog inputs and outputs, letting you control music choices and volume with your voice, with the added bonus of tying into an Alexa-based multi-room music system. If you have a pair of speakers but need power, the Echo Link Amp does all of the above but also has a built-in, two-channel 60W amp for running passive speakers.
