Makes things so convenient!
Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2020
I love my Echo dot and also bought on for my daughter. I'd recently broken my foot and ankle, so getting around to turn on or off lights was difficult.
I used it with smart plugs for my Christmas lights, and with smart light bulbs for lamps, etc... I can turn lights and electronics on or off with voice command or by the app on my phone. I can also send text messages by telling the do to text someone in my contacts list, play music throughout the house, and use it like an intercom. I'm pretty sure I can also use it to call for help if I fall when I'm home alone.
I can also ask it questions like, what's the weather forecast for today, etc.... I absolutely love it.
