The Echo Dot is the smallest speaker in the Echo family, which makes it one of the easiest ways to introduce Alexa into your abode if you’re a smart home newbie – and the clock in the latest version is a useful addition.
Not only does the Dot with Clock work superbly as a standalone product, it’s also a neat way to bring voice control to a myriad smart home and AV products too. You can also choose to pick it up with an Amazon Smart Plug or a Philip Hue smart lighting starter kit to really kick start your smart home experience.
For those a little more serious about their smart home, the Echo Show 5 is a clever little sausage, which still comes stuffed with all the Alexa smarts you could wish for, alongside some much improved speakers and a 5.5-inch LCD touch-screen. Browse the web, make a video call, see who’s buzzed your smart doorbell, check in on your security camera – the possibilities with the Show 5 are huge.
