Spot Light: Amazon Echo

Amazon Echo is designed around your voice. It’s hands-free and always on. With seven microphones and beam forming technology, Echo can hear you from across the room-even while music is playing. Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that can fill any room with immersive sound. Your Amazon Echo Device and you might be wondering what kind of accessories are available or how important they are. There is one feature that this gadget has and that is the ability to turn your lights on or off or Dim the light by voice command or anything else that is plugged in for that matter. That’s right, you ask Alexa to turn your lights on or off and that is exactly what she will do. Through your smart phone she can even turn on the lights as you are driving up to the house. It’s not just your garage door you can open when you are driving up to your house anymore.


What Else Can Alexa Turn On and Off?

Turn On Your Space Heater
Plays all your music from Prime Music, Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, and more
Coffee Maker
Night Lights
Christmas Lights
Iron (in case you accidentally left it on)
And much more!

As you can see, if you love convenience, then you will love this particular feature. To enjoy it all, you would need the “Wemo Switch and the Wemo Light Bulb”. Philips Hue, Insteon, Wink, Samsung SmartThings brand.

Hard Leather Cases – Just In Case…

The Amazon Echo also has hard leather cases which I think would be a necessity. Just don’t get one that has the appearance of a dog bone and you will be OK.

The one thing I really like about the protective cases is that they have a lot of different designs to make your device really snazzy looking. There are also tons of designs to choose from. I am not sure just how much a leather case would protect your new toy, but they also do have hard case protection as well.

Don’t Want To Protect It? Then Skin It!

Next up is some eye candy and that is the Skin. This doesn’t really fall into the I Need This category, but still is nice to look at. As with the protective leather cases the Amazon Echo skins also have many, many designs. I have read some reviews on these skins and some people have had a hard time getting the wrinkles out once they have put the skins on. I donai??i??t know maybe they didn’t put them on right as there are not a terrible amount of complaints on this issue.

Wooden Holders:

If you would rather not worry about putting your Amazon Echo in a protective case to stash it away somewhere then you could go with the Amazon Echo Wooden Holder that actually looks pretty damn good.

The Remote Control:

This was a pretty nice accessory to have the Amazon Echo Remote would have allowed you to control your Amazon Echo from any room in the house. I sure hope they are either making more or found whatever issues it was having and fix it so they can bring it back.



It seems that the Amazon Echo doesn’t have a ton of accessories, but we have to keep in mind that the Amazon Echo is really just a baby. It is growing with leaps and bounds and they are always coming out with new commands, features, and updates. So we need to keep a close eye to see what is next! In the meantime if you have an Amazon Echo you can easily see how all the features it does have has made your days much more productive and easier!
